Northgate’s 24-hole golf course is a challenging venue for friendly and social competitions for all levels of golfers. Designed to appeal to high and low handicap golfers, Northgate’s golf calendar features MGA (Men’s Golf Association), LGA (Ladies’ Golf Association) and SGA (Senior Golf Association) competitive tournaments throughout the year. Rounding out the club’s golfing scene are mixed social golfing events and just plain golf with family, friends, and guests.
The Club’s Golf Professional staff actively supports and encourages Junior Golf play. With a wide variety of activities including Junior summer camps and Adult-Junior tournaments, there are plenty of activities to teach our children good sportsmanship and respect for rules and etiquette. Many of our Juniors have achieved competitive success through their golfing experiences at Northgate resulting in various awards and scholarships.
When the men and ladies of Northgate are not competing within their golf associations, Northgate’s golf Pros keep our golfers active. With holiday tournaments held on the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving, husbands, wives and children all compete in relaxed sociability. Following these holiday tournaments, lunch buffets are served while the Pros tally the scores. A low key and hugely popular regular golf event that was organized to bring golfers together for early afternoon golf is the Friday Dog Fight. This event was requested by members some years ago who wanted to establish a group of golfers to play in an ongoing weekly event.
For couples wanting to enjoy relaxed sociability and low key competition Northgate has organized once a month Couples’ golf.
For the player that likes to work on their game, numerous options abound. No matter which nine you start on, you will find a practice putting green. In addition, we have our largest putting green on the front side of the clubhouse about midway from our golf cart staging area and the #1 tee boxes for our Bridges and Creek courses. No excuses for not getting in a short practice session before teeing off. Our driving range is adjacent to our #1 Bunkers tee boxes and features multiple targets and a sand bunker practice area.
