Those of you who have played our course recently will no doubt have noticed a quite substantial amount of earth being moved around in the vicinity of holes 12 and 13. This is the first major stage of our irrigation project, requiring the excavation of a new pond that will act as the reservoir for the double-row irrigation that will be installed this season.
Jerry Elbert, a member of our Board of Directors, gives a brief overview of this initial phase below, accompanied by some aerial footage of the excavation site!
Additionally, as many of you may remember from last year, we partnered with Swing King to offer a Hole-in-One contest one our third hole. Previously, this required a daily entry in order to participate. However, this year, we have the capability to offer a Swing King Membership, where each and every time you play, you’ll have a shot at a designated prize amount. Just like last year, any and all proceeds received by Hayward Golf Club through the offering of this package will go directly towards our on-course improvement fund.
Par — $100 for the chance to win $2,500.
Birdie — $150 for the chance to win $5,000.
Eagle — $300 for the chance to win $10,000.
Whether you play 5 rounds or 500 rounds this summer, you’ll have a chance to claim some winnings on the third hole! Contact the Pro Shop to sign-up.
Also, we’ve updated our Member Directory on the Hayward Golf Club website for 2020 (and will continue to do so in the coming month). It’s a handy way for our membership to keep in touch with each other, so if you’re a member interested in having access, contact the Pro Shop for the password!
