Welcome to the Michigan Seniors 2017 Season.
2017 marks our 94th year and one of our finest tournament schedules ever with six events on eight of the finest venues in Michigan plus Inverness in Toledo and the Warren Course at the University of Notre Dame. All the tournaments are two-man, better-ball with a low-gross flight and two low-net flights. Four of the six events will offer both morning and afternoon shotguns. If you’d like to join us for our 2017 season contact the  Executive Director, Al Hibbert @ al@michiganseniorsgolf.org.
