I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend it was so nice to see everyone at the Easter Egg hunt Saturday.  My family and I had a wonderful weekend and Thankfully the Easter Bunny made an appearance at the Penke house. 

With nice weather finally here we have some fun events planned.  Tomorrow night we have our first GCC 2 Man Member Guest of the season where Members are welcome to bring a guest out to play in the event for just a cart fee!  Please make sure you bring $30 cash to pay the entry fee but be ready to hopefully win that back after a good round.  Please call 754-6453 to sign up because this event is sure to sell out!

Thursday is guest day where members are welcome to bring out guests for only $40 plus tax which includes the guest and cart fee. Unfortunately we will be aerifying the fairways on the back nine so only the front nine will be open.  

Friday evening we have a couples scramble that will begin at 5:30 pm.  The format is a 4 person scramble so call another couple and sign up for an evening of fun!

Please keep the Carts on the Path around Tees and Greens!

I would love to ask the members for help in keeping GCC Beautiful! As you approach the greens and get 20 yards from the putting surface please take your cart back to the path. After you finish on the green please keep your cart on the path until you finish hitting your tee shot on the next hole. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

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.

It seems like every Tuesday I am emailing you after bad weather and this week is no different.  Currently, all the greens are covered and will remain covered today in preparation for hopefully the last cold night.  We are planning on uncovering all the greens tomorrow when the temperatures permit and reopening the golf course.  The rest of the week looks very nice so we look forward to seeing everyone on the links.

Last July, we welcomed Doug Luebbert to our GCC family. Recently, he was offered another position at Memphis Invest. We are very appreciative of his time at GCC and wish him the best going forward.

Welcome Cody Schwanke!

I am very excited to announce a new member of the GCC Professional Golf Staff, Cody Schwanke, who started last Thursday!  Cody, who some of you might remember from his days of working on our cart staff during high school, just graduated from Mississippi State University and is excited to start a new career as a Golf Professional.  During his time at Mississippi State, he completed one golf internship working for Walt Disneyworld.  He is registered with the PGA and will continue his education at GCC towards becoming a PGA Member.  Cody will bring tons of energy and professionalism to GCC and will be a wonderful member of the GCC family!

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.
