Get with the "Pro"gram!
 
Good morning!  It was nice to have a dry golf course this past weekend.  Carts were off the path and I had forgotten what it was like to hit off solid turf.  Looking at the 15 day forecast after today we have a nice stretch of 60-70 degree days.  Before long we will once again have a green golf course. 

This weekend we have our first Member golf tournament of the year.  It looks like it's going to be a nice day on Saturday with Sunshine and 69 degrees.  There is still room in the event so if you would like to sign up or get more information please call the golf shop @ 754-6453.  We have also posted the sign-up for the Chicago Shootout so you can sign  up for that as well.

Covering Greens today:

With a forecasted low of 31 degrees and a possible heavy frost, we have decided to cover the greens today.  We are excited on how the greens have started to green up, and do not want the cold temperatures to set us back.  We are eager to start getting these greens smooth and fast.  The first tee will close at 3:30 pm today, so our staff can get all 20 greens covered before dark.  Thank You in advance for your cooperation.

PGA Junior League
 
It is time to build our 2018 GCC PGA Junior league team.  Last year we finished 4 & 1 one and our kids helped the West TN team finish second in State!  PGA Junior League is like having a little league baseball team but with golf.  The season begins in early June with practices.  Matches will begin in mid-late June and the season will end in late July.  Our team is open to all GCC junior golfers ages 8-13.  The cost is $150.  Please call 754-6453 to let us know if you have a junior golfer that is interested in playing. 

 
We have updated our website with the 2018 golf events, so feel free to check it out and mark your calendars.

Getting Fit @ GCC!

Have you ever heard the saying maybe it's not the Indian its the arrow?  When it comes to golf equipment, that might be the case.  If your equipment is not properly fit to your golf swing and body type, it could be almost impossible to hit a golf ball straight.  We would love to schedule a time to make sure your equipment is properly fit for you or fit you for new clubs.  Please call 754-6453 so we can fit you today!

Handicap Committee

The function of the Handicap Committee is to provide an even playing field for all of our members. Playing in a tournament with participants having CORRECT handicaps makes the competition fair and equitable to everyone.
 1)    Members are not to post their own scores
  1. The pro shop personnel must post all scores
  2. After the 5th time the member will not be allowed in any of club tournaments.
2)     Members are to turn in the score sheet to the pro shop after the round so their scores can be posted.
  1. After the 3rd time a member dozen't turn in the score sheet, the pro shop will post the best score of the last 20 scores for their handicap every time a sheet is not turned in.
3)      Away Scores:
  1. If a member plays at another course they can turn in that score card to the pro shop and have it posted.
  2. If the member would like to post the score instantly please take a picture of the scorecard and text or email it to the pro shop.
4)      Playing alone:
  1. in 2016 the USGA implemented a new rule where players can no longer post a score if they play by themselves.  Someone must attest to a score for it to be considered a legal score
