Please Note:  We are doing a DryJet Aerification to the greens today on the front nine and tomorrow on the back nine.  Anyone playing 18 holes today or tomorrow will play the same side twice.  This aerification is nice because it does a lot of good to the greens without hurting the playability of them.

What a great weekend it was this past weekend with the 2014 Fall Classic taking place.  Thank You to everyone that participated in the SOLD OUT field!  Also Congratulations to Justin Gosa and Matt Ingraham who were the Overall Champions!  Listed below are all the winners!

I am excited to announce that we have hired the latest addition to the GCC Team, Ben Haddad as Director of Turf Management, Grounds and Maintenance. Ben Haddad, a native of West Tennessee has over 21 years experience in the golf industry. Former clubs include RidgePointe Country Club(AR), Olive Branch Country Club(MS),  The Country Club of Little Rock (AR), East Lake Golf Club (GA), Colonial Country Club and Ridgeway Country Club (both in Memphis). Despite being an avid Ole Miss fan, he is a graduate of Mississippi State University's turf grass program. Additionally, he carries a handicap of 5 and, therefore, really knows what golfers want and need. Ben and his crew strive to keep the course in good shape for "duffers" and "scratch players" alike for a membership that likes to play golf year-round. Ben will be a great asset to GCC and will begin on September 1st so please help me give him warm welcome when you see him driving around. 

This week we have another full week of events at GCC with some beautiful weather.  Tomorrow evening we have the GCC 2 Man Member/Member starting at 5:30 pm.  Friday we have a couples scramble that also starts at 5:30 pm.  Finally Saturday we have a parent child with afternoon tee times.

I begin this week's email with some sad news, we are losing one of our own, Doug Estes.  After 5 years at GCC, he has accepted a new position at Windstead Turf Farms.  Doug will be greatly missed!  He will be a tough asset to replace but we will do our best to find a suitable replacement as soon as possible.  Below is a note from Doug.  He will be here for two more weeks, so please feel free to stop by and help us give him a warm sendoff.

 Membership:

 I would like to thank all those who have supported me and staff over the past five years.  I know it has been a challenging journey.  We have accomplished a lot over this time and couldn’t have done it without the support from our ownership.  That support is what makes it hard to announce I will be resigning my position as Golf Course Superintendent in two weeks.  This has been a tough decision and one that will miss a lot about this job.  I wish everyone associated with the club the very best and hope to keep the relationships that have been established. 

 Sincerely,

 Doug Estes

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.

Ball Marks and Divots!

As we move into our busiest part of the golf season, I would like to ask the membership for help with keeping GCC Beautiful. 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!

 

Driving Range Divots!

Need Help from the members!

It is our goal to work as hard as possible Monday - Thursday to have the golf course ready for the weekend. It is also our goal to get out ahead of play every morning to ensure the greens are mowed and course is ready. With that said, I would like to ask that the members please check in before playing and only jump to another hole after asking the golf staff if it's allowable. 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.
