Nine holes and lunch. It has been a long time since Westminster has had a golf outing. Some folks talked about organizing one this spring, and the Westminster Fellowship Golf Outing for 2018 was born! So we are calling all Westminster golfers, novices, skilled players, and everything in between: you are invited to play in a 9-hole golf outing that promises fun and fellowship on the golf course. To encourage participation at all levels of play, this event will be a team better-ball scramble as described below with other information on the registration process, lunch and prizes to be awarded. We hope you will join us on September 17 for a half day to get to know more Westminster folk while golfing – or even to share Westminster hospitality with a friend. The venue is West Chester Golf & Country Club, 111 W Ashbridge St, West Chester, PA 19380.

Will I fit in? If you are a man or woman who has hit a bucket of balls or played a round of golf within the last 10 years, this outing is for you. The event is being planned to welcome golfers of all skill levels.

What will the outing be like? The day will begin with check in at the West Chester Golf and Country Club at 8:45 a.m. There will be a shot gun start for 9 holes of play at 9:30. The golf format is a scramble – a team event – so if you have some bad shots, you can lean on your teammates. Just for fun, some individual contests will be included as well. The focus will be on having a good time and not on stressing over golf abilities. Lunch and awards will follow in the clubhouse around noon.

What about lunch? A buffet lunch of hot pasta, salad, rolls and grilled chicken will be served in the club house following play. The menu has been designed to satisfy a variety of preferences and appetites. Team and individual prizes will be awarded during lunch.

How do I sign up? Registration for the event is being handled with electronic payments through the Westminster website here. $60 will cover the cost of golf, cart fees, prizes, and lunch.

What is the deadline for signing up? The field size is limited to 40 golfers, so register online as soon as you can to secure a spot. We expect the outing to be fully subscribed, so please don’t wait to sign up. We’re looking forward to seeing you out on the course!
