The DeLaveaga Golf Club's purpose is to provide its members with affiliations with the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) and the United States Golf Association, which provide a handicap to enter tournaments and events sponsored by these associations. Additionally, the club will conduct tournaments (about one a month) with a variety of formats to pique the interest of members of the club. Handicaps are used in these tournaments so golfers of all abilities may have fun competing. We encourage members to participate and enjoy the commradarie of other members of the club. The club sponsors some events to encourage getting to know others in the club, e.g. Tuesday Games during the spring and summer, Tuesday BBQ a few times during the summer, and using formats that spur participants to hang out afterward and engage in conversation and telling of stories about their experiences during the tournament.
