Upcoming Excitement!

As the Winter season (hopefully!) starts to wind down, we are still keeping busy in the Caddyshak Bar & Grill with our Thursday cribbage league. We will continue to host the league on the 8th and the 15th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, and we will culminate the league season with a Grand Finale on Thursday, the 22nd, at 6:00pm. The format will be the same (two-person teams picked by a random draw), with prize money for the top teams and high hand. We are looking for a big group for this finale, and we are also asking for those interested to sign up, either at the regular league days on the 8th and 15th, or by responding via email at info@haywardgolf.com.

We are also excited to announce our 1st Annual St. Patrick’s Day Cornhole Tournament on Saturday, March 17th!

Format: 2 person teams. Space is limited to the first 24 teams.  Blind draw preliminary rounds followed by playoff and championship rounds.

Cost $ 20 dollars per player. Entry includes minimum of 3 games, snacks, and a chance at prize money. Full Cash bar will be available. Team names, uniforms and spectators are encouraged.

This event is open to the general public!

Cribbage League – Beginning Thursday, January 4th!

We are excited to officially provide some details about our upcoming cribbage league, which will be held in the restaurant on Thursdays, starting January 4th. The 4th will be an “open play” day where we will get together to discuss details about how the league will run, with some informal cribbage games taking place to get everyone warmed up!  Official league play will begin on January 11th.

On the 4th, the Caddyshak Bar & Grill will be open from 2:00pm – 7:00pm. For everyone with any interest in the cribbage league, please join us on the 4th to discuss pairings and how the league will operate.

When league play officially begins on January 11th, it will be a two-person league, running for eight weeks, with a cumulative scoring system determining standings. More information will be available on the 4th.

If you know of anybody you think might be interested, but is outside the reach of our emails, please feel free to let them know about this league. It is open to anybody.

We look forward to seeing all our fellow cribbage fans!


Also, we want to thank everybody for helping to make our Indoor Cornhole Championship a huge success! Turnout was high, and everybody had a terrific time.

Congratulations to the champs, Jay Kozlowski and Jason Leu! Also in the money were Rollie Lemke and Marc Stauffer in second place! Third place was held down by Josh Ramette and Doug Muchow, while Josh and Ann Hanson took home the fourth place prize!

Here are a few pictures of the festivities.

Thank You For A Great Year!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Hayward Golf Club staff, and Caddyshak Bar & Grill staff, thank you for a great season! While the weather may not have always cooperated as fully as we might have liked, this season saw the golf course conditions as good as they’ve ever been (especially later into the year), and we were also able to make a pair of significant course upgrades that will provide benefits for years to come: the new tee box on Hole 12 and the new greens roller.

So again, thank you! We can’t wait to see you all again starting next spring!
