As we roll into August, it’s time to start thinking about our Men’s Club Championship, which will take place over two days – Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th – and which will be open to all male members of Hayward Golf Club.

We’ve cooked up a slightly different format this year to both add a little spice to things and to make the event more accommodating to all ability levels.

On that Saturday, you can play golf with whichever other golfers you’d like. You will already be flighted, but you can build your own foursome with anybody (or have Pro Shop staff help put you into a group if you’d prefer). Tee times will run from 11:30am to 2:00pm, with dinner to follow play on Saturday evening. During dinner, we will reveal the pairings and tee times for Sunday’s second round, which will run between 9:0oam and 11:30am.

The Champion will not only receive a trophy, but also a designated parking space reserved just for the champ!

We are also going to have a Senior Division this year for golfers ages 65 and above, so for the first time ever we will have a Senior Club Champion!

Whatever level of skill you’re at, whatever your handicap might be or which tee box you like to play from, there will be a flight for you to be competitive in.

During Men’s League this coming Tuesday would be a great time to sign up! Otherwise, call or stop in at the Pro Shop at your convenience!

Women’s Club Championship – August 2nd and 9th

Our annual Women’s Club Championship will be held on two consecutive Wednesdays, the 2nd and 9th of August.
