Posted by Sal LaFata on Wednesday, March 29, 2017

If you’re like me, the only thing better than golfing with your friends, is golfing with your friends for free. Well, thanks to the GAM and some of our participating clubs across the state of Michigan, you and three of your friends will have that opportunity this season.

Throughout the entire 2017 golf season, the GAM will be hosting a “Course of the Week” contest with the winner each week winning a free round of golf with carts for 4 people.

How do I participate: All you need to do is visit gam.org and login with your username and password. Make sure you submit your best guess as you only get one guess per week.

How do I win: Each week one photo from the selected course will be featured and all you need to do is correctly identify the course. ... View this Post.

Confessions of a Niner
Posted by Susan Smiley on Tuesday, February 07, 2017

I must confess that I am a 9-hole player. Occasionally I might foray into 18-hole territory but for the most part, a 9-hole round fits in better with my lifestyle.

Perhaps growing up within biking distance of a 9-hole course conditioned me to realize way before it was trendy that “nine is fine.” The little 9-hole course also had a driving range and putt-putt so for kids, making it the perfect place to spend a lazy summer afternoon. ... View this Post.

If you’re a golfer in Michigan and have not been able to get to warmer temps this winter, you are no doubt experiencing golf withdrawal.
