Golf Season is Here! On April 3rd, we had a very successful annual membership lunch on Capitol Hill where we approved the new Board and shared upcoming calendar of events.
Please check our events page for several exciting opportunities such as member-only clinics, Spring League, weekend golf outings, and “Thursday Buckets and Buds” Driving Range nights.”
Sign up now for these events as we start the season. And, bring a friend or colleague to an event if they might be interested in learning more about WCGA. Most WCGA members say they learned about WCGA from another member, so the organization is counting on you to keep spreading the word.
If you haven’t renewed your membership or are interested in joining, please click on the Membership tab to become a member or renew your membership. WCGA dues are $30 per year.
A few WCGA members have been spending time helping with the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf program run through The First Tee of DC. The program can always use more volunteers!
Girls Golf is a program that reaches girls ages 7-17 and teaches them not only how to play the game of golf, but life lessons that will help them to face their future as confident and empowered individuals. Recent events have included meeting with the Georgetown Women’s Golf Team, a money management session, and a putting lesson with the LPGA. Upcoming outings include a museum visit, Embassy Row tour and a driving range visit.
If you would like to get involved as a volunteer and mentor in the Girls Golf program, please contact Michael Pius at The First Tee of DC at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also get updates on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lpgausga.girlsgolf.
As soon as we have all the details for registration, sponsorships and more, we’ll send those around and update the website. However, to help you plan ahead, the annual Women in Government Relations and Women’s Congressional Golf Association golf tournament to benefit The First Tee of DC will be Thursday, October 18. The tournament this year will be back at Potomac Ridge in Waldorf, MD and is open to members and non-member, men and women.
Keep an eye out for all the details, including registration and sponsorship information. In the meantime, if you (or your employer) are interested in sponsoring or you know of other potential sponsors we should hit up, please let me know. We always have great prizes and raffle items at the tournament (it’s fun to have lot of winners), so if you have any good contacts who would be willing to donate golf items, gift cards, wine, dinners or whatever for the raffle, we’re always looking for those too.
Mark your calendar for October 18 and make plans to join us for a fun fall golf outing that benefits a great cause. Finally, if you would like to help get the tournament organized, we would love to have your assistance — just let me know at email@example.com
