SIR Branch 51 has an active golf league. We play mostly local courses once a week on Wednesday (except for the first Wednesday of the month which is the monthly luncheon, in which case we play golf on Tuesday).
The courses we currently play include Crystal Springs (Burlingame), Poplar Creek (San Mateo), Sunnyvale Municipal, Shoreline (Mountain View), Santa Clara Municipal, Los Lagos (San Jose), Spring Valley (Milpitas) and Sunol (Pleasanton). We also travel a couple times a year to Poppy Hills (Carmel) and/or Seascape (Aptos).
There are approximately 12-24 golfers on any given outing and everyone’s scores are adjusted based on their handicap.
Golf handicaps are maintained through the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA). The Branch 51 golfing committee submits the weekly scores to NCGA and also handles the payment of the annual membership fee to NCGA, NCGA membership is required.
