Get with the "Pro"gram!

Good afternoon,
 
Today is the second day of Spring and the temperatures sure show it.  What a beautiful day we have with highs reaching almost 80 degrees.  Also with it staying light out late "NOW" is the time to start working on your game and knock the winter rust off your game.

At GCC we have three instructors with myself, Austin Chinn, and Gathon Garriga.  Listed below are our hourly rates and contact information.  Please feel free to contact one of us, and let a trained instructor help you lower your handicap.  It's always good to practice, but the only way to improve your game is to "practice with a purpose".

Keith Penke - (901) 827-6015 - $80/Hour
Austin Chinn - (901) 230-6147 - $70/Hour
Gathon Garriga - (770) 617-8819 - $60/Hour

If individual lessons aren't for you, I have my Spring clinics beginning tonight so please call 827-6015 if you are interested in signing up!

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!

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
