FOUNDED JANUARY, 1997
The club was founded by a group of golfers who enjoy the game immensely, and traditionally journeyed to Myrtle Beach, SC, in November each year for their final rounds of golf for the season.
The Linksmen Golf Club currently has a membership roster of 60 African American gentlemen from various walks of life, who reside in 13 different states and the District of Columbia. Prospective members must be sponsored by a current member in good standing and must attend at least one tournament as a guest prior to applying. Initiation fee is $125.00, which includes annual dues for the first year. The initiation fee also covers the cost of two Linksmen Golf shirts and two golf caps.
Each club member who desires to have his handicap calculated by the club is required to submit at least 10 scores per year. Handicaps are used to determine scores in all tournaments. The club uses a USGA sanctioned software system to generate and track handicaps for members.
Members must have at least 10 scores registered with the secretary within a 12-month period preceding any tournament to be eligible for awards. Scores should be submitted as rounds of golf are played to avoid a massive crunch just prior to a tournament.
