The Civic Club Benefit is back again! This tournament is a major tentpole event for Hayward Golf Club, enabling us to continue to invest in the facility and strive for an ever-higher level of quality for our guests and passholders. Proceeds from this year’s event will go directly to our course improvement fund, from which projects like the new all-weather tee on the driving range, the Caddshak Bar & Grill improvements, and the planting of new trees on Hole 16 have been made possible.

Individuals can sign up, and the 3-person teams will be assigned by the tournament committee. These 3-person teams will be playing in 6-somes for additional excitement as you keep an eye on your competition.

Hello Golfers,

I hope you are enjoying what is shaping up to be one of the greatest seasons in the nearly 100-year history of the Hayward Golf Club. That can’t happen without your support. Thank you! Following is an update on what is happening at HGC.

Season pass sales are at their highest level in nearly 15 years. Total rounds played are up. There is a good mix between daily fee and passholder rounds. We have seen a healthy increase in women, young adult, and youth play. Our Men’s 18 Hole, Women’s, Men’s 9 Hole and Thursday leagues are having great years. Our Women’s League launched a new event that hosted over 110 players last week, and the extremely successful Solheim Cup tournament was introduced last August. There was a record turnout at the recent Hayward Open, as well as at many outside tournaments held this year. There are a lot of tournaments slated for the next few months. Check our website for dates and details.

Our Caddyshak Bar & Grill has undergone a complete makeover: new paint, new carpet, new decorations, added sound-proofing, reorganized bar work area, new kitchen equipment, improved kitchen layout, and expanded the pergola seating area outside. The menu has been revamped and the food is excellent. We’ve added staff, and all employees have completed an extensive training program. The hard work and investment is paying off. Food and beverage sales are up significantly over last year, and well ahead of plan.

Thank goodness for the new irrigation system! In spite of extremely dry conditions over the past month, the course looks good and is in great shape. Green speeds have been increased to the 10-11 range, and are posted daily in the Pro Shop. Fairway lengths have been reduced. Four new trees have been planted on the 16th hole, and eight more will be added this fall. We will be adding a “first cut” of rough along the fairways and around the greens. We are working to improve the condition of our sand traps and will be testing different ways to maintain them, as well as reducing the amount of sand in a trap. A new all-weather tee was installed on the practice range and target greens are being added.

The club is in solid shape financially: revenue, profit, and cash on hand are up from last year and ahead of plan. We made our first of twenty annual loan payments on the irrigation system this spring, and have already banked the funds to make next year’s payment.

The Hayward Golf Club is committed to serving the Hayward area by offering an excellent and welcoming experience for all golfers and the community at large. Our objective is to provide “ a great golf course where you belong.” I hope you are enjoying Hayward Golf and having a great summer. Thank you for your support!

Best regards,

Steve Nichols
President, Hayward Civic Club
