Inglewood Golf Club has a number of great golfing events throughout the year. All of our golfing events provide our members with some friendly competition to test their skills while providing an opportunity to meet new members.
March - Foul Weather Classic
This is the major kick-off event of the Men’s 2017 golf calendar year. The Foul Weather Classic is played rain or shine, so prepare for the worst, yet let’s hope for the best! Competition is either a random draw team ‘Shamble’ or ‘Scramble’, great formats for the opening to everyone’s tournament season. Buffet lunch after the round.
April - July - Senior Team Matches
Inglewood Seniors play a series of home-and-away matches with several local private clubs. Each team plays once at home and once away in a combined point’s match play team format. Matches are once a month beginning in April and included the following opponents in 2012: Everett, Sand Point, Bellingham and Glendale. All members over the age of fifty are eligible to play these highly spirited matches.
April - Men’s Masters Tournament
Play Inglewood with the pins tucked in some precarious spots in this Inglewood Masters tradition. This competition allows you to create your own team or let the Golf Shop assist you in finding a team. A Stableford Points Team format will highlight the foursome game, along with individual overall Low Gross, and Divisional Low Nets. Our annual “Pick a Partner” from the Master’s field adds excitement to the viewing of Augusta’s final round – as we add your Saturday “net score” to your favorite player’s Sunday score from Augusta. Buffet lunch and awards following the round.
April - August - Men’s Two Man Best Ball
Another favorite on the Men’s golf calendar. Exciting team matches are the format of this event. Players will make their own teams or have the Golf Shop help find a partner. Sign up quickly, as space is limited to the first (64) two man teams to return a completed entry form to the Golf Shop. Players compete at 90% handicaps with matches figured off of the low player, who plays from scratch.
May - August - Men’s Captain’s Cup
This is a head to head individual gross or handicap match play competition. Gross flight is played at scratch; Handicap flight uses 100% of individual handicaps with strokes taken where they fall. If you haven’t played much match play, this is your chance! Enjoy the game in one of its oldest competitive formats.
May - September - Couples Twilight Golf & Dinner Nine holes
If casual, stress free golf with your fellow members or guests is what you desire, and then Twilight Golf & Dinner events are just right for you!

Members are allowed to invite up to five guests to play on their six-some team. Social members welcome.
