As a reminder, the sign-up for 2022’s Hayward Open tournament kicks off at 8am on Sunday, October 31st. Sign-ups can be made through email ( or phone call (715-634-2760).

Additionally, we wanted to announce some new details about next year’s event. In response to some feedback we’ve gotten over the years, we have now decided to add a brand new Senior division element to the tournament format. It is our hope that this addition might expand the event’s accessibility, while still preserving what makes it a great tournament.

On Saturday, June 4th, everyone in the field, regardless of age, will play 18 holes from the (softer) Blue tees, which has been the standard format, business as usual.

On Sunday, June 5th, ages 61 and under will see the top 24 players square off in the traditional Sunday format (27 holes of stroke play from the Black tees), while for ages 62 and up, the top 24 players will vie to become the Senior Hayward Open Champion over 27 holes of stroke play from the White tees.

Having all golfers play the same tee box on Day 1 allows an older player who plays well on Day 1 to declare down for Day 2 if he feels his game is ready for the challenge of the Black tees!

The remaining field in both age groups will compete in the usual match play format on Sunday.

Also for 2022, we’re bringing back the well-received steak dinner in the Caddyshak Bar & Grill on Saturday night, along with a Calcutta. There will also be an optional practice round with a giant skins game on Friday, June 3rd. We anticipate it being a great weekend of golf and fun!

Here’s a little taste of 2021’s event to get the excitement building!

As we reach the last week of our season, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank everybody for supporting the club throughout 2021.  We had a terrific year, and hope all of you did during your visits to our club, as well.

Additionally, we wanted to share a video we’ve created to look back at the 2021 season at Hayward Golf Club.  We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to seeing everybody back out on the course in 2022!
