As the winter season continues to drag on, we wanted to bring you a pair of updates from the Presidents of our 18-Hole Leagues.

First, representing the Women’s League, Shannon Blegen…

2019 turned out to be a fantastic year for our Wednesday Women’s 18-hole golf league. We added 14 new members, and we enjoyed a wonderful Guest Day ending our 18 holes on the patio for a BBQ. Plus, fun games throughout the season. In 2019, the league had a total of 41 Birdies, and the top Birdie girl (with 8 total) was Cindy Ross.

Our Club Champion this year was Karen Giese. Karen had a hole in one on the last day of the championship. Congrats Karen!!

2019 Match play result: (champion/consolation)
1st flight Karen Giese/Cindy Ross, 2nd Pat Patko/Shannon Blegen, 3rd Nancy Rubinstein/Claudia Methven, 4th Betz Lastch/Deb Degrio, 5th Karen Scheldroup/Lori DeJoode

We are looking forward to 2020, and are hard at work planning our Ladies Invitational, set for June 17th, as well as another fun guest day at the end of July. League will start May 20th 2020, so mark your Calendars.

I would like to thank you all for a wonderful season, and I would also like to encourage all local ladies that would like to join a fun flexible league to consider joining us on Wednesday mornings. If you need additional information please contact the Pro Shop.

See you all when the snow melts,
Shannon Blegen

No, it’s not the Hayward Literary Guild. It IS the Hayward Men’s 18 Hole League. We play Tuesday mornings from May through Sept. We have room for both substitutes and full time players. If you are interested in joining our league please contact me, Steve Nichols, at

Sign-up packages will be sent out in March.

As we did last year, we’re once again offering a Super Bowl Square Board in the Pro Shop; this year’s proceeds will go directly towards our major 2020 course improvement project — the installation of a new irrigation system (more details on that can be found HERE).

The board has 100 squares, and each square costs $25. 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!

Additional details are as follows:

• You can purchase up to 4 squares or $100 worth.
• Payout will be $250 a quarter ($150 for exact numbers and $100 for reverse numbers for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd quarters)
• Final score will pay out $500 ($400 for exact numbers and $100 for reverse numbers)
• We will release board numbers as soon as we are full!
• Total payout is $1250.

The remaining amount raised amount will go towards the Course Improvement Fund for the irrigation system.

Also, for a little added excitement, email with your pick for the winning team and the winning score of the game, and the guess closest to the real final score will win one Golf & Dining Package (18-holes plus cart and a breakfast/lunch meal). Value of $70+!  In the case of a tie, we will employ a random draw.

We’re also hosting Hayward’s Cornhole World Championship VII in the Caddyshak on Saturday, February 1st, starting at 12pm! Format:

• 2 person teams.
• Cost is $25 dollars per person and includes entry fee, pizza buffet ,and a chance at prize money.
• Format will be 3 games, first to 21.
• The top 16 teams by total points will advance to the playoffs. In the playoff there will be a competitive division and a social division allowing more chances at prize money.

Full bar will be available. To enter your team, or to get more information, text at 715-558-3535, or send an email to

Finally, just a reminder that our weekly cribbage league resumes this Wednesday (January 22nd) at 6pm in the Caddyshak. We hope to see you there!

Remember, all events in the Caddyshak Bar & Grill are open to the public!
