STMGC Bentgrass Green Project

Beginning in May the course is starting a putting green seeding micro-punched with 777 seed to all 27 holes. For the next two months they will apply seed to 5 holes a day and then repeat the cycle again. The new bent grass seed is resistant to the fungus that attacked the greens last year and they are hoping this will prevent the same issues this year. In the fall we should see a difference in the greens.

The board has created a new Code of Conduct and be read here.

STMGC Accurate & Long Drive Contests

Accurate Drive Competition on #8 and a Long Drive Competition on #17. Of course you need to pay to play.

The object of the Accurate drive is the same as Closest to the Pin except it is how close to the line on hole #8. Place the Marker next to where your tee shot landed. If your drive is closer to the line than the prior entrants drive move the marker to your ball location and cross out the other name. Distance off the tee box is not important.

Handicapping FAQ

Adjusting Hole Scores for Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)™

Q.  What is the current method for adjusting my hole scores under Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)?

A.  ESC is an adjustment of individual hole scores (for handicap purposes) in order to make handicaps more representative of a player's potential ability. ESC is applied after the round and is only used when the actual score or the most likely score exceeds a player’s maximum number. ESC sets a limit to the number of strokes a player can take on a hole depending on Course Handicap™. Apply ESC to all scores, including tournament scores. Below is the maximum number a player can take:

Course Handicap Maximum Number
9 or less Double Bogey
10-19 7
20-29 8
30-39 9
40 and above 10

Please visit Section 4-3 of the USGA Handicap System manual for further reference.

Results & Standings

Results of Previous Tournaments 


NCGA Sr 2-MBB & 2-MBB (@90%) - Saturday's weather was cloudy and sunny with strong winds from 15!25mph all day. Temperatures of 65-72º.


The course was in good shape except some bunkers where a little wet. Also noticed on #7 they are removing the first bunker, too bad the hole is losing some of it's character. Recently Santa Teresa cut down over 10 dead trees around the course.


First Flight Sr NCGA Qual 2-MBB - Was a run away by the team of Gib Gibson / Stan Yamada. Stan got the team off to a quick start with two birdies. Their team score of 62 beat the next 4 Teams w/ 65's. Gib and Stan will be trying to qualify on August 8th at a local course and hopefully advance to the Championship flight at Poppy Ridge in September.


2nd Flight 2-MBB - Was a closer race with a tie for first by Teams Lapointe/Holley vs. Burton Conmy both with Net 65's. L & H won with a Net 32 vs Net 35 back nine. Third place money went to the two Randy's Bleske/Stark.


Next month it the Individual Net Amateur. 


Check your score and all the detailed results.


Pace of Play: Clocks on 1 and 18. Take a look at the report.

Group 1 played in 5:00 last group 5:27, representing a sizeable  27 minutes of slip. 

Out of 11 groups only 4 had good times, it was not our best showing. I think what happens is you are close to groups all day and then a few errant shots and you fall behind. Hopefully when this happens early in the round the time is made up.


See the detailed Timing Report.

Timing Summary
