South Park Golf Club,


The members of the South Park Golf Club invite you to review our website and find out what it is that has made South Park one of the more popular men's golf clubs in Buffalo, New York for over 80 years. Our members compete in weekly and monthly tournaments on the South Park Golf Course located on the border of South Buffalo and Lackawanna.

The South Park Golf Club, or "SP" as its affectionately known, is a member club of the USGA, the BDGA, and the WNYPLGA. As a member club of each of these organizations all of our members are entitled to play in any tournament or event held by these organizations.

Passing of Club Vice President Darrin Koepnick

The South Park Golf Club lost one of its most popular members and long-time Club Vice-President when Darrin Koepnick succumbed after a long battle with cancer on October 26, 2016. Darrin greeted everyone with a big smile as a friend and was well respected for his play on the golf course. He finally won the "B" Class Championship in 2014 after many near misses, and he also won the "B Class Slam" when he won the "B" Class Scratch Match Play Championship later that year. Darrin also won the Scratch "B" Class Match Play Championship in 2011, as well as various monthly tournaments through the years. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Sue. Darrin will surely be missed by all and the 2017 South Park Golf Club season will be played in Darrin's honor.
