Play championship venues with Silver Club Golfing Society and Club Champion
You spent the winter upgrading your golf gear for 2019—now it's time to test your game as a special guest of a golfing society that offers stimulating competition and camaraderie. Club Champion is proud to present the Silver Club Golfing Society's (SCGS) One-Day tournament series, being played throughout the year at championship venues like Inverness and Quaker Ridge. Founded by Steve Scott, former #1 world amateur and runner-up to Tiger at the 1996 US Amateur, the SCGS is pleased to open the one-day tournaments to Club Champion customers and guests, so long as they sport a sub-8 handicap index. The SCGS mission is to cultivate a thriving golf society that signifies the very best in the game, where the competition is compelling, the camaraderie vibrant and the experience memorable.
SCGS is an invitation-only, national golf society for people who enjoy playing competitive golf at world-class venues. They established the SCGS for passionate golfers who want to test their skills in a serious and organized tournament format. SCGS events will challenge your game, stimulate your competitive drive and connect you with like-minded golfers who share the bond the game of golf delivers. SCGS members are part of a golfing community that will blend a competitive spirit with the rich history and traditions of the game.

A USGA Handicap Index is required for participation in SCGS events. Flights are determined by dividing registered fields, but a sample division is below:
Jones Division - Plus handicap to 0.5 Evans Division - 0.6 to 2.9 Ouimet Division - 3.0 to 5.4 Travis Division - 5.5 to 7.9
Bobby Jones once stated, “There is golf, and then there is tournament golf.” SCGS embodies his appreciation and caters to players who similarly recognize this difference. Information about the Society One-Days and SCGS membership is available at https://silverclubgolfingsociety.com/events.
