Golf for Great Lakes Kids

The Great Lakes Children’s Museum is teaming up with the Leelanau Club at Bahle Farms for a golf benefit on May 13th, 2016.  Media sponsors are 106KHQ, 104.5 BOB, and Lite 96.3 radio.

The benefit event will be an 18 hole 2 person round robin scramble with a shotgun start at 1:00 pm.  The event will be followed with a dinner at 5:30 pm at the golf course. The field is limited to 120 players.  Registration for individuals is $125, foursomes $400.  The registration fee includes golf, cart, prizes and dinner for the golfer.  Registration is being managed online through the children’s museum website ( and through the museum’s Facebook page.

Sponsors are needed! Sponsorships start at only $100.00. Anyone interested in more information about hole or event sponsorships should contact or call 231 932 4526 and ask for Lisa. More information here: Sponsorship Agreements 2016 Golf

Prizes will be awarded for unassisted closest to pin (male/female), unassisted longest drive (male/female), and lowest overall score (male/female).  Mulligans, strings, and “chance cards” can be added for a fee during registration. Chance Cards (think the game Monopoly) are available for play in holes 1 through 6, 7 through 12, and 13 through 18 (one chance per set of six holes).  Just as in the game of Monopoly, chance cards might improve a player’s position or make the situation worse – you don’t know until the chance is opened.

Proceeds support hands-on learning fun through the Great Lakes Children’s Museum’s programs and exhibits. An average of 33,000 children and adults visit the museum each year. Last year roughly 40% of the museum’s admissions were free or subsidized by general admittance revenues and fund-raising events. In the last year, nearly $150,000 was invested in new or updated exhibits and programs. If you haven’t been here for a while- come on in and see what you’ve been missing! A LOT has changed!

The museum is located at 13240 S West Bay Shore Drive, Traverse City, 49684. Hours are currently Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday, 1 pm to 5 pm.  After Memorial Day, the museum opens on Mondays with the rest of the schedule remaining the same.  Admission is $7 per person, ages 1 through 100.
