As all golfers in Michigan know by now, the Governor has put a stop to golf in Michigan for the next month. The MHT hopes that you will all abide by this decision (unless an existing petition drive, or other action by the governor, causes an amendment of the order) and stay at home and stay safe.  We’re told that the next couple of weeks are critical to slowing down the progress of the virus and I hope you will all take appropriate action.

As a result of the order, and in consultation with Jim Hannen, organizer of May’s first event in Jackson, I have decided to move the Match Play event from May 3 to July 12..  Since the Marshall event was already cancelled, I’ve decided to not try to schedule a replacement event in it’s place, leaving May empty of MHT events.  If the situation turns around quickly and or the order is modified or lifted, I will quickly try to schedule something before the end of May.

As far as I know, events beginning in June and throughout the summer are all still on.  If you have any other information or suggestions about the schedule, please let me know at michiganht@gmail.com.

Stay safe and we’ll be back on the course soon.
