In Memoriam
Mike Matkowski
Mike Matkowski - 1947 to 2016

Long-time member Mike Matkowski left the course for the final time on November 30, 2016. Born in Philadelphia, Mike moved to the San Jose area over 20 years ago where he worked in the technology industry.  Club records show he joined back in the late 1990's and served on the Board of Directors and as Tournment Chairman during his membership.  Although he never won Player of the Year honors, Mike was always in the hunt and made the TOC finals eight times. The club will miss his presence and competitive spirit.
