Can the mods explain why were are not allowed to discuss COVID impact on Michigan golf? It is a real thing. I keep seeing people’s comments being deleted. I know this is your site and you make rules. I just want to understand reasoning.

interesting development at least for Kent county. This has been the policy at my home course as well. Nice to hear someone finally ask the golf question regarding clubs with members, not just asking about the general public.

JMO, not a mod, but I think it's got to do with flagrant discussion baiting, thinly-veiled insults, and repeated patterns of violations from this thread. It's a touchy subject, for sure, and hurling insults and swears is most assuredly not the way to maturely handle the discussion.

Dave, that's why the site has sucked the past few years. Not what it used to be with their changes.

I screwed up and missed the memo on what we’re allowed to purchase, painted the walls of my house when we bought it but never got around to doing the trim around the floor. Was going to work on that this week with the weather being crappy but apparently I can’t buy paint now. I’m gonna lose it if the power goes out, hopefully this wind today isn’t as bad as they are saying. There was a massive tornado down south that was on the ground for 100 miles, the flying debris actually showed up on radar.

You can buy paint at some stores like smaller hardware stores (ACE, True Value) or paint shops like Sherman Williams. The restriction was on Mendards, Lowes, etc because too many people shopping those stores.

All our club members were circulating the Grand Rapids story. Our board has said no golf allowed, but we can use property to walk if we want. I am guessing the Governor's office or Michigan AG will make a statement on it at some point.

Thanks for the heads up on paint, need something to do this week. We’ve been open for members this whole time, a local judge who’s a member at another club wrote a letter our GM was going to use if needed basically saying nothing wrong is going on here leave it alone. As far as I know he hasn’t had to use it, obviously if they were threatened with a fine we’d have to stop playing. The only thing pissing me off is the amount of non members out there, on nice day’s there will be a group on every hole and about half are members.

We had to put a bunch of no-trespassing signs up on the course - way too many non-members using it to walk their dogs. Also some people golfing.

Well, so much for that...

Man, I am super jealous of people with basements that have ceilings high enough to put in a sim. Looks awesome!

As expected, Dates for Michigan Am qualifiers have been changed (and they pushed back the entry deadline to 5/11), in many cases. I think it's probably wishful thinking that these will go on as currently scheduled, but here are the new dates:

109th Michigan Amateur Qualifier Dates and Sites (NEW DATES/SITES IN BOLD)May 18: Gowanie GC (Mt. Clemens)

May 20: Washtenaw GC (Ypsilanti)

May 21: Bedford Valley GC (Battle Creek)

May 23: Forest Akers GC - West (Lansing)

May 26: Edgewood CC (Commerce Twp.)May 28: Fieldstone GC (Auburn Hills)

May 30: Greywalls (Marquette)

June 3: Boyne Highlands – Moor (Harbor Springs)

June 4: Kaufman GC (Wyoming)

June 5: Twin Lakes G&SC (Oakland)June 9: Salem Hills GC (Northville)June 10: Owosso CC (Owosso)

Most private clubs that got permission from local police are opening for play with very strict guidelines. Tee times only, no guest play, cups turned upside down, must park two cars away from another in parking lot. Tee times 20 min apart to prevent “gathering”. Just one tee marker for each set so you you have at least a 6 foot area to tee off. There will be no money exchanged , no carts, no contact with employees, in fact this is probably much safer then going to the local drugstore

The issue was at least at my club was people driving by calling the police reporting people outside on a golf course, these were pry the same people reporting people being outside doing yard work. Now that that has been cleared up, let’s hope the weather gets back to what it was like 2 weeks ago.

 

Side note, Does anyone know anyplace open to swap out adapters on a new shaft?

I'm signed up for the one at Salem Hills. In normal times, I play there in the mornings once or twice a week before work once the weather starts to turn nice, so I know the course probably better than any other.

If the goal is to qualify this is the one to play in every year. Its on the same day as the first round of the Horton Smith so most of the better SE michigan Am players don't have the option to play there. Its also a very east course if you can move the ball left to right. I typically caddie for a buddy who plays there and he makes it through easy. If my ball turns right its because I shanked it so I've never tried there.

    • APPLY NOW: L.A.B. Golf MEZZ.1 Putter (Early Access) Member Testing! 10 Testers Needed!
      L.A.B. Golf is choosing ten GolfWRX members to receive their MEZZ.1 putter early and put their brand new product to the test before reporting back to the community about what they see. The selected testers will be one of the first to experience the MEZZ.1 from L.A.B. GOLF, their newest Lie Angle Balanced design, ahead of it's January 2022 launch!
       
      About The L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Putter
      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
