I am a member of the following NGCA Associate Clubs: Cherry Chase Golf Club – A Men’s club that holds Tournaments every month from Jan – through Oct. from Barry’s description: If you enjoy competitive tournament golf with a great group of guys, this is your club. I’ll post the yearly schedule in a followup post.
Club History – some of the older members played at the Golf Course which was located in Sunnyvale, near Knickerbocker & El Camino. The course was plowed under in favor of homesites, but the members continued to use the name and the club lives on. Thanks to Flicker I found this old advertisement dating to the 60’s: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14696209@N02/3879041470/
E Club NorthBay – An NCGA “Virtual Club” that plays sanctioned tournaments and holds a 2-day Stroke Play Championship at the end of the year. This is a great way to play different courses with some very nice and good players. If you’re looking to establish a handicap, i can suggest this way to do so. I’ve been a member of E-Club for the past 5 years.
E-Club Southbay – Another NCGA “Virtual club” that has tourneys a little closer to home.
Golf Channel Am Tour / Bay Area Tour –
— 2013 Schedule / My Flight (Sr. Sarazen) Results
— 2014 Schedule / My Flight (Sr. Sarazan) Results
– This is a competitive format league that consists of tours across the US, and where each golfer is placed in a flight and then you play scratch to determine a winner of each flight, no handicaps are used other than to place you in the initial flighting. Joined in April of 2013 and have played in 6 events this year. Great courses, and the tour treats you like a pro. Flight winners can qualify for Nationals, held this year at PGA West in La Quinta, CA. Contact Dan Cacho (707.567.7700) if you’d like to play some golf with really good players. Use me as a reference and I get a box of Srixon Z-Star XV Tour level golf balls.
