The SCGA policy on
non-member requests to participate in a Member Outings:
If SCGA Members would like to bring a non-SCGA Member,
they will be permitted to do so only if there is room for the non-member after
the entry closing date. If there is room in the event for the non-member
they will be permitted to play at an additional $15 charge. If the site is
at capacity, non-members will not be permitted.
Member Outings allow SCGA members to participate in SCGA organized
non-competitive golf outings. Member Outings focus on increasing the exposure
of the SCGA to more golfers, who may not necessarily participate in SCGA Championship
events. The SCGA would like Member Outings to be an opportunity for golfers of
all skill ranges to enjoy a fun-filled day of golf with friends at an SCGA
member golf course that they may not normally have the chance to play.
Events are open to all members (men and women) of all skill levels, who want to
participate in no-pressure golf at a premier course. No Handicap Index
required. Bring a group of friends or join us as a single and we’ll pair you
with some future friends.
Please note that the each Member Outing will have a dress code in
effect that all participants must adhere to. This may include the prohibition
of cargo shorts, cargo pants and denim. The dress code will be emailed to each
participant with the pairings.

THE SANTALUZ CLUB:
The Santaluz Golf Course appeals to the
artist, adventurer, and nature-lover that hides inside every passionate golfer.
At the center of Santaluz is the Rees
Jones-designed, 300-acre Santaluz Golf Course, a championship course crafted in
accordance with the contours of the land and designed to blend challenge with
beauty in a setting unlike any other. The course is highlighted by vistas and
panoramic views, and framed by an award-winning native landscape. Rees Jones
designed the course with the intention of giving the golfer a concept as he
stands over the ball. To achieve this, he elevated tees when possible, graded
fairways and added bunkers, pockets and berms or mounds. He used naturally
appearing features to help contain slightly errant shots and provide a variety
of approach shots.
The site has a number of "signature
holes" all diverse and memorable in their own way from which a golfer can
watch his ball against a variety of contrasts. Jones worked closely with the
landscape architecture firm Wimmer Yamada and Caughey to create a landscaping
plan that complements the fairways and greens with a natural minimalist
Architect: Rees Jones
Since entering the field of golf course
architecture in 1964, Rees Jones has made his mark on more than 100 golf
courses, many of which are widely recognized to be among the very best in the
"If I were to summarize my philosophy
for golf course design, it would be this: To create an environment for the game
of golf that is challenging, fair, and aesthetically pleasing. I would rather
create a natural, classic course that blends with its surroundings than a
course full of unnecessary gimmicks which discourage the average golfer."
~ Rees Jones
In 1974, he established Rees Jones, Inc., a
golf course design firm with offices in his hometown of Montclair, NJ. In 1995,
Golf World magazine honored Rees by selecting him as Architect of the Year.
Golf Digest has consistently included Rees on its select list of the five top
present-day golf course architects and dubbed him as the "US Open
The incredible Santaluz Golf Course is sure

remodeled by Rees Jones:

Baltusrol Golf Club, Lower Course -
Congressional Country Club, Blue Course -
East Lake Golf Club - Atlanta, GA
Ocean Forest Golf Club - Sea Island, GA
The Santaluz Course also reflects the design
talents of Greg Muirhead, a lead designer with Rees Jones, Inc. In addition to
The Santaluz Club course, Muirhead has designed or remodeled courses throughout
the country, including the Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego home of the
past Buick Invitational and current Farmer's Insurance annual Tournament and
