Polo Fields Golf & Country Club Hosting 11th GAM Net Match Play

  ANN ARBOR – The Polo Fields Golf & Country Club has hosted a variety of Golf Association of Michigan tournaments in recent years, and this time the top net players get their chance to enjoy the club’s modern links style golf course.

  The club is hosting the 11th GAM Net Match Play Championship presented by Preferred Data Systems (PDS) Monday through Wednesday.

   A field of 78 golfers with GAM GHIN Handicap indexes of 20.4 or lower will play 18 holes of stroke play for net scores on Monday to determine a low 16 golfers to fill out a match play bracket. The round of 16 matches and quarterfinals are Tuesday, and the semifinal and final matches are on Wednesday.

  The Net Match Play Championship is part of the GAM’s continuing effort to serve more than just elite golfers with competitive tournaments by handicap index.

  The Polo Fields was designed by Ann Arbor’s own William Newcomb, an award-winning designer, and opened in 1995.

  It is a private golf club with generous fairways, a variety of distinctive design features through the 18 holes and fast challenging greens. The course plays to a maximum of 6,828 yards and has multiple tee positions starting from 5,122 yards.

  Brad Streza is the head golf professional and Michael Brown the superintendent. Visit polofieldssccmi.com for more information.

   Last year at Lakes of Taylor Golf Club, Grosse Ile’s Andrew Lang won the 10th GAM Net Mach Play title with a 2 and 1 win in the final over Livonia’s Justin Zagata.

  Lang is one of six former champions in the field including 2019 winner Chris Badgley of Trenton, 2018 winner Joe DeNino of Taylor, 2016 winner Jack McHale of Macomb, 2014 winner Mike Hayes of White Lake and 2013 winner Michael Piazza of Allen Park.
