Hayward Golf Club is thrilled to invite all aspiring young golfers to our 6-week-long junior golf clinic. The program is designed to give juniors the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the game, and will include 4 separate playing stations: putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing. Additionally, our knowledgeable and experienced teaching staff provides a golf course knowledge station and mini par 3 course.

• Program runs every Thursday afternoon between 1-3PM from June 10th to July 15th.
• Aimed at ages 6 to 14.
• Program will culminate with our Junior Championship
• Cost is $50 per child (which includes prizes and gift for all participants).
• Clubs will be provided for children who don’t have any.

Pre-registration is strongly suggested. Golfers can register in the Pro Shop or by calling (715)-634-2760.

For additional information, or to schedule private junior lessons, please contact Assistant Pro Mitchell Byrd at (715)-558-4726.

We’ve also got a few updates currently in the works around the facility to share a bit about. First, our maintenance crew is in the process of installing a new, all-weather tee box on our driving range.

This will provide the ability to better maintain our natural range tee by giving the option to periodically shift to the new tee so the turf can regrow.  It will also be utilized heavily in the spring and fall when grass is dormant.  Look for continued practice facility improvement as the season rolls on.

Also, we’re expanding the patio and pergola area outside of the Caddyshak Bar and Grill. The addition will offer outstanding views of the 18th hole! As you can see, the concrete has been poured…

… and the wood that will be used for the new pergola is being prepared for assembly!

Finally, we wanted to mention that the Caddyshak’s menu has been tweaked a bit from last year to offer a selection of new items alongside some old favorites. The menu can be found HERE.  Lunch is served from 11am to 4pm, seven days a week.  Breakfast is served from 8am to 12pm, Saturdays and Sundays.  Call (715) 634-2460 to book a reservation.

Also, for current or 2020 passholders, just a reminder that our Season Pass Referral Promotion is still in full effect. If you speak to a friend or neighbor, who was not already a passholder last year (2020), and that person then becomes a passholder at your referral, we’re offering you a credit that can be applied towards the purchase of your 2021 pass or, if you’ve already purchased your 2021 pass, general course credit usable in any department (Pro Shop or Caddyshak Bar & Grill). There are three credit tiers:

$75 for referral resulting in a Couple/Family Pass
$50 for referral resulting in a Single Pass
$35 for referral resulting in a Twilight or Young Adult Pass

There are no limitations on the number of referrals you can send our way! This promotion is running through May 15th, 2021.

Finally, our Passholder Directory for 2021 is live on our website, and it will be updated throughout the next several months. Call the Pro Shop for the password to gain access.

With the Masters upon us, it truly does finally feel like the golf season has really arrived! This weekend, to celebrate, we’re putting together a few experiences and offerings.

  • Inspired by the Masters’ own Par-3 Contest, on Sunday, the 11th, we’re setting up a 9-hole Par-3 course on our Back 9 (the full 18 holes will still be open for play throughout the day), which will showcase some unique hole configurations in a fun, new layout. A $25 entry fee will provide you access to the Par-3 course, a proxy game, and 10 prop bets related to various results of Sunday’s round at the Masters. Tee times can be booked HERE, or by calling the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760.  Par 3 participants can play anytime between 8am and 1pm, so that you will be done before the Masters’ final round concludes.
  • Following play, we will be inviting participants to view the final round of the Masters in the Caddyshak Bar & Grill, where the prop bets will be settled, and food and drink specials will be available.
  • The Caddyshak’s kitchen will be opening for the season on Saturday, the 10th, with full menu available. Call (715) 634-2460 to make a reservation.
  • A Masters Pool is also being run in the Pro Shop. Pick any four golfers in the field, as well as score (+ or – to par). Your three best-performing players will be used, with the score utilized to break ties. $10 entry fee. Contact the Pro Shop or stop in to sign up!  Participants need to have their picks in before the start of Masters play on Thursday.

It’s shaping up to be a fun weekend, and we hope to see you taking part in some what of what we’ve got in store!

Lastly, we wanted to remind everybody about our Spring Challenge 2-person match play event that we’re running.

Any questions or sign-ups can be directed to the Pro Shop via phone call or email (proshop@haywardgolf.com).

The Masters is one of golf’s most storied traditions, and this year at HGC, we’re looking to make some new traditions of our own. Inspired by the Masters’ own Par-3 Contest, on Sunday, April 11th, we’re going to be setting up a 9-hole Par-3 course on our scenic Back 9 (the full 18 holes will still be open for play throughout the day), which will provide the opportunity for some unique hole configurations, and we think it’s going to be a fun layout.

A $25 entry fee will provide you access to the Par-3 course, a proxy game, and 10 prop bets related to the results of Sunday’s round at the Masters.

Following play, we will be inviting participants to view the final round of the Masters in the Caddyshak Bar & Grill, where the prop bets will be settled, and food and drink specials will be available.

This should be a fantastic way to get in some golf of your own before watching the pros reach for greatness at Augusta!

Contact the Pro Shop if you are interested!

SPRING CHALLENGE MATCH PLAY

We’re also preparing a 2-person match play event for the spring season. See details below, and call the Pro Shop with any questions or to sign-up!

The weather has been cooperating to such an extent that we now feel fairly comfortable in targeting a course opening this week on Monday, March 29th, at 10:00am, walking only.  The driving range will also be opening on Monday.

Superintendent Jeff Streeter reports that conditions are good at this point.

The weather forecast for the middle of the week does not look particularly promising, but we will be open for walking play on Tuesday through Thursday if the weather allows; we plan to take tee times starting at 10 am on Friday, April 2nd, with carts available.

Feel free to call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to stay up to date, and when the time is right, you can also book a tee time online right HERE!

Also, we’re looking to find older member bag tags from 2017 and earlier, as we’re putting together a display of tags from over the years. So if any passholders have held onto their tags from some past years, and would be willing to part with them in the interest of preserving a bit of our club’s history, please let us know!

I.  Lot off of Hole #1

• 0.93 acre
• Guaranteed never to have a neighbor on your right-hand side.
• $39,900.00

II. Lot off of Hole #5

• 0.86 acre
• $34,900.00

We have already received interest in these lots, so if you’re potentially looking for a lot with a golf course view, act fast! Call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760  — or email at proshop@haywardgolf.com — for more information.

As we’re getting closer to the start of the season, we’re currently targeting an April 10th opening for the Caddyshak Bar & Grill. Depending on when the course opens, the bar might potentially be open earlier, but the kitchen will begin operating on Saturday, the 10th, as part of Masters weekend.

We’re also working on a few projects to further enhance the guest experience in the Caddyshak:

• A second pergola, overlooking the 18th green. Construction will begin as soon as the snow is gone, and this will bring total outdoor capacity to over 60 seats.

• New “Grab & Go” area, to include breakfast items, sandwiches, pizza, and more.  New warming equipment has been purchased.

• New carpeting throughout the Caddyshak facility.

We’ll continue to keep you all updated throughout the spring as these projects (and others) come to fruition!

And thank you to Shirriff Construction for the use of their scissor lift, which was utilized to install 108 acoustical sound boards in the dining room and bar area.

With the weather starting to warm up, the 2021 golf season will be here before we know it! To help get everybody back into the spring mindset, we’re once again partnering with Titleist, Callaway, and TaylorMade to offer golf ball loyalty programs you can take advantage of! We’ve been able to offer these for the past several years, and we’re glad to be able to continue to do so.

For a limited time, if you purchase 3 dozen personalized golf balls, you will receive a 4th dozen free! Specific details for each company are as follows:

Callaway — March 15th – April 30th

TaylorMade — March 15th – April 15th

Titleist — March 18th – April 18th

To take advantage of any of these promotions, or if you have any questions, contact the Pro Shop at proshop@haywardgolf.com.  Drop shipping options are available for those outside the Hayward area.

As you begin making your plans for the upcoming golf season, consider making the HGC Pro Shop your destination for suiting up and stocking up!

With a wide range of equipment and apparel available, and accounts with all major companies, we can customize orders to fit any of your needs for new clubs, shoes, shirts, balls, or just about anything a golfer could require! If currently residing out of town, orders can be drop shipped directly to your house, anywhere in the world!

We know the conventional wisdom tends to be that the internet and big box retailers offer better deals, but this is actually a misconception. At HGC, we work one-on-one with you to maximize the value of your purchases and your time. We offer special pricing for Season Passholders and other loyal customers, and also have trade-in availability.

Also, a heads-up that we will again be joining forces with several companies for loyalty golf ball offers, and the Callaway “Trade In Trade Up” promotion will be active again, as well. Be on the lookout for further information as we roll into springtime!
