  ROCHESTER – Oakland University Golf and
Learning Center’s tournament-tested and world-class golf course the R&S
Sharf will host the 27th GAM Net Team Championship presented by Michigan Golf

on the same team or on teams of two men or two women. All players compete with
their GAM/USGA handicap index in net four-ball stroke play.

world-class golf courses (Katke Cousins and R & S Sharf) and an expansive
Golf and Learning Center that features a Rick Smith Academy on the beautifully
wooded campus. The Sharf plays between 5,355 yards and 7,103 yards with six
possible tee positions.

  Several professional and amateur tournaments
have been hosted at Oakland University, including GAM qualifiers and
championships, high school championships as well as the Michigan PGA
Professional Championship.

heads the staff at Oakland U., which includes PGA professional Perry Busse and
Superintendent Tom Schall. For more information on the facilities, visit .
