Club Social Activities
Hills Country Club supports a very active Women’s Club that
provides friendship and fun for the non-golfers. If you’re
interested in playing Mah Jongg, Pinochle and/or Bridge, please
call the Club at 541.998.2365 for contact information.
Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am, come join the fun. Mah Jongg
is a game for three or four players per table. It is played
with dice and tiles and is very similar to old-fashioned rummy.
Patterned tiles are put together in sets of two, three and
four as well as run sequences. Players start with 13 tiles
and “Mah Jongg” occurs when 14 tiles can be shown in a grouping
that appears on each player’s Mah Jongg card. The cards come
from the National Mah Jongg League and are in effect for one
year. Beginners welcome.
Couples/Mixed pinochle is offered on the second Friday evening
of each month. This is organized play with telephone calls
made during the week before to establish the number of tables
needed. Play is controlled by tallies to ensure a thorough
mixing of players.
Dinner isn’t a prerequisite but is a good time to visit and
get-to-know fellow members. Substitutes are also welcome to
sign up. Social gathering begins about 5:00 pm, followed by
dinner with play usually getting underway by 6:30 – 7:00 pm.
Women- semi-organized play is held at 10:00 am every Wednesday
for women members on a “come-when-you-can” basis. We’re a
very flexible, friendly group. No need to call…just come out.
This is a great way to renew pinochle skills, meet members
and enjoy lunch in between sessions.
Partner Bridge Partner
Partners/Mixed Bridge is played on the first and third Friday
evenings of the month at the Club. Meet for dinner in the
dining room at 5:30pm and play cards afterwards. The group
welcomes both men and women bridge players. You must have
a partner to play with, and you must let the organizer know
beforehand so there is an even number for cards. All bridge
skill levels are welcome to play.
Women – a party bridge group meets on the second and fourth
Tuesdays of each month. Play starts at 10:00 am with a break
for lunch around noon.
Couples/Mixed Shadow Hills hosts a duplicate bridge group
on the first, third and fifth Tuesdays of each month, year-round.
Play starts at 10 am with a break for lunch at around noon.
Play continues after lunch until 2:30 or 3 pm. No advance
reservation is necessary; just show up with a bridge partner.
Both men and women are welcome.
