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!

 
Please Note "GCC Pace of Play Policy":  Now that we are in the heart of the golf season, the golf course is very busy.  In an effort to help create a positive experience for everyone, we ask that all members abide by the below pace of play policy.

All groups complete their round of golf in 4 hours or less. 
At the 1 hour mark you should be in 5 fairway, 2 hour mark 9 green, and the 3 hour mark 14 fairway. 
Finally, always be aware of where the group ahead of you is and always stay a half of a hole behind them. 
 
Thank You for your support,
Keith Penke

Every Thursday is Guest Day!
 
Today marks the end of the reduced winter guest fee.  Our normal Guest fee returns to $60 plus the $18 cart fee if a golf cart is used. 

In 2017, we are going to offer the membership an opportunity for a more price conscious fee every Thursday during the golf season.  On Thursdays the fee will be $40 plus tax and that fee includes the cart and green fee.  Please remember that in town guests can only play twice a month.  Thanks and I look forward to seeing everyone on the links in 2017!

GCC Custom Nametags

Have you ever lost your golf club or rangefinder and thought, I wish I had my name on it?  Well now is your chance to put your contact information on all of your equipment with custom GCC name tags.  We can even do custom logos with the proper artwork. (Extra Design & Color Fees May Apply).  For only $14.95 you can have the peace of mind, and not have to spend $300 next time you leave your rangefinder in the fairway.  Order yours today by emailing me @ http://kpenke@germantowncountryclub.com

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
