Greg Davies started his golf career caddying at Edgewood Country Club while playing high school golf at Walled Lake Central, and in 1983 he finished second in the state high school championship.

Greg went on to play collegiately at the University of Oklahoma where four of his teammates, Craig Perks, Glen Day, Grant Waite and Todd Hamilton would all go on to win PGA Tour Events.

Among his wins: The Michigan Medal Play, the 2006 Michigan Amateur where he beat future PGA Tour player Ryan Brehm in the final, two GAM Michigan Mid-Amateurs, two GAM Michigan Mid-Senior Amateurs and the 2023 Michigan Senior Amateur at Orchard Lake Country Club. Greg was named the GAM Player of the Year in 2006 and the GAM Senior Player of the Year in 2023.

Davies dominated the Michigan Public Links from the mid 1990’s through the mid 2010’s winning the Michigan Public Links Match Play four times, the Michigan Public Links Stroke Play twice and the Syron Memorial twice while adding a record eight Public Links Player of the Year awards. Davies is the only golfer to ever win the Michigan Public Links “Grand Slam” in one season – the Michigan Public Links Match Play, the Michigan Public Links Stroke Play and the Syron Memorial in 1999.

The West Bloomfield golfer also qualified for three USGA State Teams, two USGA Mid Am’s, the USGA Amateur Public Links and the 2021 U.S. Senior Open where he beat European Ryder Cupper Jarmo Sandelin in a playoff. Greg partnered with Ian Harris to win the GAM Senior-Mid Am title in 2022 and in 2023 made his 11th Sweet 16 at the Michigan Amateur at the age of 55.
