Make Friends for Life

Couples Golf



Chairman: Paul Derby
Couples Golf Activity Description

SIR Couples Golf is open to all SIR members and their guests.  Any ‘two some’ may be considered a “couple” and we encourage all interested members to contact our chairperson, and/or visit our SIR Couples Golf webpage:  It is not necessary to have a handicap to play with our group.

Our games are played on the 2nd Thursday of each month usually at Diablo Hills Golf Course at 10:00AM.  Unless otherwise noted on the website or signup page, the usual golf format is individual play; however, we often vary the format with games such as Scramble, Best Ball, 3 Club, etc.  The game format is determined by the monthly Marshal, which rotate and are assigned at the beginning of the year.

Our objective is to have fun, meet with old and new friends and enjoy a meal together usually at the Greenery Restaurant at the Diablo Hills Golf Course. You may contact any participating member if you have questions or concerns or need additional information.  We look forward to welcoming new members, and no matter what the score– we surely do have fun!!  A nicer group of golfers could not be found!!  (THIS IS A TEST EDIT BY GORDON)
