New Yardage to Creek on Hole #6

For any members not aware, we installed reflectors on top of the yellow hazard stakes just next to the creek on #6.  Knowing the exact distance to the creek is pivotal when choosing the proper club.  Members now can easily use their range finder and zero in on those reflectors and get that distance.

Please fill in your divot with sand as well as repair ball marks on the greens.  When fixing ball marks please make sure you use a divot repair and do not just hit the edge of the mark with your putter.  If everyone can fix theirs plus two others, we should never have a divot unfilled and an old ball mark!

I would like to Thank everyone in advance for your cooperation.

New Addition to GCC!

 

Last week, a new 4 sided clock was installed next to the putting green. This clock has been 3 years in the making. Our logo is centered in the face of the clock and it also illuminates at night. One of our members had a vision to elevate the appearance and quality of GCC and we are very pleased with the direction. While the majority of the funds were raised by the membership, GCC also helped out with paying for the clock, and I am happy to have it added to my beautiful view I have every day while working.  Even though the clock is up, the project is not yet complete. Phil Cagle has been nice enough to donate the landscaping around the foundation and that will be complete in the upcoming weeks.  A big Thank You goes out to our membership and to everyone that loves GCC as much as I do!

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.
