May 2020 Newsletter



Dear Member, Welcome to ANCC’s special edition of its monthly e-newsletter!

We have learned a great deal about social distancing, wearing masks, and the new normal that seems to change every day. The team has put together this special edition e-newsletter which gathers several offerings to the membership in one place. For the month of May, the Club continues to offer special food menus and wine selections for you to simply order online and pick up curbside at both Arlington and Fairfax. The ANCC Market Place in Arlington has been very popular since it first “opened” and we are continuously sourcing new food and pantry selections, as well as preparing ready-to-bake items made by our kitchen. At Fairfax, curbside pick up menus featuring Chesapeake crab cakes and short ribs, among other popular menu selections, are offered Thursday to Saturday. To stay fit and healthy while staying in and keeping to social distancing guidelines, you can workout by streaming online fitness classes and on the ANCC Fitness Channel on YouTube. Golfers can follow along with instructional videos from the pros on exercises at home to strengthen your core and improve performance on the course. Tennis players can practice your footwork drills demonstrated in a video by the pros and participate the “ANCC Skills Challenge Competition.” We will be hosting our first virtual “Author’s Series” via Zoom with author Andrew Och. There are also links in this e-newsletter for online cross word puzzles and sudoku games, as well as gardening tips and virtual book clubs. For the wine lovers, you can watch our virtual wine tasting videos and purchase the accompanying “Tasting Kit.” We are also offering “Art To-Go” collections based on age for our junior members for online order and curbside pickup. Thank you for your continued support of your Club during this time. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon as we work through this together.

A Joke, a Quote and a Hint by Fairfax Head Golf Professional Tyler Tucker, PGA

Joke: What’s the best way to see a bad golf shot? Look up


I found this quote by one of golf ’s all-time greatest particularly fitting in these times: “The most important shot in golf is the next one.” Ben Hogan


Tempo is a critical part of any consistent golf swing and something we can more easily control in our golf games than some things. The best golf swing in the world will be ruined with bad tempo and the worst golf swing in the world will be better with good tempo. For me, the golf swing takes a 3 count in my head: 1-2-3…1-2-3. It takes the 1-2 to get to the top and the -3 is down and through. Find your personal tempo and I guarantee your golf game will be better for it. For more information about this click here to see some of Nick Faldo’s thoughts on tempo.

Must See Golf Movies Haven’t seen all the great golf movies? Check out these if you haven’t done so yet: THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE - During the Great Depression, Georgia socialite Adele Invergordon (Charlize Theron) announces a publicity-garnering high-stakes match at her struggling family golf course, featuring the greatest golfers of the era. Once-promising local golfer Rannulph Junuh (Matt Damon), whose career and life were derailed by World War I, is brought in to play alongside the stars, but his game is weak - until the enigmatic Bagger Vance (Will Smith) offers to coach him back into the great golfer he once was. Click here to play the trailer. HAPPY GILMORE - All Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) has ever wanted is to be a professional hockey player. But he soon discovers he may actually have a talent for playing an entirely different sport: golf. When his grandmother (Frances Bay) learns she is about to lose her home, Happy joins a golf tournament to try and win enough money to buy it for her. With his powerful driving skills and foulmouthed attitude, Happy becomes an unlikely golf hero - much to the chagrin of the well-mannered golf professionals. Click here to play the trailer. BOBBY JONES: STROKE OF GENUIS - This biographical drama is based on the true story of revered golfer Bobby Jones (Jim Caviezel). Rising quickly from amateur to legend, Jones becomes renowned for his intense persona and wins an extraordinary number of tournaments. When it appears that Jones is having problems balancing his golfing career with the rest of his life, he consults his devoted wife, Mary (Claire Forlani), and must make the difficult decision of staying in the game or retiring.

TIN CUP - Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) was a golf pro with a bright future, but his rebellious nature and bad attitude cost him everything. Now working as a golf instructor, he falls for his newest pupil, Dr. Molly Griswold (Rene Russo), a psychiatrist who happens to be the girlfriend of PGA Tour star and Roy’s rival, David Simms (Don Johnson).

But thanks to the love and support of his fans, Hogan ultimately recovers and happily resumes his legendary career.

SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA - Luke Chisholm (Lucas Black) is a young golfer who’s about to take a swing at the big time. Luke, however, has a big blowup that makes national news, drives away his father/coach, and seemingly scuttles his once-promising career. While driving along a Texas backroad, Luke crashes through the fence of eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). Johnny makes Luke an irresistible offer: spend a week with him in the tiny town of Utopia and see if Luke can change his life. Click here for the trailer.

THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED - Blue-collar Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf ) fights class prejudice while mastering golf, a game guarded by the upper crust. Employed as a caddy at the exclusive Brookline Country Club, Francis fine-tunes his skills during off hours. His father, Arthur (Elias Koteas), disapproves, but a few admirers help Francis enter the 1913 U.S. Open. The underdog competes against British star Harry Vardon (StephenDillane) and finds common ground with his boyhood idol. The film is based on a true story. Click here to play the trailer.

Overview of Tennis Play and Instruction

Overview of Instructional Services 1. Each pro will be assigned their own teaching cart of balls and will periodically spray down balls with disinfectant. 2. Pros must wash or sanitize hands before and after each lesson and wipe down bench areas and gate entrances. 3. Only pros will be allowed to touch teaching cart balls. Ball pickups will be conducted by the pros. Those members wishing to work on their serves must bring their own balls to be used and removed after the lesson. 4. Lesson groups will be restricted to a maximum of four students. 5. Pros will strictly monitor spacing between students at all times. Member lesson-takers are reminded to: 1. Call the pro shop for lesson court assignment and make every effort to go directly from car to their assigned lesson court. 2. Wash/sanitize hands before and after each lesson. 3. Never touch a teaching car ball or stray ball from another court with their hands. 4. Be conscious of spacing between themselves and other participants and remain apart during breaks and ball pickups. 5. Leave the court and facility promptly after each lesson and strictly avoid all extracurricular, social activity or other congregation before and after their lesson.

Overview of Outdoor Play Members must: 1. Head straight to their cars to their assigned court. Members are encouraged to call the Tennis Pro Shop for court assignment. A strict 10 or less person rule remains in effect for the Tennis Pro Shop at all times. 2. Wash hands before and after play. 3. Do not spend time socializing and chatting during change-overs between games. Immediately move to your position on the court and resume play, or take a short rest while adhering to the six foot social distancing rule. 4. Bring enough marked/distinct balls so each player on court only touches their set of balls (except for members of the same immediate family). 5. Promptly leave the premises following play. Indoor Tennis will remain closed and visitor/guest play is suspended until further notice. The Tennis Committee has published the following safety policies and rules governing outdoor tennis play and instruction at ANCC:

One of the most important shots to master is the serve given that it starts and sets the tone for every point. To develop a consistent serve it is essential that one also has mastered a consistently placed service toss. Yet, the service toss is one of the least practiced skills.
