Let's get together for a better life post-divorce, separation, or loss of a spouse. We know how hard life can be during and after such life changing experience for us and our kids. We know it’s not easy to feel this pain and grief for those who didn't travel this path and not even our close family/friends. We will organize events that will help us support each other. If you have kids, we know how important it must be for you to support them. If you do not have kids, you are probably lonely and can find friends here. It's a new beginning to a beautiful life.
We host dinners, movies, hiking, clubbing, dancing, singing, picnics, kids, and cultural events. If you would like to see any events of your interest, please share your ideas with the organizers. You are also welcome to host any events you like. We encourage and appreciate the initiative to keep the group engaged and energized.

Northern California Golf Club
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GOLF CLUB
We are a social golf meetup group, which offers its members an option to join our very own NCGA Associate Club by the same name: Northern California Golf Club. To register, here is the link:
If you click on the above link, you'll see a green "Join This Club" button with a yellow star on it.
You are welcome to join us if you are an Intermediate+ golfer. Here are some expectations:
- Familiarity with basic rules of golf and golf etiquette, particularly the practice of honoring a good pace of play;
- Respect for the game and our members;
- Adherence to our policies, including showing up for events on time or earlier if requested.
Whether you participate in our golf outings or our non-golf social events, you are responsible for any damages or injuries you cause to property or other persons. You are participating at NCGC events at your own risk, and neither the Organizer nor the Event Organizers will be liable for damages or injuries caused by any of our members during our meetups or travel to and from our meetups. NCGC is also not liable for any injuries inflicted upon it members or damages done to members' properties or loss of properties (including golf equipment, transportation, etc.) during events and travel to and from our meetups.
Also, unless you are already a member of our Beginners group, you must use your real name or initials and a recent photo of yourself when signing up. If you are not comfortable with this policy or any of our other policies, this is not the group for you.
OUR GOALS AND ACTIVITIES
Let’s play our part in promoting and practicing the industry’s goal of finishing a round in about 4.5 hours.
For over two years, we have been providing exceptional golf experience to players of all ages, and our group keeps getting better and better. We will continue to play 18-hole courses all over the Bay Area and sometimes beyond.
We oftentimes hang out after the round for a meal or a drink. This is optional, so don't feel obligated to stick around if your plans do not permit it.
We are also open to suggestions for playing various courses in the Bay Area. If there is a course you would like to play, let one of the Event Organizers know and we will look to getting it on the calendar.
Annual NON-REFUNDABLE fee: $11.36.
If a member is removed from our group, this fee will not be refunded.
ATTENDANCE and RSVPs
Our attendance policy is strict. This is a requirement as we reserve tee times up to two weeks in advance, and we are required to fill those tee times. Golf courses do not like last minute cancellations as they make their money by having full foursomes.
When you receive notifications of scheduled meetups, it is not necessary to reply "No" if you are not attending an event. You have the option to click on "Yes" or "No," but you don't have to; you can simply delete the email without replying. Of course, if you RSVP "Yes" then your plans change, you must update your RSVP to "No."
Do not sign up for a meetup if there's a chance that you might have to cancel at the last minute. It's better for you to sign up at the last minute than to cancel at the last minute.
* Although one no-show may result in the removal from our group, the first no-show may only be given a warning, depending on the circumstances.
* Last-minute cancellations are frowned upon. A last-minute cancel is if you cancel your RSVP after the RSVP deadline or after an Event Organizer has posted the group assignments, which might be a day or two before the RSVP deadline.
* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.
* Last-minute cancellations will be accepted from our "regular" members who have a good attendance record—until it starts to become a habit.
Thank you for observing and respecting our policies. We work hard to ensure that our members always have a great experience on the golf course.
Welcome to the Northern California Golf Club. We look forward to your upcoming participation.

Shadow and Dallas
Vintage Women of the South Bay
San Jose, CA
This is an amazing group of women that has been evolving and growing since 2009. Some of us are empty nesters and are asking ourselves, “Now what?” Some of us are between jobs or newly retired and are wondering what to do with our free time. Some of us are new to the area and want to grow our circle of friends. And some of us just want to leave the menfolk at home and enjoy a girls’ day out.
For me, most of my friends and family had moved away. Someone mentioned meet up and this is the first group I found, and so happy I did. I met women my own age right in my own backyard that I may never have met on my own. Life is so much richer with friends and a strong sense of community.
We enjoy activities such as movies, Bunco, chat nights, plays, golf, brunches, art festivals, day trips and morning walks. And if there is something you would like to do but don’t see it here, you are welcome to host your own activity.
Join us if you like to laugh and try new things.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be female and over 50 to join. A profile photo of yourself is required when joining Vintage Women so we can recognize you at events.
San Jose Mid-Week Hikers Group
San Jose, CA
This group was started to accommodate hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to go on organized hikes during the week. Whether due to mid-week days off, flexible work schedules, retirement or kids in school, if you have days/time off during the week and want to get out and enjoy the wonderful hiking we have in the bay area, this is the group for you. All hiking levels are encouraged to join and we welcome members of other hiking groups in the area as well. We welcome feedback and suggested hikes from members and we keep our organized hikes to fairly small groups (less than 20). We try to schedule several hikes each week. Our Hiking adventures tend to be 4-10 miles in length with varied levels of elevation change. They last between two and six hours normally. Please do not be discouraged if you are new to hiking. You can start by picking a shorter, easier outing.

P&G is about community both online and offline. We are in our own small way trying to empower the individual to better engage within our community and the larger world.

We will be hosting monthly events with different professions like marketing, legal, medical, engineering, interpreters, education, entrepreneurs, etc. Our events will be held in safe, private nice environments and locations during lunch hours.

South Bay Art
San Jose, CA
This group is for anyone who is interested in creating and sharing art. All mediums such as charcoal, water color, oil paint, etc. are welcome. All skill levels are welcome as well.
For our group's events, you'll find a mix of outdoor painting, life painting, portrait parties and online zoom critiques and the locations vary from as far North as San Francisco to as far South as Monterey for the outdoor painting.
I try to host a few painting workshops a year, but I should say that most events aren't classes or workshops in that I consider the group more of a social group who's members enjoy creating and sharing art with other artists. That being said, if you've got questions, are looking for a critique, or are stuck on something feel free to ask for help though. We really do have a nice mix of experienced artists who are happy to help.

San Jose, CA
DEAR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS, <br>
THIS GROUP IS FOR MEMBERS AGES 45 and up. IF YOU ARE NOT WITHIN THIS AGE RANGE, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. <br>
YOU MUST ALSO HAVE A RECENT AND CLOSE-UP PHOTO OF YOURSELF (just you, please, no other people) AS YOUR PROFILE PICTURE (we use this photo to recognize you in large settings and for safety reasons). ANYONE WHO WAS ACCEPTED BY USING A PHOTO REPRESENTING A " MUCH YOUNGER VERSION OF SELF" NOT SHOWING THEIR CURRENT AGE AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP. NO PICTURES WITH CHILDREN OR OTHER PEOPLE.
The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.
Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.
We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.
We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…
Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 4 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we start accepting new members again.
Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.
We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.
If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.
Hope to meet you soon!
"Amendment" to our policies: <br>
There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.
We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.
Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)
