American Singles Golf Association (ASGA)

The Washington DC Chapter
Singles Golf DC is the Washington DC Chapter of the American Singles Golf Association (ASGA). Originally founded and organized by Rich Wilhelm in 1999, Singles Golf DC has grown to be the premier singles-oriented golf group in the DC area. Currently comprised of single golfers from the Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia area, it is one of the largest and most active ASGA Chapters.
We schedule different types of events throughout the year, although our main focus is golf. These events include outings at local Virginia and Maryland courses, happy hours, golf clinics, and weekend golf trips and monthly social events. During the golf season, golf outings are normally scheduled for Saturday and some Sundays with dinner usually following. We encourage new and seasoned golfers to join our group. Our sole purpose is to provide a venue for local singles to meet and mingle, while enjoying one of the best sports around - golf.
ASGA Chapters are self-managed and self-run, with the direction and support of the National Chapter. All local chapter officers and committee members are unpaid volunteers, who unselfishly devote their time so that all of us can enjoy this golf-oriented singles group. If you want to get involved, we encourage all members to run an event annually – either golf or social. Contact any board member to get started!
Elected positions are held for one year and are filled by a nomination and election process.
Following is a list of our Chapter Positions, as well as the general responsibilities for each of these positions. Details can be found in our bylaws.
The President presides over all official meetings of the club, supervises the affairs of the club and acts as CEO. The President also serves as an ex-officio member of all committees, appoints such committees as authorized by the Board of Directors,prepares and formulates a budget, and plans a smooth transition to the incoming administration.
The Golf Chairs are responsible for planning and scheduling our golf events. All events are run by volunteer Event Coordinators (EC) who do the bulk of the work guided by our EC Guidelines and the Golf Chairs. As you can see by our schedule, we have some amazing Golf Chairs and Event Coordinators!
The Social Chair is responsible for coordinating all socials and related areas. This includes membership meetings, Happy Hours, and special events. Again, our Social Chair relies on volunteer Event Coordinators to fill out our Social Calendar.
