We are so excited to be a part of this historic moment for this new sport and we hope you can come and join in on the fun.
Okay . . . so everyone knows the saying that you “drive for show, and putt for dough.” But have you ever taken the time to actually think about that statement? Have you ever reviewed your scorecard at the end of your round to compare how many fairways you hit to the amount of putts you had in your 9 or 18 hole round?
Well it’s likely that your putt attempts drastically outnumber your fairways hit and greens hit in regulation, but that’s nothing to be ashamed about! On average for 9 hole rounds, your average golfer will score somewhere between 40 and 60 per Golf Storage Guide. Obviously, everyone would much rather be closer to 40 than 60, but more times than not it comes down to your putting and eliminating those “damn 3 putts.”
Did you know that if you 3 putt on every hole in a 9 hole round that you dedicated 27 strokes alone to just putting? So even if you hit every fairway off the tee and every green in regulation (which we know how hard it is to do consistently), chances are you have 27 putts compared to 13 hit fairways and greens, specifically geared towards playing an absolutely perfect round full swing wise at American Classic G.C. Yes, that would equal to shooting a score of 40, but imagine if those 3 putts become 2 putts? Or even if you simply only 3 putt on half of the holes. Just like that, you are all of a sudden scoring in the 30s per 9 holes just by improving your putting.
If you feel like this hits close to home, please don’t hesitate to reach out to schedule a putting lesson today! It’s very important to have a consistent full swing and to truly know your distances with each club, but the fastest way to improve your scores is by eliminating putts. So wear your Loudmouth clothes, play your music, and have fun when out on the course, but take some time to improve your putting and all of a sudden those clothes, music, and fun vibes feel even greater when you see that you are improving your scores after each round.

American Classic Golfers,
We wanted to take this time to share with you some of the new changes that we will be implementing moving forward. The biggest change that we want everyone to be aware of is that golf check-ins for all golf rounds will now take place at the “Golf Shack” around back. When you book your tee times, check in for your league / tournament play, or are hoping to be able to walk on, you will instead go to the Golf Shack around the back to check in before playing. The “Pro Shop” no longer exists inside the building, and is now known as the Clubhouse. Below is what you will need to know about how the Golf Shack and Clubhouse will operate and what they offer:
Check-in & pay for golf round
Book future tee times
Golf necessities such as golf balls, tees, golf gloves, etc. can be purchased here
Rent golf clubs, flingsticks, electric golf cart, golfboard, or pull cart for your round
Pay for Driving Net balls to practice or warm up
Obtain information on golf lessons & fitness classes
Learn how to become a passholder and to pay your yearly / monthly dues
Gather information on how to host a future event at our course
Buy new grips and have installed for your golf clubs
Merchandise shopping such as logo’d and Loudmouth items
Purchase gift certificates
& all other general information inquiries and guest services
We know that this is a drastic change and that it will take some time getting used to for everyone, but it is a change that we are very much excited about!
Important Note– The Classic Rock Cafe will be closed through January, and will reopen in February.
Thank you all for your continued support, and we hope to see you at the course soon to check out all of the new changes!
-The entire ACGC Staff
