If you struggle to find the perfect gift for the golfer in your family consider a gift certificate at BTCC. Gift certificates can be purchase and redeemed for golf, carts, range, food or proshop merchandise.

Another great idea is one of the new GPS handheld devices from Sky Golf. A few members already have one and love it. The price is $339 and more information is available at The device is simple to use and our course information can be downloaded from their website. The USGA has changed the rules for 2006 to allow clubs to make a local rule allowing GPS devices in competition.
