Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a great Easter Weekend.  The GCC Easter Egg hunt was awesome and I enjoyed seeing all the little ones out here.  Easter Brunch was also awesome with over 500 people enjoying some fantastic food.  Ronnie Austin and his staff definitely out did themselves this year.  Great Job!

  • Friday night we have the first couple's scramble of the season.  The night is usually more about the beverages and dinner afterward than the 4 person scramble.  Start time is 5:30 pm.

  • Saturday we have the always popular Chicago Shootout beginning at 8:30 am.  We already have a big field but more teams are welcome.  Please call 754-6453 if you would like to play.

Wow!  Spring hurry up!  I am sure everyone is like me and sick of cold wet weather.  It's hard to find any positives these days and for everyone that knows me that is amazing.  The only thing I can say is that Sunday is March 1st and with every passing day the hope of warmer weather is closer.

Unfortunately we have to cancel Saturday's first golf tournament of the year.  We are hopeful that we will be able to open the golf course Saturday after 15 days of being covered, but the covers will still be on the greens and there would be no possible way to have all 18 holes ready for a morning shotgun.  The next tournament is on March 28th so mark your calendar.

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.
