9:00 a.m. ShotgunThe Men’s Club, the Women’s 18-hole Section and the Women’s 9-hole Section invite you and your guest(s) to the 2016 Mixed Invitational. This year, each player - male or female - can sign up alone, with or without a partner, and with or without guests! We will fill your fourso me.
The Entry Fee is $65/per player ($130 for two; $260 for a foursome), which covers prizes and lunch following the round.
Each Regular Member can bring one guest of either sex with no greens fee. Each “Pay as You Play” (Daily Fee) Men’s Club and Women’s Section Member will pay his/her greens fee and guest greens fee in addition to the Entry Fee, payable at the registration table before the round. Cost of carts is not included.
Sign up today on Golf Fusion at http://www.golffusion.com/stanfordgolfcourse/
All members of the Men’s Section (and those Women’s Section members who know they are already registered on Golf Fusion) use the Member Login option. Any Women’s Section members who are not yet registered on Golf Fusion, should use the “Upcoming Tournaments” login option.
This is a foursome event at 100% of handicap. Players can play from any tees, and course handicaps will be adjusted appropriately. Prizes will be awarded in flights to the two (net) best balls in each foresome - with a twist.
Each foursome will form 2 two-person teams and will count the (net) better ball from each twosome on every hole. Each twosome will remain partners for six holes, and then each player will rotate to partner with another member of the foursome for the following six holes, so that each player joins up with all members of the foursome for six consecutive holes each. Each team will score two best balls per hole (one from each two-person team) for a 36 hole net score.

Dear Golf Course Member,
With drought restrictions still in place, Course Superintendent Ken Williams continues to make every effort to reduce water while maintaining playability. Over 350 sprinkler heads were completely cut off on the course last year. This practice will continue through the remainder of 2016 and into 2017. Perimeter areas on the course and range will continue to brown through the hot summer and fall months. Areas in front of the teeing ground will also become increasingly dry and brown. Water usage was decreased by 10% in 2014 and an additional 15% in 2015. We will continue the aggregate 25% reduction from the 2013 water usage baseline.
The Siebel Varsity Golf Training Complex (SVGTC) was renovated and a new Stanford Varsity Golf Clubhouse was completed. Both were opened in the spring of this year. Three golf course and driving range projects were also approved and funded in the past year. Please see the following pages for the project descriptions and updates. A special thank you to the many Stanford Golf Course and Varsity Program supporters whose generous contributions have made these improvements possible.
Athletic Department representatives in conjunction with Stanford’s Project Management team, Vance Brown Builders, Colony Landscape and Beau Welling Design are making every effort to improve golf facilities within budget and University parameters. A special thank you to the dedicated efforts of all contributors; (1) Golf Course Steering Committee, (2) Golf Course Advisory Committee , (3) Owners, Architects and Contractors Strategic Team, (4) Golf Course, Range & SVGTC Management team and (5) Golf Course, Range and SVGTC staff.
Project 1 – The Stanford Golf Learning Center (LC)
The existing Driving Range building will be demolished and replaced with a brand new facility; The Stanford Golf Learning Center (LC). The LC includes improved retail space, ADA restrooms, office space and a small food and beverage operation. The new facility includes a secondary structure, The Performance Center which includes state of the art golf training technology and indoor-to-outdoor covered hitting bays. The LC will provide increased opportunities for golf students and professional instructors to optimize game improvement. The Range will not close during construction however the footprint will be significantly reduced with fewer range mats, limited retail and limited parking.
Estimated project length
Project 2 – Cart Storage Facility & Parking Lot Extension
A new Cart Storage Facility will be built beyond the lower lot between the pump house and the tenth tee. The new facility will be a simple post and beam structure surrounded by fencing material. The facility will have the capacity to charge and store 96 electric vehicles; thereby reducing the number of gas powered carts currently in the fleet. A new fleet of electric carts will replace the gas powered carts. Also featured in the new structure will be increased storage capacity for golf event staging equipment, catering equipment, dry goods and retail receiving. The temporary gas cart storage facility located beyond the lower lot has been demolished. The lower parking lot will be extended providing up to 20 additional parking spaces on pavement.
Estimated project length
Project 3 – Golf Course Irrigation Replacement & Bunker Improvements
The current golf course irrigation system is 30 years old. It is highly recommended by industry professionals that irrigation systems be improved and/or replaced between 15 and 20 years. In addition, golf course bunkers, both fairway and greenside need improvement. Approvals to proceed with this project have been granted. Funding for the project has also been identified. The full scope of the project has not been finalized at this time. The Stanford Project Manager in conjunction with design teams and engineers is currently working to finalize the scope of the project within budget and University parameters.
Estimated project length
As we move forward with these projects, we ask that you be patient with us during the disruptions and potential project delays. The door is open for any and all questions. We are excited about what the future holds at the Stanford Golf Course and look forward to the new and improved facilities for all to enjoy. I am available by telephone or e-mail for questions regarding the project at most any time. There may be a need for me to refer some inquiries directly to the Project Manager, Mark Bonino or Deputy Athletic Director, Ray Purpur.
