South Park Golf Club,
WELCOME TO THE
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 in South Buffalo.
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. While the Club has had its share of worthy champions, including past Buffalo District and WNY Public Links Golf Association Champions, most of our members just enjoy the game of golf and the friendship of our fellow members.
As you will see, the South Park Golf Club is a great place to enjoy the outdoors and one of the most economical golfing bargains in all of Western New York. New members are always welcome, and we invite you to join our Club.

Dan Fitzgibbons is the New Club President for 2016
At the 2015 Awards Banquet held on December 12, 2015, Dan Fitzgibbons was elected by acclimation as the new Club President. Fitzgibbons takes over from Matt Sullivan after Sullivan stepped down following 6 strong years at the helm of the club. Also elected at the meeting were Darrin Koepnick as Vice-President, Sean McNamara as Tournament Chairman, Tim Knott as Golf Chairman, Todd Duffy as Handicap Chairman and Paul Schein Sr. as Treasurer. Congratulations to all and thank you to all former officers for your service to the club.
Paul Schein Sr. is the 2015 Club Player of the Year; Chris Escott Most Improved
In one of the closest battles for the South Park Golf Club's Player of the Year Paul Schein Sr. defeated Jim Fredo Jr. and Gary Masocco by less than 3 points. Schein was tied with Masocco in second place, both 3 points behind Fredo entering the final event of the year, the Turkey Shoot. Schein's second place finish in the Turkey Shoot garnered him enough points to leap frog Fredo and into the player of the year award. Schein was most deserving of the award after a very consistent year in which he won both the B Class Stroke and Match Play Championships.
Chris Escott was named the Most Improved member of club at the season's end awards banquet. Escott's handicap dropped 10 strokes from the beginning to the end of the year, and he parlayed that improvement into the C Class Stroke and Match Play Championships as well. Congratulations to Chris and welcome to B Class!.
