As August arrives, it’s time to turn our attention to our Women’s and Men’s Club Championships!

The Women’s Club are first up, holding their Championship on two consecutive Wednesdays, the 7th and 14th of August. Open to all female members at Hayward Golf Club, including Social members, the cost is $30 per player for food, prizes, and trophy. It’s a great event every year, and we’re looking to make it even greater!

The Men’s Club with follow with their Championship, which will take place over two days – Saturday, August 17th & Sunday, August 18th – and which will be open to all male members of Hayward Golf Club, including Social members.

On that 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). Tee times will run from 11:30am to 1:30pm, with dinner to follow play on Saturday evening. During dinner, we will reveal the pairings and tee times for Sunday’s second round, which will run between 9:00am and 11:00am.

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 dinner, prizes, trophy, and a $10,000 Hole-in-One shot.

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

Also, here’s a quick update on our course improvement initiatives — our fundraising campaign has been successful this year, and one of the results of that money is a project to rebuild the Men’s White Tee box on Hole #13. This is expected to take three to four weeks to complete, after which we will have a new box which golfers can utilize.

Finally, we want to congratulate our Couples Club Champions, Quentin & Liz Johnson (gross) and John & Ann Smereczniak (net)!
