STGC has a thriving social side to the club. It is particularly well supported on Sundays when members stay for a chat and a drink after playing in competitions. There are a range of events during the year including the Derby Day (when one or two coaches are booked to the Epsom Derby and members spend the day there, barbecues in summer, birthday parties for members, a Christmas party for children, race night and night golf. Night golf is attracting a greater following as it is such fun. Teams of five go out to play five holes in the dark (normally the nearest Friday to Guy Fawkes Night) with flashing golf balls and return for chilli con carni and chicken curry in the clubhouse.
