We welcome new members who will participate in our tournaments on a regular basis.
Currently a majority of our members are at or near retirement age, but we encourage folks of all ages and skill levels to join us. Member handicap indexes cover the full range, from 10.0 to 44.5. If you don't have a handicap index, no problem; you'll quickly earn one by playing in our tournaments.
In addition to twenty-plus golf outings each year, we provide many opportunities to socialize: a pre-season banquet, an awards banquet to conclude the season, get-togethers during our three-day getaways and, of course, decompression libations while comparing scorecards and rounds after tournaments.
We play by the Rules of Golf, offer the opportunity play from the tees you prefer, and use the Maximum Score format (Rule 21.2) to improve speed of play and player enjoyment.
Our 2021 schedule provides an overview of our season and our contests, which include a twelve-tournament Sandbagger of the Year (SOTY) competition, Individual (IMP) and Two-Person Team (TPT) Match Play competitions and a season-ending Tournament of Champions (TOC). Members can compete in optional buy-in contests (Closest to the Pin and Skins). Our Competition Guide details our contests.
The easiest way to join the Sandbaggers Golf Club is via JOIN/RENEW page above.
