Wishing all WDCGA members a Happy New Year! Along with the January snow, sleet and cold (for some of us!) comes the ever-closer promise of the start of our 2015 golf season. The WDCGA Executive Committee and Standing Committee chairs are already hard at work planning all the details of our team matches and tournaments. We want to give you a heads-up on some of the things you can anticipate this year.
A new feature to help WDCGA members stay abreast of and become more familiar with the rules of golf. Under the direction of WDCGA Rules committee chair Melly Tucker, the WDCGA Rules Committee will post monthly articles reviewing specific rules, and sharing rulings and insights based on questions that arise through the course of the season. Check it out -- "It pays to know the rules"!

Some members may not be familiar with the Intercity - a staple of the District since at least 1953 when the Baltimore Golf Association and the WDCGA began their yearly rivalry. This annual competitive match for bragging rights is open to our most competitive golfers by invitation. The WDCGA Executive Committee selects the Intercity co-captains, who then select the team.
