Golf Courses are closed!!

I verified with AAGOC and also a friend that works security. They both confirmed that the golf course will be closed.



EDIT: AAGOC will be open to members and those with tickets only not to the general public.

FWIW, someone on Rivals just posted this (15 minutes ago):

The Ann Arbor Golf Course is not closed tomorrow. Just got off the phone with the events director and she said as of now it is open to the public. We will make an announcement on the sports radio stations tomorrow morning if it is closed.

As of now, it is open to the public for tomorrow.

Is this ticket the ones that you can get on park n party? I hope so cause then I have nothing to worry about.

EDIT: I just called park n party, and they said if you did a reservation through them you can get in. So i'll be enjoying the AAGOC tomorrow!

The tournament is on the UofM course which, without any confirmation, has also been rumored to be closed tomorrow.  I was just trying to give another reason why they would close the course.  It is first and foremost one of the nicest courses in the US and recently rated as one of the top 30 College courses in the Country (along with Radrick Farms).

2 years ago against Iowa it was raining all day before and early morning.  Word was they were not going to open the courses up but I was lined up in the morning along with other cars and as scheduled they opened everything up.  As mentioned above, it sounds correct that they make their decision earlier to game time.  Sun should pop up today!

So this throws a massive wrench into things...

When does Ann Arbor Pioneer open? I have seen 12:00 from the press release, but was also told it would open at 7:30 at the normal time.

I just called the University GC and it will be "morning decision" as to whether or not they will be open for tailgating tomorrow. It will be announced on the radio stations listed on and will be a strict noon open if they decide to open the golf course. 


I also talked to a woman at Pioneer who said that the cops are the ones trying to prevent them from allowing parking tomorrow. Her advice to me was to get my car on the lot sometime around 6 AM (yes, 6 AM) provided they are open to park tomorrow.

AAP does not control the parking, a separate company does. It's called I believe and it specifically says they will open the parking lots at noon. And earlier this week they said they will not allow traffic to be backed up for people waiting to park.

I believe your info may be wrong. I would attempt to contact the actualy company, not AAP.

I have never parked at Pioneer before but I have heard they are extremly tough on drinking there bc its public school property. Anyone ran into this before?

ive parked at pioneer for years, yeah they say "no alcohol" but that is not the case at all.  the beer thirty tailgate gathers a large group to shotgun beers every half hour all day long.  ive never seen anyone even trying to hide the fact that they are drinking.  its a pretty good time over there.

I just checked UM official parking and traffic site and it is saying the gulf course will be open. Everyone probably should wait until a verifiable announcement is made before working on alternative plans.
