STONE CREEK LADIES' GOLF CLUB
On behalf of the Stone Creek Ladies' Golf Club, welcome to Stone Creek! Here is an introduction to the ladies' golf group.
The organization of the Stone Creek Ladies' Golf Club is done through a rotating board of nine ladies coordinating with the Stone Creek Golf Club personnel.
Goals: The Stone Creek Ladies' Golf Club is open to all women residents of Stone Creek. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for ladies of our community to play golf and socialize together on a periodic basis. Our intention is to function as an interconnected ladies' golf club, not segregated by skill level or number of holes played.
All women golfers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in the weekly Ladies' Play Day as your schedule permits. You may choose to play 18-holes or 9-holes based on your preference for each week. As a new community, we are growing and want to continually welcome our new neighbors and our friends to play and socialize as a group.
Thank you for your interest and participation in the Stone Creek Ladies' golf events. We look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood and on the course.
Ladies' Play Day
Each Monday has been designated as the Ladies' Play Day. Tee times have been reserved for our group so that we can complete our rounds as closely together as possible, allowing time to socialize afterwards as a group at the Stone Creek Grille.
We have two "seasons" that determine our start times. The "prime season" and the "summer season". The difference allows us to establish consistent start times for each season and to adjust the anticipated number of tee times to reserve based on participation, summer being a smaller group.
Prime Season Play (September through May)
If you wish to play 18-holes, the starting tee time is 11:45 am (mini-shotgun start).
If you wish to play 9-holes, the starting tee time is 1:00 pm (mini-shotgun start).
Summer Season Play (June through August)
Starting tee times will be adjusted so that both groups begin together:
If you wish to play 18-holes, the starting tee time is 11:30 am
If you wish to play 9-holes, the starting tee time is 11:30 am
*Note: times may vary by a few minutes based on current pace of play
Sign-up each week by noon on Wednesday using the sheet posted on the bulletin board in the pro shop, to reserve your spot. After Wednesday, you may be added based on availability or included on a waiting list in case of cancellations. If you find that you must cancel, please call the pro shop (352-854-1272) as early as possible so that teams may be adjusted and anyone on a waiting list may be called to play.
Ladies should arrive about 30 minutes prior to the starting tee time, allowing time to find your partners, meet new players, and organize carts and bags.
The Stone Creek Golf pros set up foursomes and post them each Monday morning on the pro shop counter at the register. A fun and friendly individual or team game is setup each week. A cost of $2.00 each week is paid when you check-in to participate in the game. Players must have an active handicap index (using GHIN) to participate in the games. House guests of a resident may play on Ladies' Day, but may not participate in the paid Stone Creek Ladies Golf members' game. Winners of the game will be awarded with pro shop credit and posted on the bulletin board.
In addition to weekly Ladies' Play Day, there are typically three socials during the season: a Fall Ladies' Golf Social, an annual Holiday Social, and the End of Season Spring Ladies' Golf Social. The socials are an organized group golf event with food and beverage, prizes, and a great opportunity to meet and get together as friends and neighbors.
Annual dues of $10 have been established to support printing costs, our Ladies' Golf Club website, and costs for hosting the Ladies' Golf Luncheons and Socials. Dues are to be made payable to "Stone Creek Ladies' Golf Club" and will be collected beginning each October. Any new member paying dues following the Spring End of Season Social, will be carried over to the following season. Click HERE for additional details and membership dues form.

Golf Tips and Tournament Strategies
Strategies for lower scores.
Making good choices in a tournament round is essential for good scoring.
Before you play, commit to some strategies that you will encounter during the round. Always get your ball back into play if you are in the trees, instead of trying some incredible shot up or under the trees to the green. Manage your misses.
Around the green, always opt for getting the ball on the green in order to putt, rather than trying to get it close and missing the green altogether.
Think of fairways and greens and not distance as you play. Take one more club than you think you need, and make every putt finish a little past the hole.
Have a good mental outlook for your round.
It is very important that you have a calm, positive, and focused mindset in order to play your best. Before your round, find a quiet place and just breathe, relax, and calm yourself so that you feel free of any stress. Focus on the day ahead, and enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful scenery, and good friends.
On the course, stay relaxed between shots, smile often, and take in nature. When it is your turn to play, direct your focus on that one shot and not anything that went before or might come in the future. Stay in the moment.
Finally, learn to let go of any anger. It does not make your game any better and only serves to create tension and waste energy.
