February 2018 EWGA DC E-Blast
Is it spring, or is the Old Man Winter playing tricks on us? Because the greatest weather forecaster of them all, Mr. Punxsutawney Phil, said 6 more weeks of winter! Let's hope not (plus, Phil's only a groundhog).
Regardless of the weather not making up its mind what season we're in, or Punxsutawney Phil's accuracy, our volunteers have already made up their minds to be grounded in a golf state of mind. A great big thank you to everyone that helped at the Golf Show earlier this month. It was a great event! We chatted with lots of women to inform them about our golf leagues, hopefully, we'll see some new faces this year.
Talking about new faces...mark your calendars for our all-inclusive events: kick-off golf event on April 7 and Par 3 contest on April 28. Bring your friends (male or female), form your own team, have lots of fun. It's our marking of golf season starting!
And let's not forget to register for our Spring Kick-off Brunch. It's March 24 - all the details below.
See you all next month!

New EWGA DC Leagues for 2018
Broad Run Golf and Practice Facility, Bristow, VA
For those of you that want to play on Sundays but can't find the time for a full 18 holes, this is the league for you. This year we have a new Virginia 9-hole Sunday league starting 6 May, playing the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month, with 1:30pm consecutive tee times. G
olfers will find a 75 station, heated all-weather driving range complete with a 2 acre short game practice area and a 10,000 square foot putting area. But it is the golf course that sets Broad Run Golf apart from other practice facilities. Broad Run Golf offers a very challenging, par 35 golf course designed by the renowned architect Rick Jacobson.
Green tees offer a rating of 63.2 and slope of 105, white tee is 60.8 and 100 slope. For a little before or after round fun, try the mini-golf course!
Glenn Dale Golf Club, Glenn Dale, MD
EWGA DC has had a Sunday league at Glenn Dale for years - now we add a 9-hole Monday league.
Glenn Dale is known for it's shortness in length and dramatically pitched greens which will put a premium on your short game. If there is one thing to remember when playing Glenn Dale it's NEVER be above the pin! The white tee rating is 68.0 with a slope of 119 and the red tee are 67.8 and 120. This league begins 16 April with tee times starting at 5:30pm.
New Day (Friday) for Herndon Centennial Golf Club, Herndon, VA
This long-time favorite to many EWGA DC players, we are moving to a different night to play - Fridays, due to inability to get earlier tee times on Wednesdays.
The Herndon Centennial course features 6,445 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 68.7 and it has a slope rating of 116 on Bent grass. Designed by Edmund B. Ault, the Herndon Centennial golf course opened in 1979. This course is great for both walkers and cart riders.
The league begins its season on May 1, with tee times starting at 5:10pm.
