The weather loves to throw us a few curveballs here in Wisconsin, and as we’re looking at the forecast, it seems there’s a very real possibility of frost the next two mornings — Friday and Saturday. Being Memorial Day weekend, our tee sheet is currently full, so we wanted to make everyone aware of the potential for some significant delays.

We will be doing absolutely everything we can to get groups teed-off as quickly as possible. If you have a tee time the next two mornings, contact the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to stay up to date on course conditions and the length of delays.

On Thursday, June 10th, we’re hosting a Wine Tasting and small plates event on our beautiful outdoor (and newly-expanded) patio and pergola seating area.

Beginning at 5:00pm, the event will feature 7 unique wines from Chateau St. Croix Winery, along with 7 different appetizers to pair with each wine selection, picked by their wine expert, James Peterson.

Each wine and each appetizer will be served together, and introduced by James.

Cost is $60 per couple or $35 per person. The evening will also feature live acoustical music courtesy of Tom Sobczak.

This event is open to the public, and you can make your reservation by calling the Caddyshak Bar & Grill at (715) 634-2460, or book directly through our online store:

Wines featured during the tasting will be for sale afterwards in the Caddyshak, as well. It should be a really fun evening of drink and food, and we hope to see many of you there!

Also, many have requested it, and now it’s here — the Travis Mathew clothing line is in-stock at the Hayward Golf Club Pro Shop!

Memorial Day Weekend has always been our unofficial start of summer here at Hayward Golf Club, when things really kick into high gear for the season. With the weather cooperating, it should be an excellent time to get in some rounds of golf!

The Caddyshak Bar & Grill will be serving breakfast on Saturday and Sunday (and lunch every day), with the full-service bar ready to meet your beverage needs, as well!

So whether you’re coming out to golf, or just want to enjoy a meal or a cocktail on our newly-expanded patio area, we hope you’ll make HGC part of your Memorial Day Weekend plans!

We wanted to make sure everyone was aware of our Couples Events on periodic Sunday afternoons throughout the summer, starting this Sunday, the 23rd. This is an excellent opportunity to play with other couples and hopefully enjoy some fun golf, beautiful weather, and good company!

All events except the Club Championship will be 9 holes. Couples are more than welcome to continue playing a second 9, but the day’s format will only involve the first 9.

Entry is $5 per couple for prizes. Tee times start at 1:00pm.

The current schedule for the season is as follows:

May 23rdTwo Person Scramble

Sign-up for each event with the Pro Shop. Whether you can only make a few of the dates, or would be at each and every one, we would love to have you as part of this fun group!

Also, at 6:30pm tonight, Golf Pro Ben Kanters is participating in a Facebook LIVE event hosted by the Hayward Lakes Visitor and Convention Bureau to answer some questions about golfing in the area.  If you’re interested in checking that out, you can find more information HERE!

 

Fitting Days are a bit of an annual tradition for us here at HGC, and this year is no exception. They provide a great opportunity for our players to try out some of the latest equipment from the leading manufacturers in the business!

The first Fitting Day coming up on our calendar is for Callaway on Tuesday, June 1st, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Sessions will be available in 20 to 30 minute slots, and the Callaway representative will have a launch monitor to add a technological element to helping you find the best clubs for your needs!

Reservations for this Fitting Day are required, so call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to book a slot! Be on the lookout for information about further Fitting Days a bit later in the season.

Lastly, just a reminder that the PGA Championship Pool we’re running in the Pro Shop is still open for entrants until tonight!

• Pick any four golfers in the field.
• Best three golfers’ scores will be used.
• Pick winner’s score (+/- to par) for tie-breaking purposes.
$10 entry.

If you’re interested, contact the Pro Shop by this evening!

The Caddyshak Bar & Grill has introduced a range of new items for golfers on the go! Among the new offerings are:

• Warm Breakfast Sandwiches (Kolaches)
• Warm Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
• Pizza Slices
• Hot Dogs & Brats
• Warm Cookies
• Salads
• Various Snacks

The warm breakfast sandwiches will be available in the morning (perfect for golfers to grab on days when the kitchen is not serving the breakfast menu), before transitioning to some of the other items around midday.

So whether you’re in need of a breakfast sandwich before a morning round, a snack while you’re making the turn, or something fast after you’re done, these items will provide a great supplement to our regular menu offerings!

Also, just in! The new 2021 Callaway Ladies Reva 11-piece set.

This set is in extremely high demand, with current projected wait times for new orders stretching out as long as six months! We’ve got this set on-hand in the Pro Shop priced at $1299.99.

This is an excellent set, but currently very difficult to find, so if you’re in the market for a new ladies set — or know someone who is! — contact the Pro Shop immediately. We don’t expect this set to be available on our floor for long!

We’re in the process of implementing a few changes and improvements to our practice facility. The first of which, our new all-weather tee box, is finished and ready for use.

This area will allow us to better maintain our natural range tee by giving the ability to periodically shift to the all-weather tee so the turf can regrow. It will also be utilized heavily in the spring and fall when grass is dormant.

We’ve also installed some new flag targets in strategic locations down the driving range.

The net that provides a buffer parallel to the road is being repaired, as well.

As the season progresses, there will be further upgrades on our practice facility area, and we look forward to keeping you all posted as these move closer to fruition!
