Good afternoon!  What beautiful weather we are going to have this week.  With highs in the low 80's all week and low humidity it is going to be so pleasant outside.  This is what we have been waiting for, so if you can't play golf at least try to eat lunch or dinner outside and enjoy it while we have it.

Young are victorious again!  That's how the headline reads after a hard fought weekend of golf in last weekend's War of the Ages.  The final score was 24.5 to 23.5 points and there are numerous stories of what could have or should have been but the cup stays in the hands of the Young team for another year.  Congratulations to the Young Team, captained by Austin Chinn!  The Seasoned Team will have to wait one more year to hopefully claim victory.

It's hard to believe that summer is almost gone and kids will be going back to school in less than two weeks.  It has been an awesome summer with 7 total junior camps and I hope all the juniors that attended the camps continue playing golf this fall.  Starting August 18 the Tuesday junior clinics will start back up from 4:30-5:30 pm.  Every Tuesday juniors can learn to play golf for only $15 per session.

Best golf since 1970

The Golf Course at Germantown Country Club was designed and built under the supervision of famous golf course designer and architect, J. Press Maxwell, in 1969. The Golf Course was opened along with the other club facilities in July of 1970.

Since the initial inception and construction of the 6,887 yard Championship Golf Course, many additions and changes to the course have taken place. Currently we have TifEagle grass on the greens and 419 Bermuda grass on all the fairways and collars.  Germantown Country Club has the finest putting surface all 12 months of the year of any club in the area.

Germantown Country Club has been selected to host the final Qualifying Rounds for the United States Open Golf Tournament by the USGA on four different occasions. We have also been host to national tournaments for both high school and inter-collegiate golf organizations.

The Club is proud to be a member of the PGA, USGA, TGA and the MGA. These organizations offer tournament competition in which many of our members participate.

Preview the breathtaking beauty of the Germantown Country Club course.
