• Southwest Chicken Soup

Wednesday, August 5th
• Chicken Dumpling Soup and 1/2 Turkey Sandwich $9.00

We’re making excellent progress on the installation of our new double-row irrigation system. Here’s a brief video highlighting the work that has been done so far! This system will provide for an even higher standard of the excellent conditions you’ve come to expect from Hayward Golf Club.

Board of Directors Openings

Also, we’re looking for some members to step forward and be considered for filling positions on the Hayward Civic Club Board of Directors. This year there is 1 open seat, along with 2 incumbents seeking re-election.

Keep in mind that the Board meets 10 to 11 times a year, and no board member shall miss more than three meetings yearly and no more than two meetings in a row. There is a conference call-in system for those not able to be physically present.

If you are an interested member, or know a member who might be, contact the Pro Shop, or submit a short bio and resume to the Pro Shop. We are looking for candidates to apply by Friday, August 14th, in advance of the Annual Meeting on Monday, August 24th.

Brief Statement About HGC’s Mask Policy

Finally, in accordance with the masking order by Wisconsin’s governor, Hayward Golf Club is now requesting that guests and members wear masks while inside the Pro Shop and the clubhouse whenever possible (masks not required while seated for eating and drinking).

The Caddyshak’s outdoor patio will continue to be a great option for enjoying a meal, snack, or drink!

The Couples Club Championship has been moved to Sunday, August 23rd. As such, there’s still time to sign-up! Tee times will be available between 12pm and 1pm. Other pertinent details found HERE remain the same.

A couple of slots also remain open for the Hayward Civic Club Benefit this coming Sunday, August 2nd. So if you’re interested in this great event, contact the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760.  Full information can be found at THIS LINK.  Additionally, we’re also looking for 1 – 2 volunteers to help with the putting contest, act as a hole-in-one witness, and just generally help with the flow of the event to make sure everything runs efficiently!  Please contact the Pro Shop if you’re available to assist.

Finally, congratulations to our Hayward Ladies Interclub team for their victory over Spooner!

With August approaching, it’s time to start thinking about the Women’s and Men’s Club Championships! Both will be two-day events this year, and it’s going to be a full Championship Weekend, with both tournaments taking place on Saturday, August 15th, and Sunday, August 16th.

The Women’s Club Championship will be open to all female members of Hayward Golf Club, including Social Members. The entry fee is $30 per player for food, prizes, and trophy.

The Men’s Club Championship will be open to all male members of Hayward Golf Club, including Social Members. On Saturday, you can play golf with whichever other golfers you’d like. You will already be flighted, but you can build your own foursome with anybody (or have Pro Shop staff help put you into a group if you’d prefer). Pairings for Sunday will be posted on Saturday evening based on the Saturday round’s results.

We will have a Senior Division for golfers ages 62 and over with a separate Senior Club Champion. So whatever level of skill you’re at, whatever your handicap might be, or which tee box you like to play from, there will be a flight for you to be competitive in! Entry fee is $45, which includes food, prizes, and trophy.

Tee times for both events will run between 11am and 1:30pm on Saturday, and 8:30am through 11am on Sunday.

Call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to sign up for either of these terrific events!

Also, if you’ve played our course within the last couple of weeks, you will already be aware of the new GPS system that’s been installed on our fleet of golf carts; for those of you who haven’t, here’s a quick video overview of the system and some of its features!

The Caddyshak Bar & Grill is running a series of specials on select days this week:

Tuesday, July 21st
– Mashed Potatoes with Meatballs and Gravy $9.00

Wednesday, July 22nd
– Chicken Salad on a Lettuce Leaf with Fruit $9.00

Friday, July 24th
– Fish and Butterfly Shrimp with French Fries $10.00

The Caddyshak is also fully equipped to handle private parties and events (up to 100 people), including usage of our patio area. Call (715) 634-2460 if you’re looking for the right venue!

Finally, just a reminder that the Couples Club Championship — scheduled for Sunday, July 26th — still has some available openings. Full details can be found HERE. If you’re interested in joining this fun event, contact the Pro Shop!

We want to thank everybody who took part in this past weekend’s Summer Classic here at HGC!  It really has become one of our centerpiece events for the Club, and we hope all had a terrific time.

Below are the key results for the various flights, as well as the skins game.  If you are among this select group, you can stop in the Pro Shop (or contact us there) to receive your prizes.  Congratulations to everyone!


An annual tradition, our Couples Club Championship will be held on Sunday, July 26th, with tee times starting at 12:00pm. Open to the membership, this is a great event for couples to have a fun round of golf together on the course. The Championship will be using the notorious Chapman alternate shot format to provide a little bit of extra excitement!

Entry per couple is $35, which includes prizes, trophies, and two drink tees which will be redeemable in the Caddyshak for one drink each.

Last year’s champs John & Ann Smereczniak (Net) and Quentin & Liz Johnson (Gross) will be looking to defend their titles!

Call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to sign up!

Civic Club Benefit Reminder

We again wanted to bring the Civic Club Benefit golf tournament — on Sunday, August 2nd — to everybody’s attention. Just recently, the fruits of last year’s event arrived at HGC in the form of the new GPS system for our golf carts, and this year’s proceeds will similarly go towards an assortment of on-course/facility improvement projects in 2021.

This is a great event to help give back to the Club and put it in a position to continue to deliver an excellent experience for members and guests in years to come!  A variety of prizes will also be on the line to win, including a raffle for a FREE MEMBERSHIP in 2021 that every participant in the event will be part of!

Additional details are available HERE and in the flyer below.

Sign up with the Pro Shop!

The installation of our new double-row irrigation system is currently ahead of schedule, with a projected 4 to 5 weeks remaining for the project. In its current phase, we’re in the process of going hole-by-hole to finish the installation.

A side effect of this is that approximately every two days, one of our 18 holes will be closed for this installation. In order to continue to provide an 18-hole experience during this process, we’ve turned Hole 15 — usually a Par 5 — into two separate, temporary holes: a 123-yard Par 3 and a 315-yard Par 4. During weekends, the course will revert back to its regular set-up.

Assuming weather cooperates, we should be completely back to our normal 18-hole configuration by mid August!

• TaylorMade M6 Driver Regular Flex — $229.99 (normally $249.99)
• TaylorMade M5 3-Wood Stiff Flex — $229.99 (normally $249.99)
• TaylorMade M6 3-Wood Regular Flex — $159.99 (normally $179.99)
• TaylorMade M6 3 Hybrid Stiff Flex — $129.99 (normally $149.99)
• Titleist 917F 3-Wood Stiff Flex — $89.99

Stop in the Pro Shop before they’re gone, or contact us with any questions!

The Caddyshak is continuing to offer breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 12pm. Dine inside or outside on our beautiful patio! The breakfast menu can be found HERE.

Call (715) 634-2460 for more information or to make a reservation!

The Civic Club Benefit is back again. The success of last year’s tournament allowed us to complete several improvement projects, including one that is in the process of being installed just this week — a GPS system on our golf cart fleet (more details to come soon).

The proceeds for this year’s Civic Club Benefit (Major Sponsor: Don Milne) will go directly to our on-course improvement fund.  The event will be held on Sunday, August 2nd.

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

There will also be a Calcutta, providing an opportunity to be a winner even if you’re not on the winning team.

11:00 Registration & Calcutta
12:30 Shotgun Start: First 108 Players
A-B-C Teams Assigned

Cost: $75 per person
