Members of LHGC are eligible to establish GHIN handicaps. The USGA Handicap System has made it possible for golfers of differing abilities to enjoy fair competition. Today, there are more than 4.5 million golfers who have USGA Handicap Indexes issued by affiliate golf clubs like Leisure Hour Golf Club. More info or post scores here:
A Women in Golf Clinic is sponsored each summer to bring new women to the enjoyment of golf as a source of friendly competition, recreation and social networking. Please contact LHGC on the Contact Page for more information on plans for 2014.
In 1978, the Leisure Hour Jr. Golf Program was created to bring the passion of golf to the children. The focus was to address the future of North and Northeast Portland – the youth. It started as a group of 6 children and has grown to include a roster of over 100 active junior golfers. To provide assistance and guidance, parents and mentors volunteer their knowledge, skills and abilities to expand the world of golf to the youth. The Jr. Golf Program consists of classroom instruction, clinics, and on-course instruction. As a youth organization striving for excellence, the Program recognizes that it takes the support of a village to raise the child. The Program depends on the community as our largest support group. In return, participants in the program are required to participate in various community service activities. Contact the LHGC Jr. Golf Program for more information.
Leisure Hour club members are encouraged to participate in regularly established tee-times for members and guests. Regular tee-times are available each Saturday and Wednesday year-round.
Every week-end, members are invited to enjoy a round of golf at a different area golf course. The golf outings may be part of the LHGC Sweepstakes schedule or just a fun outing to play a new course with club members. The LHGC Calendar will detail the events scheduled for 2020. See the Calendar for more info.
LHGC members are encouraged to participate in tournaments sponsored by the Western States Golf Association and Northwest Golf Association. Club members travel to fun places throughout the Pacific Northwest and Western U.S. to participate in events sponsored by affiliate groups.
