In addition to our regular $10.00 tournament entry fee, the Club collects $1.00 from every player. This money goes into a “Hole-in-One Pot.” When a member shoots a hole-in-one in a tournament, he gets all the money in the pot. A new pot will then start accumulating.
Who Are We?
The Santa Barbara Men's Golf Club plays tournaments every third Sunday and the previous Monday at the beautiful Santa Barbara Golf Club.
We also offer special events including:
Membership privileges include:
Tournament entry fees are typically $10.
Our Policy is to have 40% of the players place "in the money".
Welcome to CourseCo!
The Men's Club wants to welcome CourseCo, our course's new management company that takes over all golf and course maintenance operations July 1. We look forward to a long and productive relationship.
CourseCo is now going to be collecting Tournament fees and depositing winnings into the "book" at the shop. As you know we have gone over a year without this service and we welcome the new partnership with the City of Santa Barbara and CourseCo management.
Lenny Kwock and Larry Rodriguez needed to go to a tie-breaking "Card-off" to emerge victorious in the Club's 2-Man Better Ball competition that was decided on June 26. Kwock/Rodriguez, along with two other teams, Jeff Arnold/Mike Woodard and Jeff Earnest/Bryant Henson, shot a combined net score of 123 over the two days of the tournament, putting them into a three-way tie.
The "Card-off", which is the USGA's recommended procedure for breaking ties, first looked at each team's score for the last nine holes played. Using that score, Earnest/Henson were eliminated. The remaining two teams looked at their scores for the last six holes. It was on this score that Lenny and Larry won.
With this victory, Kwock and Rodriguez earned the privilege of representing our Club at the Southern California Golf Association's 2-Man Better Ball Championship to be played later this year at a course down south.
Good Luck Boys. Make our Club proud!
Post Tournament Scores Today?
Every month some players ask, “Do we post today’s scores as Tournament Scores?” Almost every month, the answer is, “No. Post it as a regular home score.”
Why? We’re playing in a club tournament, aren’t we? Players in other clubs at the Muni post all scores as Tournament Scores? Why don’t we?

July Rules Quiz
In a regular Monday SBMGC tournament with an individual-play format, Stanley hit his tee shot to the left portion of the green on Hole #2. This gave him two problems. First, the hole was cut to on the right side of the green, giving him a steep, downhill putt that will surely run past the hole if it misses. Also, the wind the previous night had scattered large leaves across the green, some of which were in his line of putt. Stanley took a few seconds to remove the leaves between his ball and the hole. As he was doing this, his fellow competitor, Ollie, began removing leaves from behind the hole that might serve as a backstop for Stanley’s putt if it rolled past the hole. Stanley quickly asked Ollie to stop removing any leaves and to replace the leaves he had moved. Ollie continued to remove more leaves, claiming that the Rules of Golf allow him to move loose impediments on the green and that leaving them there would give Stanley an unfair advantage.
What penalty, if any, should Ollie be assessed?
