Course Improvements and Greens Roller Fundraiser

12th Tee Box

As some of you may know, we’re in the process of rebuilding a tee box on hole number 12. Progress is continuing, and our course superintendent believes it could be in use by sometime in September!  Here are a couple of pictures of the ongoing work.

A big thank you to Peter and Tracy Kooman for their efforts in spearheading this project and donating to the cause. Additional thanks to Larry Hendrickson, Bruce Christensen, Steven Broback, Greg Swiler, Barry Swiler, Larry Damico, John Seaberg, Rick Neville, John Curphey, and Derek Nelson for their generous support.

Greens Roller Fundraiser

We had the opportunity to demo a greens roller over the Memorial Day and Hayward Open weekends, and the response was very positive to the improved condition of the greens. As such, with the overwhelmingly positive reaction, we are planning to invest in a roller of our own, something which was not budgeted for in 2017 but will represent a tremendous course improvement for us, bringing increased smoothness, speed, and healthier greens to Hayward Golf Club.

We are kicking off a fundraiser that will not only allow you to support this important step for our course, but will also give you a chance to win some big bucks.

As you can see above, we’ve got a square board up in the pro shop. Each square costs $100 and will entitle you to a chance to win. We’re hosting a Packers party on September 10th for the Packers/Seahawks game, and during the game we’ll be giving away four cash payouts of $1,000, with the remainder of the entry money going towards the purchase of the greens roller.

This is the setup: each square is associated with a set of secret numbers (to be revealed later), and if your numbers correspond to the score of the game at the end of each of the four quarters, you win $1,000 (for each quarter!).  In total, this fundraiser will account for about half of the money we need for the roller, and the club will make up the difference.

It should be a really fun event and will go towards helping elevate our club to an even greater level! While we’re raising money, you will be able to experience how much better the roller makes our greens, as Greg Dobbs, the course superintendent, has negotiated extended terms allowing for the use of the roller throughout the summer.

Stop in to the Pro Shop to get your name on the board!
