The University Golf Club of Santa Clara was founded in the mid-1970's to provide Santa Clara University employees, students and alumni an informal golf club where friends and business colleagues could get together and play golf at courses in the Bay Area.
Today, the University Golf Club of Santa Clara, an NCGA Associate Club, has no formal direct connection with the University, and only about one-third of our members are graduates or employees of SCU. Guests are encouraged to attend our golf events.
Our monthly events are scheduled at a variety of Bay Area golf courses and members and guests are welcome to participate. Check out this year's schedule. At each event, club members are eligible to win prizes and compete for the "Player of the Year" award. In May of each year, we host a 2-day event at locations such as Reno, Napa, Sonoma, Sacramento, Monterey, Lake Tahoe and Paso Robles. Following our Fall golf event, we host a Club BBQ and Raffle for golf prizes which is always one of our most popular functions.
Generally our events average 20-24 players. Couples, women, and guests are welcome to participate in our golf outings. Several of the events qualify our members to play in NCGA tournaments such as the Associate Club Championship, held at Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Poppy Hills Golf Course in August.
