Welcome to this Southbay Nikkei Golf Club website, www.sbngc.com.  

Southbay Nikkei Golf Club was started by golfers like Mas Hayashi, the  first    club president,
back in 1988.  There were 38 golfers, many belonging to other golf clubs in the area, whose
desire was to golf on a
weekday for recreation and having a good time.   Friday was golf day
with a tee time of ten in the morning.  Local courses like Sunnyvale, Riverside, Shoreline,
Palo Alto Muni, Summitpointe and Spring Valley were played, and with the help of Mas
Yamauchi, Moffet Field was added.   If you have an Interest in golfing you are invited to join
the  group.   

In 2009, we welcomed members of the Closest To The Pin Golf Club presided by Glenn
Tsuchiya to join us.   Since then we have continued to add new members (check the
