Putting - Should you use a line on your ball

I read this interesting article. (I use a single dot to focus on)

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.


STMGC Allows use of Smartphones

  • STMGC adopted a local rule for the use of Smartphones as a Distance Measuring Device (DMD) during competition (see local rules)

Results & Standings

Results of Previous Tournaments 

Individual Low Net - Saturday's weather was cool to begin with but warmed nicely throughout the day. Sunny with temperatures of 54-67º. The putting greens are back to good conditions. Unfortunately we got off to a 20 minute late start and the overall time was disappointing compared to prior months. As a group though we had very little slippage, see below.


First Flight - Was a 4-Way tie with Net 71's. Tim Enney (a new member), won the tiebreaker on the last three holes. Doug Speidel, Tony Ralph and Jorgen Jensen came in 2nd, 3rd, 4th respectively. They divide 2nd, 3rd, 4th money equally. Note: Tiebreak method is based on last 9, last 6, last 3, last 1. If no tie decided then starts on front nine. Still undecided arm wrestling contest.


Second Flight - Sam Yamada closed out his year with a win with a Net 65 closely followed by Randy Bleske with Net 66. Randy Minobe and Cesar Bautista tied with Net 70's.


Third Flight - James Endo shot Net 66 to win. Manny Minhoto and Jimmie Birlew tied with Net 67's, Manny had one better on the back Net 35. Kelly Sims solo 4th with Net 69's.


Thank you for playing in our final event in 2017. Looking forward to better times in 2018.


Check your score and all the detailed results.


Pace of Play: Clocks on 1 and 18. Take a look at the report it is quite educational :)

Group 1 played in 4:53 last group 5:02. 

Except for the third groups time of 17 minutes behind everyone else did a great job of keeping up. Awesome!


See the Timing Report.


Keep in mind our POP guidelines and play ready golf so we can all try to finish at the same pace set by the first group.


Pace of Play Policy
All STMGC tournaments are governed by the provisions of our Pace of Play Policy; see here for details.
