The Ann Arbor City Golf League had been a Thursday night fixture at
Leslie Park Golf Course since before I joined. In 2002 we have moved
the league to Pierce Lake Golf Course in Chelsea. My personal
participation in the league spans more than a decade. |
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.
