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.

February Event Re-Schedule

Our event that was scheduled for February and canceled due to mother nature will be re-scheduled for June 24. We will have 2 events in June.

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.
