And the New Season Begins…

The all-volunteer WCGA Board is working overtime to post our schedule of upcoming events. WCGA members for the 2016 season just received their first email with some great activities starting with the beginner classes, the 3rd Annual PGA Get Golf Ready reception, and our first “dust off your clubs” outing to Lake Presidential.  This is just a sampling of the events that we’ll be offering this season.  Join WCGA now to take advantage of these golfing opportunities.

If you have suggestions for events you want to see WCGA host, please let us know. As the 2016 season gets underway, I hope to see you out on the course soon! Thank you for being part of WCGA.

We have a full summer season of events planned!

Here are some highlights. We have started Monday league night at East Potomac, with almost 50 members signed up – a great way to start off the work week! We will continue through the summer as “Meet Up Mondays.” We are bringing back the popular “Sunrise Golf” at East Potomac. Early risers gather every other Friday during June and July for nine holes on Friday mornings. All skill levels are welcome.

To practice your swing, we’re teaming up with East Potomac’s Young Professional group to do a monthly “Driving Range Social.” Starting on June 12th, this is perfect for all golfers. You come to mix and mingle while hitting golf balls at the range and enjoying beers after work.

Our clinic co-chairs have been very active by organizing beginner and intermediate clinics, making deals with local PGA pros for one-on-one lessons, and organizing our recent PGA Get Golf Ready Mixer.

Also, in recognition of our 15th year anniversary, a real push this year has been made to supporting women’s golf in the area this year by cosponsoring an upcoming Women’s Golf Month Reception on June 11th, working with PGA on their Get Golf Ready program, and the recent National Golf Day on Capitol Hill.

And finally we have plans for more weekend outings, social events like Ladies Night at National Park, and many more golfing opportunities.

Thanks for your support of WCGA. Best, Sally
