Golf Course Reminders

The Senior Men’s Golf Organization (SMGO) invites all ANCC members age 55 and over to participate in our men’s senior golf program in 2018 regardless of handicap. This is organized play that develops new frienships 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. If you were a member in 2017, your membership will be renewed. Sign-ups 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 pjunghans@aol.com 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. Dues cover the cost of the lunch in the Clubhouse at the completion of each of the 14 ABCD Scrambles...best deal in town! Standard cart fees are charged for each event. A $10 entry fee is collected at each event for the prize pool, a dues augmentation and for the cost of coffee and pastries at each ABCD Scramble check-in. In 2009, the VSGA adopted a new handicap revision schedule and active season dates. Virginia no longer observes an inactive season allowing instead for year- round posting. Handicap index revisions will take place on the 1st and 15th of each month throughout the winter months. However, course conditions will dictate when scores can be posted and will be posted in the Golf Shops. Year-Round Handicap Posting

•The water/ice machines and drinking fountains at both courses will be winterized and closed until approximately March 15, 2018. •The restroom at White #3 and #7 at Arlington will remain open through the winter months.

•The restrooms at Red #4 at Fairfax will be open whenever the golf courses are open.


At our Fall Luncheon we honored Nancy Graves (90) and Bobbie Davidson (93). Both past presidents, they have been champion golfers in WGO-18 and more. They have been playing golf more than 70 years, mostly at ANCC, and hope to “hit their age” in 2018. We treasure their contributions and their friendship. New officers were also elected, headed by President Pam Quinn. This holiday season WGO-18 sponsored 25 children from DC’s General Homeless Shelter in Northeast, a shelter bursting with 250 families. Each “adopted” child received warm clothes, toys, and books. We hope our efforts will make their holiday brighter, merrier, and full of hope. Although January is a month of no organized play, Winter Golf is ongoing for those who wish to play. A description and rules in the WGO-18 Booklet can be viewed here . New members are welcome at any time during the year. Please contact Susan Walthall, Membership Chair, at susan.walthall@aol.com . For more information, click here to view the WGO-18 website.
