 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.

Northern California Golf Club's Beginner+ Group

Fremont, CA

Northern California Golf Club's Beginner+ Group

We are a social golf meetup group for those who have experience on a golf course, as well as beginners who have taken professional lessons.


Due to player developments or improvements in the golf skill level of many of the members, we branched out from our sister Club, the Bay Area Beginner Golf Meetup Group.


I am the creator of the below rules for the BABGMG (in 2012), so I am copying, pasting and updating them here, starting with some of our 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 in NCGC's Beginner+ Group (NCGCb+) events at your own risk, and neither I/the Organizer nor the Event Organizers will be liable for damages or injuries caused by you or any of our members during our meetups or travel to and from our meetups. NCGCb+ 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, 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 GOAL

Let’s play our part in promoting and practicing the industry’s goal of finishing a round in about 4.5 hours.


OUR ACTIVITIES

Although this is a new golf meetup group, many members of this Club have been golfing together for more than 8 or 9 years. For close to a decade, 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, as well as schedule 9-hole events and group golf lessons for the newer golfers in our group.


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 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.


FEES

Annual NON-REFUNDABLE fee: $15.00 

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.

* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.


ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS   

-- I understand that pace of play is very important to this group. If I am a slower player, I agree to pick up my ball if necessary to maintain a good pace of play.

-- Although there will be some 9-hole meetups scheduled, I understand that most of the meetups will be for those who are at an advanced-beginner or intermediate level. As a beginner, if I’d like (more) 9-hole or easier 18-hole meetups scheduled, I will request them.

-- I understand that this group takes its rules seriously and that infraction of any of the group’s policies will result in my removal without a refund of my membership dues.

-- I agree that by RSVPing to a meetup, I am committing to attend that event. I understand that cancellations should only be for exceptional circumstances and that multiple cancellations will result in my removal from this group without a refund of my membership dues.

-- I understand that some meetups may require a pre-payment, and in the event that I am unable to attend, it is my responsibility to find a replacement player. If a replacement is unavailable, I understand that I forfeit my pre-payment.

-- If health-related mandates are issued (including for COVID-19), I will be participating in NCGCb+ events at my own risk, and I agree to follow any and all social precautions imposed by the golf course and the county in which the course resides. 


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's Beginner + Group. We look forward to your upcoming participation.

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

Burlingame, CA

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

We are a group of women who enjoy challenging weekday hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area.  This is not a group for beginners. Some of us are retired or with kids off to college, some are stay at home moms with school-age kids, others have flexible work schedules or are in between jobs. Some are international visitors/visa holders/green card holders or dual citizenships.  Regardless, we all have time during weekdays when the trails are empty and parking is a breeze!

We mainly focus on peninsula, south bay, east bay, and coastal trails, but also plan excursions to Mt. Tam, Marin Headlands, and San Francisco urban hikes.  Most hikes are 6-10 miles and moderate to strenuous with significant elevation gain of 1000-2000 feet elevation. Sometimes we do exploratory hikes and some hikes can include some scrambles - please be sure to read the entire hike description so you know what you are signing up for in advance. In order to keep to the planned schedule and keep the group moving, anyone unable to keep up will need to feel comfortable navigating their way back on their own.

All members can schedule a hike or suggest a hike, and are encouraged to do so through the meetup app! Let me know if you have questions on how to do this. 

We throw in many dog-friendly hikes too!  You can also join our Facebook page, where we post interesting articles, photos, and ideas for our next new trail.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1374244199552554/

We enjoy each others company and believe that friendly conversation is as much part of a good hike as the beautiful views!  If this sounds good, please come join us- we would love to meet you!

FAQ's

Can I bring my baby or toddler?  Although we love kids, our hikes are not suitable for young children

• Can I bring my dog?  Sometimes! I will specify which hikes are dog friendly.  If you are bringing a new dog, just tell us a little about him/her in the comment section


Please note that for safety reasons, we have a 3 hiker minimum requirement.  Unless we have at least 3 hikers confirmed 2 hours before the start of the hike, the hike will be cancelled.  Thanks for your understanding!

This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE (no matter what), meaning, you will not get reimbursed for whatever reason, including this Meetup group gets delete or cancelled for whatever reason and/or it you get delete from the group. If you join this group and do not attend any events within the first 4 months of signing up, you will be removed from the group.

<br>

If an event is hosted at a private house, the owner of the house is in charge of their guest list. They can pick and choose who they would like to attend. This might mean that a private home event might automatically go into a waitlist and the owner of the home will be able to create the guest list themselves (meaning, they can pick and choose who comes into their home).

<br>
