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 have a good time. Golfing has always
been on Fridays with 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. Now 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
Members Index page).
