About Us

The purpose of the San Francisco Chinese Golf Club is to further the game of golf, to promote good fellowship and to foster friendship among its members. Membership is opened to men and women who enjoy the game of golf and can find sponsorship from two current members. SFCGC belongs to the Northern California Golf Association and the Federation of Chinese Golf Clubs. The club began sometime in the late 1920's when several avid golfers played together periodically at Lincoln Park Golf Course. As the group grew, tournaments were organized. The first minutes of the then Chinese Golfers Association of America dated from 1938. Tournaments were suspended during World War II. When the Club was reactivated in 1950, new By-Laws were adopted and CGAA became known and incorporated as the San Francisco Chinese Golf Club. The club does not have a home course; it schedules monthly tournaments on public courses within the Bay Area. Most of the tournaments falls on Sunday; however, there are few Monday and Saturday ones.

Once a year, usually in the Fall, there is a two-day (not necessarily consecutive) tournament to determine the Club Champions. Occasionally, the Club sponsors a Weekend Invitational. Players with valid indexes are invited to compete. We have had participants come from as far as Asia and Europe. Social functions include a Chinese New Year Dinner and an Annual Awards Dinner. After tournaments there are informal get-togethers. For anyone who wishes to know more about the Club we refer you to the 60th Anniversary History Book compiled by our life member, Dr. Ben Yuke (1919-2007).
