Tournaments at Manistee Golf & Country Club

We host several tournaments at Manistee Golf & Country Club. Below is our current list of golf tournaments.

2nd Annual

Mike Fatke Memorial Hickory Tournament

Mike Fatke, Manistee Golf and Country Club’s longtime course Superintendent, took impeccable care of the course he loved. He could often be found, late in the day, playing the back nine with his hickories. To honor Mike we are hosting the 2nd Annual Mike Fatke Memorial Hickory Tournament, Saturday August 15, 2020. A practice round may be arranged on Friday, August 14 for those interested.

Due to COVID19 the tournament will be limited to a one day Two Person Scramble with a swap meet and demo day in the morning, lunch at 12:00, a shotgun start at 1:00 and awards at 5:00. We hope to return to a two day event, including social activities, in 2021.

Players are advised to form their own teams. However, if one signs up as an individual every effort will be made to pair. Cost $50 per player, $100 per team. One need not have played with hickories prior to the tournament. In addition to honoring Mike a goal of the tournament is to introduce new players to the joy of playing hickory golf and to enjoying the camaraderie of those who play. For those players without a hickory handicap adjustments will be made.
