The SCGA policy on non-member requests to participate in a Member Outings:

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.

PALOS VERDES GOLF CLUB:

The course at Palos Verdes Golf Club is a perfect example of architects George Thomas and William Bell’s genius. While not long in length at 6219 yards, their use of the natural terrain, barrancas, creeks, and hills while taking into account prevailing westerly ocean breezes combined with small greens, extensive bunkering, narrow fairways with strategically designed landing areas, presents a challenge for golfers of all levels. Members have taken great care in preserving the original design and routing of this masterpiece. The front nine is known as a “perfect nine” in that there are no two consecutive holes of the same par. Thirteen of the original eighteen holes had ocean views (a Thomas hallmark). The fourth hole, a 213 yd. par 3, is framed by snow-capped Mt. Baldy during the winter season. The views make playing this gem a memorable experience. With four sets of tees it is likewise enjoyable and challenging for players of all abilities. Fore magazine recently referred to it as “the hidden gem” in Southern California.

 

The golf course was designed in 1924 by the renowned team of Thomas and Bell who went on to design Riviera CC, Bel Air CC, Los Angeles CC North Course and the course at Ojai Valley Inn. It is a regulation 18 hole par 71 golf course and is rated 71.3 from the black tees and 70.4 from the blue tees. Fairways and rough are Kikuyu grass. Greens firm and fast, are composed of bent and poa annua grasses. The course is a classic example of Thomas / Bell designs of the1920’s with extensive use of natural hazards. The premium is on accuracy rather than length.
