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.

Wow I can't believe its 2015, and this is my first email of the New Year.  Happy New Year everyone!  Yesterday we reopened after our normal closure for the first 2 weeks of the year.  Our staff worked hard last week painting, cleaning carpets, & cleaning the kitchens in preparation for the 2015 season.

Now we have to get the golf course back open after having the covers on for the past 10 days.  Our plan is to reopen tomorrow morning when the temperatures permit.  We are planning on recovering the greens tomorrow afternoon beginning at 3 pm & starting on hole #1.  If you are interested in playing you will have to tee off by 2 pm.  Friday morning we will once again remove the covers when temperatures permit and this time we hope it's a long time before we need to put them on again.

Finally we have an awesome weekend ahead of us so please make plans to play golf this weekend.  Also we have a Winter Clothing Sale in the GCC Golf Shop with clothing up to 50% off the already low member Price!

Looking forward to 2015!

I am very excited about the 2015 golf season and it will be here before you know.  I am currently in the final stages of planning out the tournament and summer camp schedule so be looking for that soon.

Also in 2015 we have created a Handicap Committee which is going to help our tournaments be more equitable.  In future emails we will begin to unveil our vision.

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!

 

 Push Carts allowed at GCC!

For the first time ever, members are now allowed to use push carts at GCC during the normal walking times.  GCC owns 8 Sun Mountain Push carts that members are welcome to use or members can use their own for a $5 trail fee.

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.

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!

 

Push Carts allowed at GCC!

For the first time ever, members are now allowed to use push carts at GCC during the normal walking times.  GCC owns 8 Sun Mountain Push carts that members are welcome to use or members can use their own for a $5 trail fee.

 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.

Follow Me and GCC on Twitter!

 As always I want to make sure the membership has all the latest information at their finger tips concerning the conditions at GCC! So with that in mind I have created a twitter account so for the latest golf course updates and GCC information so follow me on twitter @PGAPenke.

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.
