The Grand Elk Golf Club is excited to announce the 8th Annual Senior Elk Cup League with our 12 week championship race culminating in a Final Four Play-off at season-end.
Throughout the year, Senior League members will have the opportunity to earn points for both participation and performance in the weekly Thursday games. The four members with the greatest number of points as of August 23rd are invited to play in the “Final Four Cup Play-Off”, to be held on August 30th, 18-hole Chicago format to determine the “Senior Cup Champion”.
