Attention Golfers!!

Another summer brings us the opportunity to support the local First Tee affiliate again, and I wanted to remind you that this year’s Sea Trail celebration is the week of August 19-23.

STMGA will hold a Tuesday tournament where our members contribute $20 (instead of the weekly $8 game) with excess funds going to the First Tee Coastal Carolinas.  We will also hold the annual collection of golf items on Tuesday from 3-4:30 pm, but one important change this year will be that they are no longer accepting hats, shoes, tees, umbrellas, shorts, shirts etc—only golf clubs with or without bags, and balls are requested.  There is a particular need for lightweight kids carry bags, if your members have any of that. Of course, cash or check donations are also welcome. Should you have brand new bags or shoes, or golf certificates, that can be used as raffle prizes, that is also sought.


We hope the Niners and STLGA will continue their support of this endeavor, which has raised $1,500 $2,500 each year since we started it in 2019!

Hello Neighbors,

A quick note to SAVE THE DATE for this year’s

26th Annual Rice Mill Open – Golf Outing and Neighborhood Social !!

Saturday, September 14, 2024 – Sea Trail Golf Resort

We will have golf tee times in the morning, then plan to have our Social as a dinner event to be held at one of Sea Trail’s new restaurant venues.

More detail will follow over the coming weeks, but please do plan to be around and join us. It promises to be a fun event with lots of new neighbors to meet, and “seasoned” members to see again…

Thank you!
