I hope everyone has finished all of their Christmas shopping because there are only two more days to go.  I took my kids to the zoo yesterday so my wife could get some last minute errands done.  It is going to be a great week in the Penke House and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!

GCC will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and will reopen at 8 am on Friday with the golf course opening at 8:30 am.  If you haven't looked at the extended forecast, Friday is supposed to be unbelievable with full sun and 60 degrees!  What a perfect getaway playing golf will be after two busy days with family.

Once again I hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday Season and I look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!.

Covering the Greens in preparation of the Arctic Blast!

Wow it is COLD out today and is only going to get colder.  It is hard to believe it is November looking at the extended forecast but trust me it is.  Unfortunately this means we will have to cover the greens Thursday morning and close the golf course all day Thursday and Friday.  The Driving Range, Golf Shop, & Clubhouse will remain open with normal hours of operation so members looking to get out can at least get a head start on their Christmas Shopping and have a yummy meal!

We are hopeful that we will be able to open the golf course Saturday morning when the temperatures permit, but that will depend if the forecast stays the same.  We will be watching it closely and let the membership know ASAP and post it on the website.

Now, we look forward to warmer future events at GCC.  Please make sure you mark your calendar with the below can't miss festivities.  Please call 754-7241 for more information or to RSVP.

  • Thursday, November 27th - Thanksgiving Dinner at GCC!

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!

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.

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.
