Needwood Golf Course
6724 Needwood Road
Derwood, MD 20855

You have two choices and both are winners:

1. You can opt for a round of 18 holes on the beautiful and playable 18 hole course with first T-time at 12:00.
2. Take a chipping and putting lesson with one of the Needwood pros and play 9 holes on the "Executive Course." Lesson starts at 1:00.

One of Montgomery County's public courses, Needwood Golf Course sits within the Montgomery County Parks system and offers an 18 hole course that is challenging for experienced but fun for players at all levels (large greens and wide fairways) and in great shape. Needwood also offers a 9 hole “executive course” (7 par 3s; 2 short par 4s) that is an outstanding layout for the beginner or the experienced golfer looking to sharpen their short game. The practice area offers a driving range and putting and chipping greens. This is a course that we enjoyed last year and expect it to be no different this time.

Don't delay signing up. This is a popular event.

Date: Saturday, April 20, 2012

Start Times: On the 18 hole course start at 12:00 PM.

Number of Players:
18 holes - 20 players, 10 women, 10 men
Lesson plus 9 holes on the Executive Course - 12 players, 6 men, 6 women

Format: Play your own ball or for you beginners consider playing off the best shot in your group (it keeps things moving and you have more fun)

Après golf: We expect that both groups will finish at about the same time. So, there will be tall tails, small lies, drinks in the club house then dinner at a near-by restaurant.
