WMGA Senior Men’s ‘A’ Team The 2017 Washington Metropolitan Golf Association Senior ‘A’ Team competition matches will begin in April and continue into the first part of May as needed. Division winners will proceed on to play single elimination quarter, semi-final, and final matches. We need the best senior golfers, age 55 and over, to represent Army Navy Country Club. Selection criteria for the team matches will be based on the 1 April 2017 handicaps (which are expected to be current and accurate). All matches are played at scratch. If you have a handicap of 6 or below and are inter- ested in being considered for the team, please contact the team co-captains, Bill Engel at (703) 899-0091 ( ) or Peter Jacobi at (571) 276-6256 ( ).

2017 Adopt-A-Hole Following a very successful program in 2016, we’re looking for some fellow golfers to join us this year in helping to keep our ANCC courses in great condition, despite the 80,000+ rounds per year that we play on them. This is a huge amount of play, and when you play golf, you create divots and ball marks – it’s part of the game. It’s our responsibility as golfers to fix our divots and ball marks – and that is part of the etiquette of the game. Please help us. The Golf & Green Committee sponsors the program, which asks volunteers to pay particular attention to repairing ball marks on the greens and divots on the fairways. The Adopt-a-Hole members would usually simply pay extra attention to their hole during the play of their normal rounds, encouraging other playing partners to help. It does not take long to sweep a green for ball marks or fill a handful of extra divots as you play. We don’t expect perfection each time, but want to work towards making the course better. If a member felt his/her hole needs extra attention, he/she would be free to arrange to work on it when his/her activities would not disrupt the pace of play. Your course needs you. Please help us protect our investment and keep our playing enjoyable. Send us an email at, and we’ll send you the full details.
