This year this classic 'original six' tournament moves to a classic course Don Ross designed layout at Chandler Park in Detroit. The Caddyshack Classic is an 18-hole, individual stroke-play, net score competition on the Tour's East division schedule.   Hosted annually by the Links at Lake Erie, food is included so stay after the tournament. It is optional to watch the movie the night before to brush up on your quotes.

Our own Helen Puffenberger will sponsor the Caddyshack Classic in honor of her niece Reese
Reese is my great niece and was born on April 25, 2020. She was diagnosed with late onset Pompe disease.  

Pompe disease is a rare (estimated at 1 in every 40,000 births), inherited and often fatal disorder that disables the heart and skeletal muscles.  It is caused by mutations in a gene that makes an enzyme called acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA).  Normally, the body uses GAA to break down glycogen, a stored form of sugar used for energy.  The enzyme performs its function in intracellular compartments called lysosomes.  Lysosomes are known to function as cellular clearinghouses; they ingest multiple substances including glycogen, which is converted by the GAA into glucose, a sugar that fuels muscles. In Pompe disease, mutations in the GAA gene reduce or completely eliminate this essential enzyme.  Excessive amounts of lysosomal glycogen accumulate everywhere in the body, but the cells of the heart and skeletal muscles are the most seriously affected. 

Without enzyme replacement therapy, the hearts of babies with infantile onset Pompe disease progressively thicken and enlarge.  These babies die before the age of one year from either cardiorespiratory failure or respiratory infection.  For individuals with late onset Pompe disease, the prognosis is dependent upon the age of onset.  In general, the later the age of onset, the slower the progression of the disease.  Ultimately, the prognosis is dependent upon the extent of respiratory muscle involvement.

There is no cure for Pompe disease. Individuals with Pompe disease are best treated by a team of specialists (such as cardiologist, neurologist, and respiratory therapist) knowledgeable about the disease, who can offer supportive and symptomatic care. Enzyme replacement therapy is also available.

Please help me to raise money for this devastating disease. Charity is the United Pompe Foundation (

Two Extra Mulligans will be offered and can be used on any shot except a putt.
*** Like last year, we will charge $10 to each players account for the extra Mulligans***

This year we will have several on course prizes and a random draw for more fabulous prizes.
