Thanks WVCC grounds staff for a great year!

Whitemarsh Valley Country Club's grounds staff had a very good year in 2015. Their hard work and dedication reflected on the quality conditions on the golf course. All of these workers have proven time and time again their value to the club. To show appreciation to each employee, they were  given a 20" carry-on suitcase with the Whitemarsh Valley CC logo embroidered. As you can see the smiles on their faces tell the whole story. A special shout out to Jerry Stockmal (senior asst. superintendent) checking out the tensile strength of the carry-on. And Jim Dennison (asst. superintendent) showing off his strength by pressing the suit case over his head.

Practice approaches are closed for the season. Practice bunkers are still open.

With the cooler fall temperatures upon us, the rate of turf recovery has diminished dramatically. With this said, the green committee has recommended the closing the practice approaches for the remainder of the golf season. This will give the turf some time to partially heal before winter. The two practice bunkers will still remain open until the sand freezes.We thank you in advance for your understanding.

Penacale Derby is on.......1 hour delay of tee times

It is not the best of conditions out there with 2.2" of rain falling yesterday. But the greens are firm and as the day goes on the rest of the course should also firm up.

Trying to live with nature.

As much as we work hand in hand with nature, I sometimes wonder why a fox who has 123 other acres to dig for food  must dig up some of our 3 acres of greens. !
