Welcome to the Sunol Valley Men's Golf Club!

 

About the Club

The Sunol Valley Men's Golf Club originated at Sunol Valley Golf Course in 1969.  Upon closing of the golf course in December of 2015, the club transitioned to an NCGA Associate Club in January 2016.  

 

As an Associate Club, the club now holds one tournament each month (usually on Saturday mornings), January thru December highlighted by its two-day Club Championship (Sat & Sun event) in November. In 2017, the club introduced its inaugural Match Play Championship. In 2021, the final match was held at the Half Moon Bay Ocean Course. In an effort to better serve its members surrounding Sunol and greater bay area, the club selects three to six golf courses that are in rotation throughout its annual schedule; for the 2022 season those courses are Poplar Creek in the East Bay, Callippe Preserve, Blue Rock Springs, Boundary Oak and San Ramon in North Bay/Tri-Valley and Baylands and Sunnyvale golf courses in the South Bay. A special event date is added each year held at an "upscale" course; in 2021, that location was Half Moon Bay Ocean Course is run in conjunction with the club's Match Play Finals. The 2022 location is TBD.

 

Within its monthly tournaments, the club holds three NCGA Associate Club qualifying events, closest-to-the-pin competitions, and runs an optional handicapped and scratch skins game which are split into two divisions each (A and B divisions) based on handicap. The club is broken down into four player flights. In order to enable players to compete against other players of similar abilities, these member flights are split equally based on NCGA handicap index.  The club holds a year-long Points Championship by flight and a year-long Club Championship qualifying by flight, culminating in a two-day match play event to determine a club champion! The club has also added in an annual Hole-in-One pot that is "winner take all!"  If there are no Hole-in-One’s during the year, the pot splits 60/40 between the two closest-to-the-pin winners throughout the year! In addition, the club has an optional match play competition held over an eight-month period.
