Oak Pointe’s Championship Course hosting Third GAM Super Senior Championship

Pointe Country Club’s Championship Course, a traditional parkland course
redesigned by noted Michigan golf course architect Jerry Matthews, will host
the Third GAM Super Senior Championship presented by Sullivan Golf Travel
Monday and Tuesday.

   Oak Pointe, a
popular private club in Livingston County, features two golf courses; the
Championship, and the Honors Course.

   A field of 77 golfers
will play 36 holes of stroke play over two days to determine a champion among
the 55 Super Senior golfers over age 65. A champion will also be crowned in the
Legends Division of 22 golfers over age 70.

  The last two
champions, John French of Bloomfield Hills, the winner a year ago, and Terry
Moore of Grand Rapids, the 2015 champion, are in the field.

  The Legends Division
was added last year with Michael Phillips of Bloomfield Hills winning.

   The Championship
Course is a former major renovation project of Matthews. He did it based on his
principal of fitting the course to the natural terrain, and added 49 bunkers
through the rolling hills and valleys. Narrow fairways framed by natural
heather put the premium on accuracy on the course that plays to a maximum of
6,504 yards.

  Robin Rasch is the
head golf professional at Oak Pointe, and Charles Fort is the director of
agronomy and the superintendent.
