Nancy Davies Memorial Ice Breaker a Huge Success!
After a dreary, cold winter, Nancy Davies seemed to be smiling down on her inaugural memorial tournament. Although windy and a bit chilly, Saturday, April 11th provided a sunny welcome for the first ever WDCGA weekend tournament. Diane Herndon turned in an excellent round of 79 to win the tournament with a net score of 78, despite the wind and difficult spring course conditions. Nancy's grandson James Lillie, who grew up playing golf with his grandmother, came home from college to present the winners trophy. After golf, most of the field retired to the 1945 grill room to watch the Masters and celebrate a successful beginning to the 2015 WDCGA season!
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"!
Check out the 2015 Schedule for location, fees and information on this coming season’s tournaments. Some additional news:
On July 21st all four cups will be played at Army Navy/Fairfax. This is our first 4-Cup combination. We think it will provide a great opportunity for as many members as possible to come together for great golf and great fun. Plan to join the party!
B, C and D Cup prizes will now be awarded to both gross and net winners. For all Cups the overall winner will be Low Gross, but net prizes will also be awarded.
Calomiris-Church Cup – September 15th at River Bend CC
Please note that this year there is a single shotgun start at 1:00 pm. A box lunch will be provided to make it easier for those folks coming directly from work. Appetizers and a cash bar will be available following play as we gather to award prizes.
July 10th at Woodholm CC in Baltimore
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.
