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: 

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 approach.

 

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 game.

 

"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 Doctor".

 

The incredible Santaluz Golf Course is sure to continue the success of other award winning golf courses designed or remodeled by Rees Jones:

 

Quaker Ridge Golf Club - Scarsdale, NY

Baltusrol Golf Club, Lower Course - Springfield, NJ

Congressional Country Club, Blue Course - Bethesda, MD

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 the 2008 US Open.
