Golf Course Closure due to weather.

Once again this weekend we have some cold temperatures coming, so we will be covering the greens on Saturday afternoon and they will remain covered until Tuesday.  Since the golf course will be closed the entire GCC will be closed on Sunday.  On Tuesday, January 19th we will reopen the clubhouse and resume normal foodservice.  I am excited to see everyone back downstairs and get 2016 officially started!

On Saturday, January 16 the golf course will be open, but the last tee time off #1 tee will be at 12:48 pm.  We will begin covering the greens @ 2 pm in order to get all greens covered before dark.  Please plan accordingly.

GCC's Annual Closing January 1st - January 18th

During the first couple weeks of the year GCC will close the clubhouse for annual maintenance to get ready for the 2016 golf season.  During this time, the golf course will be open if the weather allows and we will have a bartender downstairs for beverage service.  We will have limited food service during this time period. We will have hot dogs, soups, tuna salad and chicken salad sandwiches available. If the weather does not allow us to open the golf course, then entire clubhouse will be closed.  We will update the website if this happens, so please continue to check the website.  On Tuesday, January 19th we will reopen with normal operating hours.  

Winter Weekend Hours!

From now until March 1st we will open the golf shop and clubhouse @ 7:30 am and the first tee time will not be until 8:30 am on Saturday and Sunday.  Please call 754-6453 to make a tee time if you are interested in playing. 

Winter Guest Fee!

During the winter months we allow our golfing members the opportunity to bring out guests for a reduced fee of only $40 plus tax, which includes the cart and green fee.  This reduced price will continue until March 1st 2016.

New GCC Winter Local Rule

This winter we have chosen to go to the 3 hole system on our greens to eliminate the unsightly look of all the old holes on our greens in the spring of 2016.  The way this system works is we have 3 holes on every green and we will rotate between those three holes daily.  The two unused holes have a cover so you will not get confused.  Below is a new local rule we will implement this winter because it is possible putts rolling over the hole covers could change direction. 

Local Rule:  If an old hole is in your intended line of putt, players may move their ball to the nearest point of relief, no closer to the hole.  

Driving Range Plan

With the winter months here and the Bermuda grass in a dormant state we will be on the mats on a more consistent basis.  We will still utilize the grass tee occasionally on days when the weather conditions are perfect!

Please Note:  Range balls are to be used on the driving range only.  Please do not use them on the golf course.  Thank You.

Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  This is my first Get With the "Pro"gram of 2016 and I am excited for a wonderful year.  Currently the GCC clubhouse is in it's annual closing for the first two weeks of the year.  This week we have had both kitchens professionally cleaned and done some painting in the clubhouse.  Our goal is to continue to clean and freshen up the clubhouse to get it ready for a busy 2016! 

We will be back to normal hours starting on Tuesday, January 19th.  We are keeping the golf course open when the weather permits and have a server downstairs to serve members drinks and pre-made sandwiches.  Tomorrow the high is suppose to be 63 degrees so that is a perfect day to play some golf!

I am working on the golf shop schedule and plan on unveiling it on January 19th.  If any members are making plans and need to check any dates, please feel free to email me.

Golf Course Closure due to weather.

This weekend we have some cold temperatures coming, so we will be covering the greens on Saturday afternoon and they will remain covered until Wednesday possibly Thursday.  Since the golf course will be closed the entire GCC will be closed for those days.  Once the golf course returns open, so will the driving range and limited food service downstairs.  We will be watching the forecast closely and update the website accordingly. 

On Saturday we will be open, but the last tee time off #1 tee will be at 1 pm.  We will begin covering the greens @ 2 pm in order to get all greens covered before dark.  Please plan accordingly.

Good afternoon.  I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the great outdoors this past weekend, it was so beautiful.  I very much enjoyed myself and had a priceless moment of teaching Ella and Jace how to throw a curve ball.  I taught them how to do it from a full windup and the stretch.  Not that I'm a great pitcher but moments like that are truly priceless.  Fun Times!

This upcoming weekend although slightly cooler will be another great weekend to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.  Like I have said in previous emails Ben Haddad and his crew have this golf course in great shape so please make plans to come out and play some golf.  This week we have Guest Day on Thursday and it promises to be very nice out with highs in the 60's!

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.
