Points Series Standings

Our 2014 points series standings have been updated and can be viewed on our website: http://www.northernwatersseries.com/standings.html

Log Lake Open (8/16) will be your final chance to qualify for our end-of-year skins. To qualify, players must play three singles events in the same division. So if you haven't already played two events by now, you cannot qualify for the skins match at Northern Michigan Championship. Better luck next year.

2014

Hello NWS fans!

We are in the process of putting together our series schedule for 2014 and want to know what Northern Michigan courses are your favorite to play tournaments at (and why). With the addition of so many courses to our area, we cannot possibly fit them all into one year's schedule.

Please send any comments/suggestions you have to: [email redacted]

There have been many improvements to Mt McSauba even since the NWS was there this summer - tee improvements, more trees out, sweet signage, and considerably more forgiving pars. We'd love to host another event, and if you want to get really crazy, we could do a 3 day event - River Road & McSauba combo...bring the NORTHERN Waters Series back up North!! ;)

Thanks for the input everyone!

Carly's Playground Putting Contest

Carly's Playground Putting Contest - June 9th, 2012 at 8:30pm @ Mt. Holiday, Traverse City, MI Do you have ice running through your veins to drain a 25 foot uphill pressure putt or the mental fortitude to overcome distractions? What about weaseling your disc through a 10 inch gap or a low ceiling knee shot...will your disc find the chains? You will be challenged with 18 putts across 6 different baskets. Each putt has a point value between 1 and 5 with more points awarded for more difficul ... more
