Dear Members and Friends,


This has been another crazy unseasonably warm winter season with little snow and a rollercoaster of different conditions thrown at us. We trust this winter has been very kind to you and everyone is ready to get back out and enjoy your club again real soon. We even opened the golf course in the month of February and it was nice to see several members take advantage of some winter golf at GLCC. The grounds staff has been very busy all winter with many different equipment and furniture projects along with keeping up with all the winter activities here at the club. We were able to successfully complete our winter tree removal/trimming project on the golf course despite the continuous freeze/thaw events and our lack of frost in the ground this winter.


The turf battled through the winter quite well and we are very pleased with the turf health going into spring so far. This is never a guarantee coming out of winter but especially this winter. The grounds team has been working very hard this spring so far trying to get the course into shape for the season, along with working on some special projects and repairing the course from the winter tree removals. We are about to start our annual application for seed head control on Greens, Tees and Fairways. This is the same program we have been on for the past 17 years now and has worked well for us. Please remember that with this application you could see some discoloration; this is normal and usually lasts about 4 weeks. This is a necessary evil but will help improve the putting surface throughout the spring along with better overall turfgrass health throughout the summer months to come.


The driving range is scheduled to open in the middle of April weather permitting. The reason for the delay is to give the range a better chance of recovering from the damage caused by using it. Seed used to fill the damaged areas will not germinate until closer to the middle of the month. Without the chance of recovery, we would damage the tee surface too quickly and be left with a compromised tee during the peak of the season. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.


The grounds team is here to make your club experience as special and enjoyable as possible. If there is anything we can do, please feel free to give me a call anytime. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting season here at the club and I hope to see you all very soon.


Best Regards,

Hello GLCC Members!


             My name is Benjamin Keller and I have recently accepted the position of Waterfront Director for the upcoming summer. This will be my fourth summer working on the waterfront staff. I am hoping to bring back members of the staff from previous summers. So, don’t be surprised to see some familiar faces watching the water. We as a staff are committed to creating a safe, welcoming, and most of all fun atmosphere for our members!


A little bit more about me, I live in Kalamazoo and graduated from Kalamazoo Central in 2017. I now attend the University of Michigan and I am looking forward to my sophomore year there next fall. I have had the pleasure of growing up on Gull Lake. My aunt owns a house on the South end of the lake where I have spend each and every summer of my life! I am also a competitive swimmer and enjoy spending as much time on the lake as possible.


The safety of members is our utmost priority. We are open to hearing all constructive criticism and pointers on our work at any time. If you have suggestions, comments, or questions please do not hesitate to contact me at


Thank you all and we look forward to a great upcoming summer!

Dear Members,


             It’s hard to believe that winter is almost over and we are already       planning for the upcoming summer season here at the Club! We are all looking forward to starting to see all of you who have traveled South for the winter begin to return, and to jump back into the busyness that the spring brings to the Club. 

Just a reminder that we are no longer mailing out the Gull Post and  Family Fun Guide. I will be posting a link on both the main page of our website and on the bi-weekly emails that go out. There will be hard copies located in the office for your convenience, and if you would like one mailed to you, please let me know.

Don’t forget to check out the Face book, Twitter and Instagram pages for event information, announcements and photos!

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions about the roster, website, our social media outlets, Clubster, etc. I’m happy to help!
