What we're about

Stroke of Luck Golf Group is an INTERMEDIATE, FUN GOLF group with some FUN AND FRIENDLY COMPETITIONS!

We are an official SCGA member club. Members may establish their SCGA indexes thru our group (for an additional fee) or may get them thru other SCGA qualified clubs. We do not require members to have an SCGA handicap but we encourage it to allow our members the most chances to win "net" competitions for trophies and prizes. Most of our members DO have SCGA indexes.

Our competitions include a monthly qualifier for our club championship that is held each fall. We also host three - 2 day competitions (partner eclectic, individual eclectic and team cup event) which are hosted at Encinitas Ranch (alternating with another course), Morgan Run and Ram's Hill. Each of our regular events that are not monthly qualifiers will also have some fun game/competition for prizes that will be based on gross and net scores.

We host 2 - 3 events per month at golf courses around the San Diego, Orange County, Temecula and Palm Springs areas.

We do an annual trip to La Quinta Resort which includes a day of 2 person match play and 2 days of fun golf with some type of competition.

We have been to Southern Ireland, Scotland (including St. Andrews), Myrtle Beach and Northern Ireland with many more trips to come!

The $50 annual membership fee, pays for the TROPHIES, MONEY AWARDS AND PRIZES at our events. You will make this fee back in your first round or two of golf with the group as we get discounts of $35 to $150 on the rounds we play.

The annual membership fee must be paid at least 7 days prior to your first event or within 30 days of joining. If not paid by this time, we will assume you have changed your mind and may gently remove you from the group. You are welcome back at any time.

Once your membership is approved we will send you an Intuit Invoice to pay the membership dues. We only accept Intuit payments.

We have a strict group policy for late cancellations and no-shows for our events. You may be charged if you cancel after the RSVP deadline or do not show up for an event. This enables us to bring the exact number of players we contract for to the course and keeps our rates for golf much lower than other groups.

Please read the entire GROUP POLICY on the Discussion Board BEFORE you RSVP for any events.

As an intermediate level golf group, we expect all players will have a good pace of play, keep up with the group in front of them, adhere to golf etiquette and pick-up at double par. Trash talking however is also encouraged. :-)

We have been hosting over golf events for nearly years and are approaching 400 EVENTS!!!

We have been organizing golf events of 4 to 84 players at the nicer courses in the San Diego Area, Temecula, Palm Springs, Myrtle Beach, Ireland and even Scotland. Myself and the 7 other organizers have a reputation for hosting excellent golf events at a HUGE variety of courses that always include a pretty fun 19th hole and prizes and raffles!!!

We focus on nicer courses in the San Diego and surrounding area at substantially DISCOUNTED rates. We have such a good reputation with courses that the COURSES OFTEN CONTACT US TO BOOK AND IF THE PRICE/PACKAGE ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH WE DON'T GO!!! The courses we will play will include but not be limited to: The Crossings, Twin Oaks, The Legends, Maderas, The Grand Del Mar, Coronado, Barona, La Quinta (Palm Springs), La Costa, Encinitas Ranch, Steele Canyon, Aviara, Marine Memorial, Talega, El Camino Country Club, Shadowridge, Lomas Sante Fe Country Club, Golf Club of California, Arrowood and Pechanga.

Aviara is in the HOUSE!

Aviara Golf Course

Aviara is in the HOUSE! Let's get back to NORMAL and play some golf! The first tee is at 11:42 AM. Our usual half price rate is $120. We can accommodate up to 28 players. Keep on SMILING! The best therapy is to LAUGH!!! Yes even if it means at your golfing playing partners or yourself! Let's do this! You will be glad to know that Aviara is safer than a grocery store! Not only will you be spaced further apart from other people, but upon arrival, you will be greeted by a friendly staff member in the parking lot to take your temperature! How about that! Please continue to practice social distancing (forced isolation) and wearing facial coverings around the clubhouse, putting green and driving range. You are welcome to lower your facial covering while on course (to sneak a peak at who you are playing with and drink your beer) but please keep it around your neck so you can easily put it on when you encounter another golfer or a member of our staff. Walking will be allowed for the time being. Single-rider carts are permitted for all guests based on availability. Please send me an email if you have an essential need for a cart...please note you do not need to be an essential worker to have an essential need for a cart. All golfers are essential. Members of the same household can share a cart. Carts are washed and sanitized before each round. Bag attendants will not be able to handle your bag (nor do they want to) but you are welcome to take your golf cart in the parking lot like normal. Guests will be allowed 7 days prior if we have not filled all spots. The RSVP will close on June 4th at 5 pm. After this time the late cancellation and no-show policy apply. If you wish to select your pairing this must be emailed to the event host by then. We will do a mini-social distance 19th for up to 9 people at a time (no not 10) by the course with beverages provided by Stroke of Luck (beer, wine, soft drinks). Bring a lawn chair and keep your driver out to be sure no one comes within 6 feet of you. If they do, wack em.

Ireland 2021

Dublin Airport

Stroke of Luck is going to Ireland in 2021! The dates are set for May 22nd thru June 3rd 2021. The budget will be similar to past trips. For the 25 of you that went previously in 2014 (and also 8 in 2017) and want revenge; you now have that opportunity. It will be a similar structure to the previous trips with a package that is inclusive with hotel, taxes, tips, breakfast each day, touring per the itinerary and a private driver guide throughout the journey. This trip will feature Ireland’s Hidden Gem Golf courses – Five golf courses that the typical Ireland golf trip will rarely include as well as 2 “Majors” including the # 1 Golf Course in the WORLD – Royal County Down!!! I want to provide full disclosure though, our warm-up round is not a Links (parkland course) and is included to break you in to the torture they call the “love grass” as gently as possible. We will be quite pampered with several great and unique properties for our accommodation including Lough Eske Castle and the Slieve Donard and others with brilliant spas/leisure centers. Accommodations were selected with a focus on the most freedom/free time which includes easy access (walking from your hotel room) to the town, food, shopping and night life. We will visit some historic sites including the most traditional Irish town in the world – Clifden (they still speak Gaelic as a first language here) in addition to visiting Donegal Castle, Connemara National Park and the Cliffs of Mohr. Oh, I am not done yet! Each night (New Castle, Donegal, Westport and Galway) we will have opportunity to check out live music called “sessions” and hit every “Murphy’s” pub we can find should you be so inclined 😊. The Irish people are friendly and fun and the traditional and chef inspired cuisine will complete the experience. A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to hold a spot. Pricing and further details on the trip will be available at the information meetings in April. If you have additional questions please send me an email.
