Men’s and Women’s Clubs
Summerfield Men’s Golf Club
The first documented competition in the Men’s Golf Club was in 1975. The club is composed of between 150 to 180 members who play 9 holes on Wednesday and Friday mornings as well as various tournaments during the year. The most popular tournaments are the Chapmans for the members and their wives or another lady of choice which are held the first Monday of the month from May through October with each followed by a catered dinner in the Clubhouse. Other tournaments held by the club are two match play tournaments, the spring handicap tournament, a two man partners tournament, the club championship, a horse race and the final tournament of the year, the President’s Classic. Prizes for the tournaments come from the entry fee for each golfer and separate from yearly club does of $25.00 for non Oregon Golf Association (OGA) members and $58.00 for OGA members. The club also maintains a hole-in-one fund which rewards $100.00 for each hole-in-one recorded by a club member on the course.
The club governing board consists of a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer plus 22 chairmen of the various tournaments and activities of the club. This board meets monthly during the regular golf season from April through October which includes general club meetings June and October to regulate the daily and tournament play as well as develop the yearly budget for the Club.
New members are invited to join by contacting the club President or Treasurer as listed on the club board member list posted on the “Men’s Golf Club” bulletin board in the lounge area next to the Golf Shop in the lower level of the clubhouse. Come join the fun.
Summerfield Women’s Golf Club
Summerfield Women’s Golf is open to all residents and we host many events during the year. We play as a group every Tuesday and Thursday morning from April through the last week of October. We have a scramble the first Thursday of each month, followed by a brown bag lunch and general meeting. The club holds a variety of activities and tournaments during the year. There are luncheons, guest day, club exchanges and an annual Charity Tournament.
At the end of season play, we enjoy a closing luncheon with awards given for most birdies, chip-ins, least putts and most improved player. At this time we also install the new officers for the following year.
As a resident of Summerfield you can join the Summerfield Women’s Golf Club. The club welcomes and provides encouragement, support and camaraderie to all women golfers, both new and experienced.
Annual dues for the Summerfield Women’s Golf Club are $25.00. This fee provides you all the privileges of membership, and includes the handbook and a handicap on Scorekeeper for our Club. Should you also want to belong to the OGA handicap system, it is an additional $33.00 and is optional.
New golfers must play and post 5 rounds of 9 holes of golf in order to receive a handicap. We have fun playing golf and want you to enjoy it also. We will assign you a “Big Sister” to help you through your first year. She will see that you are properly signed up for play, introduce you to members and walk you through rules and scoring. Your “Big Sister” will be happy to help you through your journey at Summerfield.
If you are interested in joining the Women’s Golf Club, contact any officer listed on the bulletin board in the Clubhouse downstairs lobby by the Pro Shop.
We hope you will join us.
