The 9-Hole Group plays every Wednesday morning except holidays at various golf courses in the area. Every month we play Buchanan Fields and Diablo Hills. The first tee time at these courses is 10:00am. This year we have added Rossmoor and Brentwood. We will be playing Rossmoor 4 times; Brentwood on the 5th Wednesday of the month. Our Rossmoor tee times start between 12:00 and 1:00pm. Golfers of all levels are welcome at all of these events.

Championships: The 9-Hole Group awards two Championships each year: the 9-Hole Flight Champion and the Annual 9-Hole Tournament Champion. The 9-Hole Flight Champion is the golfer with the highest point total for the year. Points are awarded to the first, second and third place finishers at each of the 9-hole events. The point system is the same used by the 18-Hole Club . Each December we hold a 3 round 9-Hole Golf Tournament. The Champion is the golfer with the lowest net total for 2 rounds.
9-Hole Group Rules:
All scoring at 9-hole events is on a net basis. An NCGA index is not required. Darrell McClaughry computes a 9-hole index for each golfer based on SIR 9-hole scores. If you have an NCGA index, you may use your NCGA index at 9-hole events.
At each event, golf balls are awarded to the 3 golfers on the green and closest to the pin on one designated par 3. Three balls to the golfer closest to the pin, two for second closest and one for third. No mulligan’s for the closest to the pin awards.
The Fast Play Guidelines, Courtesy Guidelines and Rules documented in this website also apply to the 9-Hole Group.
There is a 9-hole “hole-in-one pot”. Fee is $5. When an investor makes a hole-in-one at one of our 9-hole outings they will win the pot, and we will start collecting for a new one.
