About the Michigan Publinx Golf Association

The Michigan Publinx Golf Association (MIPUBLINX) is one of the oldest and most respected golf organizations in the state. Founded in 1951, the Michigan Publinx Golf Association along with the Golf Association of Michigan (GAM) and the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) are the original organizations established to serve golfers in the State of Michigan.

The MIPUBLINX membership reaches a diverse cross section of individuals from all walks of life.  Today, the MIPUBLINX represents hundreds of members.  The MIPUBLINX has a proud history of supporting golf for players of all levels and abilities.

We conduct competitions throughout the season.  At our core are the Championship Series Tournaments, a series of one-day stroke play events for players in Championship, Senior Scratch, and Net divisions.  Additionally, we conduct two multi-day tournaments:  the Michigan Publinx Medal Play Championship (formerly the Lee Gohs Classic), which is a 54-hole stroke play event.  The second of our major championships is the State Match Play, which is a tournament for both Championship and Senior divisions where players are seeded after two stroke play qualifying rounds and then match play begins to determine a champion.  The State Match Play is one of the oldest continuous statewide amateur championships contested in the state.

Consistently, MIPUBLINX members have won State & National major events including the Michigan Amateur, GAM Championship, Horton Smith / Michigan Medal Play and the USGA Amateur Publinx Championship.  MIPUBLINX membership includes a USGA Rules of Golf booklet, USGA certified handicap & eligibility for MIPUBLINX Deyak Invitational and Atlas Trophy Team.  Players will also have the opportunity to win gift certificates for top finishers in all of our events. Our competitions are conducted at some of the best public golf facilities in Michigan.

Along with these benefits you will become a member in the Golf Association of Michigan with access to their benefit packages, such as discount golf around the state etc.

So whether your handicap is zero to 20, or your age is 18 or older; if you want a competitive golf organization committed to providing excellent competition for all levels of ability, the MIPUBLINX is the place to be in the Michigan golf community.
