The Lawyers and Judges Golf Association has existed for over 70 years and consists of Lawyers and Judges and others related to the legal profession throughout Northern California. Members' golfing abilities range from near scratch to indexes of over 30. Both men and women are welcome.
Membership in the Association includes membership in the Northern California Golf Association and an official NCGA Index. The Association generally has outings once a month from March through November at excellent courses throughout Northern California. Some examples of recent scheduled outings are: TPC San Francisco Bay at Stonebrae., Lake Merced C.C., Contra Costa C.C., Diablo Country Club, Harding Park, Half Moon Bay, and Mira Vista C.C.
The Association also participates in NCGA individual and team events. Qualifiers play at courses such as Spyglass Hill and Poppy Hills.
Outings are generally on weekday afternoons, sometimes with lunch preceding, and sometimes hors d'oeuvres or a full dinner following the round, when prizes are announced. Socializing, a bit of libation, and joke-telling are not unheard of. Discussions usually revolve around how to cure that wicked hook, or how the new Titleist driver hits it 30 yards longer, but a few business deals or referrals have also been known to occur.
We are actively soliciting new members as many of the fine country clubs are now requiring large minimum numbers of players for our tournaments. The more the merrier. We accept non-lawyer affiliate members, such as court reporters, insurance claims people, and legal support professionals. If you are not a member or know someone who might like to be a member, please sign up on our website at www.golffusion.com/lawyersandjudges.
If you have any questions about the Association, you may call the Tournament Director, Mike Hughes, at (408) 558-7890, or Board Members, Peter Mankin, at (925) 935-0300, and Bruce Cornelius, at (925) 283-9977.
