An annual tradition, our Couples Club Championship will be held on Sunday, July 23rd, 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. Entry per couple is $35, which includes prizes, trophies, and two drink tees which are redeemable in the Caddyshak Bar for one drink each.

Roller Board Update

Our 100 square roller board (details HERE) is currently 44% full, so there’s still a chance for you to get in on the action to help support our new greens roller, which has provided terrific smoothness and improved speed on our golf course’s greens!  This is a great opportunity for members and friends of Hayward Golf Club to come together to help make this dramatic course improvement a lasting change for years to come!  Stop in the Pro Shop to sign up.

 

Just a reminder that our Wine Tasting event is taking place this coming Saturday, July 8th, out on the Caddyshak Bar & Grill’s patio and pergola area (weather permitting; if we get rain, we will move into the dining room and the bar). Guests will have the chance to sample a variety of different red and white wines, and hors d’oeuvres will be served, as well. Entry per person is $20, which will entitle you to try up to 4 wines out of the following 9 selections:

The event will run from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. We are encouraging those interested in attending to RSVP by Friday, July 7th, but we’re not going to turn away walk-ins on the 8th. Call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to sign up or to get more information.

Also, we wanted to bring our upcoming Salvation Army Golf Benefit to your attention. It will take place on Friday, July 14th, with a shotgun start at 12:00pm. The event will be a scramble format, and the proceeds this year will go to Elizabeth Home of Hope to aid their efforts in helping the homeless. The cost to enter the event is $75 per person, which includes golf, door prizes, and dinner.

For more information, contact the Pro Shop.

Above all, have a safe and happy Independence Day! Enjoy the fireworks display put on by the Hayward Civic Club tonight at 10:00pm. Prime viewing areas are available in the field behind the Primary and Intermediate Schools, and the Caddyshak Bar and patio seating area will also be open for possibly the best views of the show anywhere!

We hope you’ve all been enjoying the new roller we’ve been using on our greens! The feedback we’ve been getting has been incredibly positive about the new condition and speed of the greens.

Our 100 square board (details can be found HERE) is still filling up, being about 34% full at this point in time. Stop in the Pro Shop to help with this important course improvement and to sign up for a chance to win some big bucks.

Also, we wanted to let everyone know that the Caddyshak’s bar will be open through the evening on Tuesday, July 4th, leading up to the fireworks show at 10pm. Our patio will provide incredible views of the fireworks, so come on out! Our lot by the Caddyshak offers easy parking, as well.

Some of you may know – and others may not know – that we’ve put a lot of effort into making our patio area a beautiful place to spend some time. Whether before your round, after your round, or any time at all, the newly-updated patio and pergola seating area offers the best views of the course on the property to enjoy while having a drink with friends.

As such, to really celebrate this updated space, we’re hosting a Wine Tasting Event on Saturday, July 8th, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. We are in the process of building a new wine list for the Caddyshak Bar and Grill, and you will be given a chance to try several of the possible selections: four white wines, four red wines, and a sangria…

• Tiki Tonga Draft/House Sangria
• Rheinhessen Riesling
• Candoni Pinot Grigio
• Butterfield Station Chardonnay
• Sileni Estates Sauvignon Blanc
• Mark West Black Pinot Noir
• Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel
• Butterfield Station Cabernet Sauvignon
• Casa Smith Barbera

Price for entry will be $20 per person, which will entitle you to sample 4 of the above wines (roughly half of a standard glass per serving), and will also give you access to hors d’oeuvres, including:

• Cheeses and Meats
• Assorted Crackers
• Olives and Pickles
• Shrimp Dip
• Bacon-Wrapped Smokies Sausages

Also, our full bar will be open if you want to purchase beer, mixed drinks, or additional wine; if you’ve already sampled your 4 wines and would like to have more, we will be offering full glasses of wine at a reduced price of $3.50 per glass.

We’re suggesting that those interested in attending RSVP for the event by Friday, July 7th. Call the Caddyshak at (715) 634-2460 or the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760.

12th Tee Box

As some of you may know, we’re in the process of rebuilding a tee box on hole number 12. Progress is continuing, and our course superintendent believes it could be in use by sometime in September!  Here are a couple of pictures of the ongoing work.

A big thank you to Peter and Tracy Kooman for their efforts in spearheading this project and donating to the cause. Additional thanks to Larry Hendrickson, Bruce Christensen, Steven Broback, Greg Swiler, Barry Swiler, Larry Damico, John Seaberg, Rick Neville, John Curphey, and Derek Nelson for their generous support.

Greens Roller Fundraiser

We had the opportunity to demo a greens roller over the Memorial Day and Hayward Open weekends, and the response was very positive to the improved condition of the greens. As such, with the overwhelmingly positive reaction, we are planning to invest in a roller of our own, something which was not budgeted for in 2017 but will represent a tremendous course improvement for us, bringing increased smoothness, speed, and healthier greens to Hayward Golf Club.

We are kicking off a fundraiser that will not only allow you to support this important step for our course, but will also give you a chance to win some big bucks.

As you can see above, we’ve got a square board up in the pro shop. Each square costs $100 and will entitle you to a chance to win. We’re hosting a Packers party on September 10th for the Packers/Seahawks game, and during the game we’ll be giving away four cash payouts of $1,000, with the remainder of the entry money going towards the purchase of the greens roller.

This is the setup: each square is associated with a set of secret numbers (to be revealed later), and if your numbers correspond to the score of the game at the end of each of the four quarters, you win $1,000 (for each quarter!).  In total, this fundraiser will account for about half of the money we need for the roller, and the club will make up the difference.

It should be a really fun event and will go towards helping elevate our club to an even greater level! While we’re raising money, you will be able to experience how much better the roller makes our greens, as Greg Dobbs, the course superintendent, has negotiated extended terms allowing for the use of the roller throughout the summer.

Stop in to the Pro Shop to get your name on the board!
