We currently use the GHIN Handicap Program here at Owensboro Country Club. GHIN is a national handicap program that services over 2 million people at nearly 9700 golf courses nationwide. It allows you to post scores at any GHIN provided golf course in the country. It also allows you to post scores from your home via the internet.
The driving range is a great place to warm up before your round or find a 9-hole game after work. Members can choose to pay for their range balls as they go at $6 a bag or join the Individual Range Membership, Double Range Membership or Family Range Plan. Plans are billed in February each year and entitle any member on the plan to unlimited range balls – a great money saver for those who love to practice on their game.
Range hours vary throughout the year based on the amount of daylight.
Golf Bag Storage
Club storage and golf club cleaning services are provided year round for members and their families. Club storage personnel, or one of your golf professionals, are on duty at all times to transport your clubs to and from the club storage room. The staff will stage your clubs onto your cart before playing, and remove them when you are finished.
When members bring their equipment to the club storage room, they should register their equipment with one of the professional staff. An Owensboro Country Club identification tag will be attached to your bag with your name and storage number. The staff will be happy to assist you before and after your round. Our staff will then clean your equipment and store them until your next round.
Annual Cart Plan
The cart plan has been restructured for the upcoming season. This plan gives a member and his family (who are still covered under the membership) unlimited cart usage – great savings for the regular golfer.
