Welcome to the 2019 Season!
I am honored to be the president of the VSWGA for 2019. We are such a unique organization and are fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers who make our organization work.
We have four exciting new initiatives this year:
We are offering the option to play from forward tees at eight clubs this season. This is a pilot program for one year which we hope will encourage our members to continue to play with us and invite previous members to come back to the VSWGA.
Bring A Friend
The program will be expanded to include all courses, including those with forward tee choices. Let’s invite potential players and show them how exciting it is to play our State Days. We want to increase our membership. New players joining our current members is the best way to introduce them to the VSWGA.
New Web Site
The new web site will make it easier to access information, get the latest news, and learn about upcoming events. It is the portal to Golf Genius and State Day results. You may send any comments or suggestions to the web administrator.
2019 is the year of extensive changes to the Rules of Golf. We have started with a bi-monthly rules email to all our members. Rules seminars will be offered in the spring to make sure all have access to the new rulings. See the Rules of Golf page for links to the 2019 USGA Rules of Golf.
Also, we will start to plan our 90th birthday party for 2020!!! We will be seeking your input on how to celebrate this landmark event.
We hope for good weather and lots of play days this summer.
