It is back! The Banana 101.5 Bad Golfers League presented by Soaring Eagle Casino returns to Swartz Creek Golf Course on Wednesdays starting in May. We are looking for teams of two to join us. This league always sells out quickly, so be ready to sign up Monday morning.

Here is a quick overview of the league this year:

  • Where: Swartz Creek Golf Course
  • When: Wednesday nights starting on May 1st, 2019.
  • Cost: $20/golfer each week (18 and over). Payment options are available below.
  • Other details: The Bad Golfers League will play on the front and back nines of Swartz Creek Golf Course each week (no league play on the executive nine.) Tee off each Wednesday begins at 5 pm and continues until all league players are on the course.
  • Rules: The Bad Golfers League follows standard scramble play for all teams. Both teammates will take their shots off the tee box and pick the best ball that was hit to play from. The team will repeat that process the entire hole.

It wouldn't be a fun league without some games to keep it interesting. Each week teams will be able to get in on skins and win prizes for closest to the pin and longest drives. "The Soaring Eagle Hole" is returning this year as well. Each week, one par 3 on each side will be designated as "The Soaring Eagle Hole." Land your tee shot in the circle around the pin and get in the running for an overnight stay and golf package at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.

Each player on the Bad Golfers League can pick from the following two options:

  • Full season payment upfront, $280 total. Players who decide to pay for the league completely up front will get:

    • No weekly fees (skins not included)
    • A Banana Bad Golfers League member card (new this year) which includes:
      • Nine holes and cart for only $5 at Swartz Creek Golf Course or Kearsley Lake Golf Course for the length of the season, a huge value. (Unlimitied rounds - Must call for a tee time - weekdays anytime - weekends after noon.)
      • Price includes one drink each week.
    • TOTAL PRICE: $280
  • Zero down payment up front. Players that choose this option will pay as follows:

    • Weekly fees of $20/golfer (skins not included)
    • TOTAL PRICE: $280

As always, each week will include great food and drink specials such as jello shots, dollar beers, and more. The madness begins on Wednesday, May 1st! Registration begins Monday, March 18th.
