Vinnie Poncino, our Head Pro, is the new Match Play Champion for the Southern California section of the PGA of America!!!
Vinnie was crowned yesterday, July 28th, when he beat Michael Block from Arroyo Trabuco at the Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe 2 and 1. Not only did Vinnie win the tournament but by doing so jumped into the lead for the OMEGA Southern California PGA Player Of The Year.

Vinnie did not have much trouble in his matches leading up to the final. He had a bye in the first round and won his matches 3&1. 4&3. 3&2 before taking on and defeating 6 time Southern California PGA Player of the Year, Michael Block.

Congratulations Vinnie!!

Dear San Clemente Municipal Golf Course Golfers,


Beginning , Wednesday, July 29 (for tee times beginning August 5), online tee time bookings will be once again managed by the Pro Shop. The site will look a little different with enhancements to:
  • easily book a foursome with the ability to split payments at check-in
  • cancel your tee time on your own online up to 24 hours in advance

How do I book my next tee time?
Booking will still be done online beginning at 6:00am one week in advance at www.san-clemente.org/golf. To make this transition as easy as possible, we have set up your new account already. The first time you log in, your username and password will both be your email address (enter your email twice).

Can I book by phone or walk up?
At this time booking is online only. The transfer to booking through Pro Shop managed golf software is an important step towards returning to full course operations.

Important information for Resident Card Holders
Your Resident Card discount will be applied at check-in. Most Resident Card information has been entered into the new system already. You can double check your Resident Card has been entered under "My Passes". If you do not see your current Resident Card, please bring it to the Pro Shop at check-in to ensure your information and rates are updated for your current and future tee times. Note resident card expirations have been extended to accommodate the spring course closure.

Get Ready Now!
You can login now here: www.san-clemente.org/golf (click “Book a Tee Time”)!

To make your future reservations as quick and easy as possible, you can login to your account now, click “Log In” (three line menu in upper right), add your credit card on file (“Credit Cards”), and update your account password (“Account Information”).
