Anytime is a good time for a round of golf!
The Walnut Creek Men’s Golf Club has been active at Boundary Oak Golf Course since it was opened almost 40 years ago.
The club is registered with the Northern California Golf Association and provides all members access to the handicap (Ghin system); NCGA tournament play and privileges; and local club meetings and tournament events throughout the year.
The club prides itself on being friendly, giving all members the opportunity to make new friends that also enjoy playing golf.
There are currently 504 members and the club is looking forward to growing its membership in the coming season. Memberships are available for resident and non-resident Men, Women, and Juniors with both Regular and Associate divisions.
The goal of the WCMGC is to provide local tournament events for players at all levels. 22 – 25 tournaments are played annually at Boundary Oak including: Club Championship, Individual and Team Match Play with (3) flights for play at all levels. Scratch and handicap tournaments, weekly “skins” games, and fun scramble events fill the club’s calendar. Almost all tournaments are conducted on weekend mornings to accommodate the working golfer, as well as tee times on early Mon and Wed mornings for weekday play.
In 2008 the club adopted the new POPE of the slope handicap system to ensure fairness of play in handicap flights. It is the goal of the club’s leadership that golf should be both competitive and fun for all members.
Each February, the club sends up to 60 players to participate in an NCGA qualifying event at Poppy Hills in Pebble Beach. The 60 members representing the WCMGC are tournament winners and those with a cumulative number of points that rank them in the top 60 of the club.
The WCMGC has an elected BOD with each member serving a three-year term. The BOD meets monthly to plan events, manage the budget, and ensure competitions are played fairly.
The club has its own website where members can sign up for events and communicate with other members. The club has general meetings the first Wednesday of each month, which is held at the Grille at the golf course. During daylight savings months, meetings are preceded by chipping/putting, “closest to the hole”, and sand trap competitions. Winter meetings include speakers related to rules and greens from the NCGA as well as other local golf businesses.
Additionally, the club provides a scholarship in memory of well-known instructor Mike Jordan, for a Junior Golfer each year to participate in one of the annual summer camps offered at Boundary. Several members also provide assistance to The First Tee and USGA/LPGA Girls Programs also established at the golf course. The club also supports the Walnut Creek Fountain for Youth event each year.
