GAM sends out Michigan Links Course Directory

FARMINGTON HILLS — The first wave of the Golf Association of Michigan’s annual Michigan Links Course Directory goes in the mail this week to mostly public members along with their membership packets.

The theme is “Moving Golf Forward.”

“The GAM is proud to present its annual publication, which celebrates the past season and previews the next,” said Chris Whitten, the GAM’s executive director. “This is the culmination of months of work — preparing stories, shooting photos and framing the point of view. Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you on the links soon.”

The GAM celebrated its centennial year of serving the game of golf in 2019 and now has nearly 60,000 individual members as part of more than 450 golf clubs and courses.

A second wave of the publication will go in the mail at the end of this month, primarily to members associated with private golf clubs in the state.

Michigan Links, one of the many benefits of GAM membership, includes a comprehensive course directory, schedules, previews of major championships, stories about GAM members and partners and more. The cover stories for the 2020 publication are headlined “Getting Ready: The Next 100 Years,” and “The Future is Here: People Power the Game.”

The directory and more information will also be available online at GAM.org. Some scheduling changes due to the COVID-19 outbreak will be necessary, and some have already been made, according to GAM officials. Members can to refer to GAM.org for rescheduling information, etc.

“We’re moving forward,” Whitten said. “At the time of this release, the summer tournament schedule has only been affected with some USGA qualifiers being canceled and one GAM junior event being postponed (GAM Junior Kickoff), and that will be rescheduled. We are continuing to monitor the executive order and guidelines regarding COVID-19 moving forward, but we still anticipate a busy and successful season of tournament golf.”
