2012 will be highlighted by the 101st playing of the Michigan Amateur at Oakland Hills (North) and the 91st playing of the GAM Championship at Point O’Woods. Two of the most well known Michigan clubs hosting the two largest GAM tournaments this year.

On the Women’s side, the Amateur will stop Forest Akers on the campus of Michigan State, while the GAM Championship goes from the west side last year to the east side at Port Huron Golf Club in 2012. Though there are few changes in 2012 to formats, a Mid-Am Division will be added to the Women’s Senior Four-Ball when this 2nd edition of this Championship tees off at Edgewood.

The players who have been supportive of the Net Championships have a new title to compete for this year as a Net Match Play event has been added to the schedule. A three day format will allow for a qualifying round and a 32 player bracket to be gradually reduced at Hawk Hollow in September. The Net Amateur will be showcased at Plum Hollow Country Club for the first time while the Net Team will head to Prestwick Village.

Senior players can look forward to a plethora of competitive rounds in 2012. The GAM Men’s Senior will be held at Bloomfield Hills CC while the Women will head to Indian River GC for the first time. With the addition of a Senior Division in both Mid-Amateurs the seasoned player has more opportunities than before to compete at a more player friendly yardage. 

Junior golfers will take advantage of state championships at Muskegon Country Club, for the girls, and Flint Golf Club for the boys. Additionally Juniors are encouraged to participate in the GAM and Michigan Amateur to measure their game against the best in Michigan.

The 2012 season will rap up with the popular Tournament of Champions formats. The Senior Tournament of Champions will head back to Warwick Hills as the more established Tournament of Champions will take place at Detroit Golf Club. Any player who captures a GAM or Club Championship in 2012 will be eligible.

We are looking forward to a great year of competition in 2012 and hope you are as well.
