Cold Weather Again!

Yes, today makes the third straight week we have seen patchy frost and temperatures drop in the 30's.  I'm sorry but that just seems crazy for April 25th.  Todays conditions are still pretty wet and hopefully the weekend rain is minor.

The greens are going to get there soon!  Unfortunately, with these temperatures it delays the growth needed for good density.  A positive we received yesterday was that after a 1.5" rain our greens were dry enough to mow by lunch.  That would not have happened this time of year with our greens already soft.  We assume the Dry Ject aerification done a couple weeks ago is to thank.  already.  We started mowing greens at lunch yesterday after a 1.5" rain.  I meant to attach this picture of the Dry Ject process on Tuesday.  Notice the dyed green sand which shows the depth and uniform column of sand injected into the greens.

Thanks,

Doug Estes

 

 

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.
