20 Posts for 20 Years Series – Post #5
Over the last two decades we have fostered incredible relationships with the Private Member Clubs of the area. Whether they were hosting our donors for a fundraiser or our kids for a Play Day, these clubs have done a tremendous job of supporting us and the mission that is the core of what we do.
Just last year, Congressional Country Club hosted us for their Junior League clinic with Rory McIlroy to celebrate his honorary membership to the club! The clubs that have hosted our amazing young people for Play Days include, but are not limited to, Belle Haven Country Club, Caves Valley Golf Club, Chevy Chase Club, Columbia Country Club, International Country Club, Lakewood Country Club, Manor Country Club, Mount Vernon Country Club, Riverbend Golf & Country Club, Springfield Country Club, Woodmont Country Club and The Country Club at Woodmore. Bethesda Country Club, Chevy Chase Club, and Woodmont Country Club have also been kind enough to host our older participants for their winter Raise the Bar program. While in the program, the kids received instruction from the Head Golf Professionals, Directors of Instruction and the Assistant Golf Professionals. And this year, Woodmont Country Club is hosting older participants weekly between April and October so that they may learn from their incredible instructors and play alongside their junior golfers. Among these thirteen clubs we have hosted our fundraisers, in addition to our Annual Argyle Pro-Am that’s held at Argyle Country Club.
Our participants have also benefited greatly from the generous donation drives that Bethesda Country Club, Country Club of Fairfax, River Creek Club, Trump National Golf Club and Woodmont Country Club have hosted over the years. International Country Club hosts a weekend just for us called The First Tee Weekend so that our young people may benefit from the clubs, clothing, accessories and more that their members donate each year.
Over the last four years we have been fortunate enough to host our Core Values Cup at Chevy Chase Club, Trump National Country Club, Woodmont Country Club, Bethesda Country Club, and this year at the home of the 2018 Core Values Cup Champions, International Country Club. And, finally, in 2018, Four Streams Golf Club in Beallsville, MD donated the golf course for the Connolly Cup.
We are so grateful for their involvement, commitment, dedication, and impact on our young people and our mission. We hope we can continue our incredible relationships during the next 20 years.
