Jim Jakubowski is a golf buddy whom we rib for ferreting out senior amateur events around the state. Jim’s motto should be: “Have senior event—Will travel.”
A resident of Grand Rapids and a past champion of the West Michigan Senior Championship, Jakubowski has played in senior events in Ann Arbor, Jackson, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Muskegon to mention only a few cities. The guy has an uncanny ability to search the internet for local events catering to senior competitors. If Isle Royale announces a senior event later this summer, expect to see “JJ” there.
Anyway, Jim tipped me off about the Battle Creek City Seniors being held next Tuesday and Wednesday (July 10-11) at Cedar Creek and Binder Park golf courses. Run by respected PGA pro Ron Osborne, the competition will be a 36-hole medal play event with an 8 am shotgun start each day at the respective courses. If riding, the all-inclusive price is $100. To enter, stop by or call Binder Park at 269-979-8250.
