About US  

The Sand Trap Golf Club (STGC) is an SCGA affiliate club based primarily in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita Valleys and Ventura County. We have no home course. Our tournaments are usually played one Saturday a month and have a field of about 60+ players.

Our Membership has 90+ Members. The club is open to both men and women who love the game of golf and having fun!

Simi Hills, Sterling Hills, Brookside, Soule Park, Tierra Rejada, River Ridge and a couple 2-day away tourneys to places like Pismo Beach or Palm Springs are examples of the courses we typically play.  Check out our schedule for this year!!

Our tournaments are typically run as 3 or 4 flighted stroke games (depending on the number of players) and always include a little social time at the 19th hole. The only thing we ask is that a player be able to get around an 18-hole regulation course in a timely manner. Every now and then we throw in a Team Scramble event and other side games like “The Pink Ball”.

Our events award prizes for both gross and net winners. We also have both gross and net club championship competitions. The annual STGC club champions in each flight are eligible to play in SCGA’s Tournament of Club Champions in Palm Springs each December if they choose.

SCGA Information

The SCGA runs "member outings" as well as it's own Tournaments. The member outings are not tournaments but rather a way to get out and play courses that we would not normally be able to play and at a discount. The tournaments are similar to the ones the PLGA ran. If your interested check the SCGA webpage.
