December 2018 Newsletter




The Senior Men’s Golf Organization (SMGO) invites all ANCC members age 55+ to participate in our men's senior golf program in 2019. This is organized play that develops new friendships and enhances your enjoyment of golf and Club facilities. The SMGO program features an ABCD scramble at 8:30 AM typically on the 1st and 3rd 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 2018, your membership will automatically be renewed for 2019. A sign-up list for new members will be posted in the ARL Golf Shop by December 1, 2018. If you do not want to participate in 2019, please indicate your decision to be deleted on the sign-up sheet at the ARL Golf Shop 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 2019 dues level will be set prior to the opening of the season. Dues cover the cost of lunch in the Clubhouse after each of the 14 ABCD deal in town!! Standard cart fees are charged for each event in which a member participates. A $10 entry fee for the prize pool and the cost of coffee and pastries available at each ABCD Scramble is collected at check-in for each scramble.

As part of our ongoing effort to improve the quality and consistency of our golf course playing conditions, the Golf & Green Committee approved the following action at the business meeting held on 8 November 2011. Winter play course set up at ANCC will commence on or about Saturday, 1 December and remain in effect until approximately Friday, 1 March each season. During this time only 2 sets of tee markers will be placed on each hole – 1 forward and 1 back. In many cases, artificial mats will be placed on the teeing ground. When this option is utilized, all players should play from the mat and refrain from use of the grass teeing ground. We believe that this course of action will minimize winter damage, promote faster recovery and provide superior playing conditions during the golf season, generally March through October. The Committee thanks you for your support. On Wednesday, 7 November, CWGO celebrated another successful season with our End of Year Dinner and elected Our 2019 Board. Emily McGee will serve as Vice President; Rebecca Gansca will lead Membership; Sherrie Balko will join Special Events as a Co-Chair; and Amy DeWitt will serve a second term as Treasurer. A huge thank you to our departing board members Bev Winston, Tina Gwilliam, and Cheryl Watson. Congratulations to the Most Improved Golfers of 2018, Shara Fordyce and Cheryl Gallagher. Shara reduced her handicap from 22.4 to 16.8 GHIN. Cheryl reduced hers from 33.1 to 29.6 GHIN. Our Ringer winners are as follows: ARL Red: 1st G-Bev Winston, 1st N-Leah Little.
