Although it may still be a while before the first tee time is made this spring at Washington (D.C.) Country Club, a newly elected Board of Directors has been actively working on ways to improve the club through the winter months. Along with looking to make changes to the course and clubhouse, Board President Mike Chestnut told the Washington Times-Herald that he hopes to make the image of the club one of inclusiveness and fun.
“We want to get people playing in town,” said Chestnut. “We want to get the kids playing and we want to try and have more fun types of competition for our members. One of the things we are looking at doing is setting up a ‘Ryder Cup type-event’ between our two mens’ leagues. We are also moving the Washington Open back to June.”
Among other draws will hopefully be Mulligans—the newly named restaurant and bar that was formally the Elks located on the course. The course is also looking to have some renovations done in different stages over the next few seasons.
