STMGC Advances to NCGA Sr 4-Ball Net Championship

Congratulations to Brian Malekzadeh and Marc Allyn who advanced at the NCGA Senior 4-Ball Net Championship. They chose Del Monte in Monterey to qualify where and out of 40 teams the top 5 would advance to the Championship round at Poppy Hills on September 7-8th.  They ran the show and tied for 1st place out of 40 teams. Great team work and outstanding job representing STMGC!

You can see the results here.


STMGC Match Play

Santa Teresa Golf Men's Club played at DeLaveaga on August 5th and finished the season with a 19-17 win. Way to go out strong.


From Scott Ansok:

Thanks for all our members who played on the STMGC Match Play team this year.  Our 2-3-1 record was not great, but it was respectable and much better than the last couple of years.  The team represented the club well and it was fun season overall.  This was some serious golf but not “over the top” serious and we and met some really good people from the clubs we played (and even within our club).  The other clubs all really enjoyed coming to Santa Teresa and thought a lot of our course and members.


Facebook Pictures of STMGC

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.

Results & Standings

Results of Previous Tournaments 

Individual Low Net - The weather was comfortable and winds picked up during the day.  It was sunny the temperatures of 68-87º with calm to a moderate breeze. The putting greens had several issues due to a fungus. The course hopes it will clear up once the weather starts cooling down at night and we'll get back to the greens we love to roll on.


First Flight was won with a Lo Net score of 69 by Eric Falk. This was his first tournament too. Close behind were Walter Robe and Dick Jenkins with net 70's.


Second Flight was won with a Lo Net score of 66 by Rick Flores followed by his brother with a Net 67.


Third Flight was had two Lo Net scores of 68 by Jeong Park and Steve Kister. Jeong back 9 of 35 was 1 better than Steve's.


See all the detailed results.


Pace of Play: We tried something new with the clocks on 1 and 18. The goal was to have all groups to finish within a minute or two overall. As a group we did well.  Groups 1~7 kept pace, Group 8 added to the overall times and the rest of the groups kept a good pace to finish. Great Job!


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.
