Attention SBMC Members and Friends

Due to delays at San Jose Country Club, we will be continuing our weekly luncheons at Epping Forest Yacht & Country Club through the month of January. 


Join us for our December golf outing at The Palencia Club in St. Augustine!

The golf course practice facilities are heralded by one and all for the spacious 10,000 square feet of putting surfaces, 400 yard double-sided driving range along with a short-game area to fine tune the chipping and bunker play.
Established in 2002, the golf course had earned the honor of being an Audubon Sanctuary honoring the beauty of nature, pristine views of magnificent marsh and river views as well as blending gracefully into the Palencia "best of class" community.
