Concerning COVID-19 & Golfer Safety

UPDATED: APRIL 2, 2020

In light of COVID-19, we have decided to start online bookings with pre-payment as well as prepayment over the phone. 

What does this mean for you? What it means is that we are trying to eliminate as many in person transactions as possible. Check in will move to a window in the front of the clubhouse, and we will have FREE pull carts available for anyone who wants to walk.

We apologize, temporarily there are no riding carts available.

If you book online you will be required to prepay at the time of booking. This will help keep you safe, as well as, keep our staff safe during this time.

If you know someone who does not use our website or online bookings, please have them give us a call at 302-703-6662 and we can process their credit card over the phone when they book a tee time.

We are no longer participating in cash transactions, but you may purchase club credit! It is like a gift card but goes directly onto your account and can be used at anytime for almost anything (carts, drinks, snacks, greens fees, etc).

How check in will work:

1. Prebook/Pre call to schedule time and pay.

2. Show up for tee time about 5-10 minutes before your time.

3. Check in with staff AT WINDOW IN FRONT OF CLUBHOUSE.

4. If you are renting a pull cart for free, take any of the ones near the putting green!

5. Play your round! Yay! Fun!!

6. When finished with pull carts, put the pull cart back to where you got it, we will clean it. You may unload your clubs at your car before parking the cart.

Thank you for your continued support. We will get through this together. If you have any questions please give us a call or email us.

Stay safe & healthy.

This year, the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) and PGA Show held their golf conferences at the end of January in Orlando, Florida. With having big goals for the 2020 season here at American Classic, some of the staff members were able to take the trip down. The NGCOA allows golf course owners from all around the world to share creative ideas together to help grow the game that we all love so much. Then from the PGA Show, everyone is able to see the technological advances in golf and how golf brands plan to move forward with their clubs, clothing, and other golfing equipment. 

 

 

 

The first couple of days were dedicated to the NGCOA Conference. At this conference, you get to meet other golf course owners from all around the world, and engage with one another on things that you have success with at your course as well as things you would like to improve upon. It is a wonderful experience to be able to talk with someone from another country or somewhere else in the United States and learn how they are creating a fun environment for golfers in their area. During the conference, you also get to listen to several guest speakers who go into great detail on things that you can improve on at your golf course. After two full days of listening to innovative ideas and creating some of our own, we are excited to say that we have some fun things planned for everyone here at the Classic. 

Once the NGCOA Conference wrapped up, the staff moved its focus to the PGA Show. We all agreed that this was a fun experience since we got to see some of the new technology and designs that well known golf brands are going to be releasing this year.

Not only are well known brands such as Callaway, Cobra, Ping, etc. doing fun things for golf, but there were thousands of smaller businesses with some creative ideas and branding. Because of our time spent at the show, Austin is excited to announce that he will be incorporating more technology into his lessons and clinics, and Britt is planning on bringing in some new brands and designs into the pro shop. 

The American Classic team had a wonderful time at both events, and learned a lot about the golf industry. Our goal is to always have our golfers enjoy their time when they visit us, and everything we learned from this trip will definitely enhance your experience here at the Classic. We hope that you’re just as excited as we are!

Introducing the NEWEST Addition to The Classic!

We now have 4 GolfBoards available for rent at the American Classic Golf Club!

The greatest invention in golf since the graphite shaft, the GolfBoard is forever changing the way golfers experience the game. Powered by an environmentally friendly lithium-ion battery, the GolfBoard is an easy-to-ride fully electric vehicle that adds a whole new level of fun and excitement. Golfers of all ages can now “Surf the Earth” from shot-to-shot in a way that feels like snowboarding or surfing. We call it “GolfBoarding.”

Be sure to give us a call if you have any questions or would like to rent a GolfBoard, we would be glad to help you try out this new & fun way to play golf!

Before you can ride, you must watch a 7 minute long video to familiarize yourself with the GolfBoard. After you watch the video you can then fill out the liability waiver. After you are finished with those, one of our staff members will teach you the controls and how to use the GolfBoard in a quick session before sending you out to golf.
