Who do we think we are?

The Ann Arbor City Golf League has been a Thursday night fixture at Leslie Park Golf Course since before I joined. My personal participation in the league spans ten years.

Originally called the City Hall Golf League, members were affiliated with the Ann Arbor city government. Employees from many different departments assembled with the intention of having a fun time in a competetive but relaxed manner. Over time, city employees became a smaller and smaller part of the league as it opened participation to golfers outside of city government. The popularity of the league sustained it even as the intent of the league faded.

Now known as the City Golf League, we actually have participants that don't live locally. However, as great way to socialize, and as an easy excuse to escape work early, the league has prospered. We continue to sustain sixty golfers every season with fun and competition, and post round parties.

CONTRATULATIONS to Laurie Martin and Jack Germain!

Laurie Martin and Jack Germain each had a HOLE-IN-ONE on Thursday, July 6th!

Laurie's third career ace came on hole #12 and Jack's came on hole #7 while shooting a make-up score.

To my knowledge, only one other ace has been recorded in the league during my participation and has been long lost in history.

WE HAVE STATS! Check out our latest standings and scores entries.
Also, a full history of standings are available.

Due to RAINOUTS, our season will end September 7th.
Posted dates are in anticipation of a complete season.

Always put putt counts on all par 3 holes or you won't have the option of winning golf ball prizes on those holes.
