Branch 35




Trail Birds



Chairman: Bob Garten

Golf is one of the most popular activities of Mission Trail SIR Branch #35 members. We are members of  the Northern California Golf Association and we play to a handicap. Golfers of all handicaps are welcome and have an equal chance to win in our tournaments.  You can count on having a good time with a friendly group of men who enjoy this sport.

Many of our regular golfers pitch in to act as Tournament Conductors for our more than 50 tournaments each year.  Other golfers contribute their time by organizing tournaments, signing up players at our monthly SIR meeting and providing all the materials and follow-ups for each tournament.  Some of the contributors are listed below:

The first Big Sir in the charter year 1971 was Hal Orion. We have an honorary "Orion Golf Tournament" each year. The winner's name is inscribed on an attractive plaque that he retains for a year, and then passes on to the next year's champion. This is but one of several exciting and enjoyable tournaments with a variety of formats. Four to six tournaments a month are available to members, depending on the time of year and the weather. Tournaments are held on over 30 beautiful and challenging courses within driving distance of  the Bay area.  As you can see on the schedule at the link below tournaments are scheduled at Aptos Seascape, Shoreline, Pajaro Valley, San Ramon, Santa Clara, Poppy Ridge, Poppy Hills, Eagle Ridge and Ridgemark, to name a few.
We also hold an annual golfer's banquet for golfers and spouses and friends with awards for "Golfer of the Year," "Most Improved Golfer, "Hole-in-One," and various fun awards.  In 2007 the banquet was attended by over 90 people.
