5 8 t h a n n u a l Member Guest golf tournament

Don’t miss out on a great experience of playing local country club courses. If you are 55 or older, you can become a member of the NVRMGA and do just that! ANCC will field two separate teams, one at Arlington and one at Fairfax. Both teams are always looking for new players. The ANCC Arlington team was the league champion in 2010 and 2015 and the ANCC Arlington and Fairfax teams were co-champions in 2011. In 2017, the ARL team was again crowned League Champion! And the FFX team finished in a tie for sixth place. Both teams are looking forward to successful seasons in 2018. The 2018 ANCC teams will be put together within the next few months, so there is still plenty of time for you to sign up. HOW? Just sign up here before 31 January 2018 for the ARL Team and here by 1 March 2018 for the FFX Team or by visiting the NVRMGA page under Golf Organizations. Even if you were a NVRMGA player last year, it is required you sign-up again this year. A contact list will be posted on the golf bulletin board in each ANCC pro shop whereby eligible ANCC golfers not currently part of a team, but wishing to join us in 2018, can express interest. How does NVRMGA work? New in 2018, the League will be organized into 3 regions - Eastern, Central and Western with ARL in the Eastern and FFX in the Central. We will play each of 10 opposing teams twice, once at home and once away between early April and late September. The League Champion will be determined by a four-team playoff (three region champions and one wildcard team) during the first two weeks of October. Play is on Thursdays, teeing off at 8:45 AM. As a team member, you will be assigned to play in at least 6 matches and have the opportunity to volunteer as a substitute for matches to which you are not assigned. A schedule will be available in early February for ARL and early March for FFX indicating which matches you have been assigned. These are handicap matches - no need to worry about your current handicap index. If you would like more information for ARL , please contact Mike Downs (703) 317-1822 Nick Fritz (703) 553-4435 Jim Schroeder (703) 237-1939 For FFX information, please contact Verne Wattawa (703) 433-9279 Rich Barkell (703) 442-0932 Mike Golembieski (703) 643-1444 Please sign-up as soon as possible!

This is organized play that develops new friendships and enhances your enjoyment of the game of golf and Club facilities. The SMGO program features an ABCD scramble at 8:30 AM on the first and third Wednesday of each month at the ARL course commencing in April through October. Other tournaments may be scheduled when play dates are available. All ANCC members are welcome regardless of their handicap. If you were a member in 2017, your membership will be renewed. Sign-ups for new SMGO members will be posted in the ARL Golf Shop by December 1, 2017. If you do not want to participate in 2018, please indicate your decision to be deleted on the sign-up sheet or you may contact Peter Junghans at or (703) 836-7966. New members who may be leaving the area for the winter are encouraged to sign-up prior to departing. The 2018 dues will be set prior to the opening of the season.

A $10 entry fee is collected at each event for the prize pool, a dues augmentation and for the cost of coffee and pastries available at each ABCD Scramble check-in.
