Detroit News/GAM Hole In One Contest is Sept. 20; here are the tee times

The Detroit News/Golf Association of Michigan Hole In One Contest is back. And, judging by the response, Metro Detroit golfers are pretty darn happy about that.

A record 400 entries were submitted to participate in the annual contest, which is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 20, on the seventh hole at Whispering Willows Golf Club in Livonia.

Maria Lobbestael, 61, participates in a past Hole-In-One Contest.

If you signed up online, your tee-time window is listed below; there are three slots, for morning, mid-day and late afternoon/evening. If you didn't sign up, you can still show up and take your swings Sept. 20. You must have had a hole-in-one at a regulation golf course to be eligible (we go by the honor system).

The contest is free to enter, though a donation for Folds of Honor is suggested. Folds of Honor provides scholarships for children and spouses of service members killed or wounded in battle.

Prizes will be awarded for the top shots in several categories, ranging from junior all the way to super-senior.

All shots will be measured, and each participant's closest shot will be published in The Detroit News within the week following the contest.

The contest, which goes back decades, was canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
