Sankaty vs Kittansett Match
In a hard fought battle at Kittansett, The men from Kittansett retained the Sankitansett Cup (shown in the photo).
Fun day had by all!
Our Club Repair area is fully stocked with the new grips. If you have not had your clubs regripped in the last two years, we encourage you to do so.
We also have a Lie Loft Machine to bend your clubs to properly fit you, so the clubs sole properly and produce the proper direction & trajectory you most desire. See the Golf Shop to set up an appointment to have your clubs checked.
Golf Shop Merchandise – The golf shop is once again fully stocked this season. We have the finest lines in the golf business. Please let us know if you are looking for any product that we don’t stock. Special orders are available in apparel and golf equipment. All merchandise is competitively priced. We will be happy to match lower prices found elsewhere if we can. We appreciate your business and support very much. Thank you.
All of our Teaching Programs, Instructors and fees are highlighted on the web page. Go to Sankatyheadgc.com. We have a fine teaching staff with lots of experience. This is a great time of year to have us look over your swing, and help you get off to a strong start to be competitive in our early events.
The Driving Range - now has a new Yardage sign that lets you know the exact yardage from the ropes to the 4 flags listed. The yardage is measured from the rope that day in the center of the range. We have also added in some swing training aids that will be on the range each day.
These devices are designed to help stretch you out prior to hitting balls as well as increase your clubhead speed.
The Golf Staff is happy to teach you how to use the devices if you need any assistance.
9- Hole Ladies Golf – We are excited about our 9-hole Ladies Group beginning in June. This group is for all new players, as well as those that feel 18-holes is too difficult or takes too long. We encourage those of you over a 36-handicap to consider our 9-hole group. All abilities are welcome.
Pace of Play – We will continue to work hard on improving our pace of play at Sankaty Head this season. It is the members responsibility to know where they are on the golf course. Monitor your pace of play. 13 minutes per hole is the allotted time to play each hole. You should be finished 9 holes in just under two hours. Grab a quick drink and head to the 10th tee. No stopping, no eating in between nines.
A few quick tips:
Tee it forward – We encourage you to play the tee that best suits your game.
Play ready golf (safely) – we will not penalize you for playing out of turn.
Take a quick look for a stray ball. Let the other players continue playing.
Handicaps – In order to compete in any of our events, a Sankaty member must have posted 10 rounds of golf in the Ghin System over the last 12 months to be eligible. This is to protect the field and insure that all participants have accurate and valid USGA handicaps. Please post your score after every round played.
Please let us know how we can make your golfing experience at Sankaty Head Golf Club more enjoyable.
Keep it in the short grass,

Slow Play Tip
During general golf, lets all play Ready Golf
The 1st player that arrives to their ball should hit when ready to allow for a faster pace for your group.
Be prepared if its your turn to play. Do all the pre-swing calculations prior to your turn. Wind direction, yardage, club selection, practice swings etc. That way when its your turn to play you are prepared.
Never hit when a player is in front of you. We want to always stress safety first and then be ready to play when its your turn.
