Due to the latest government guidelines to house in place in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and to help ensure the health of our community, the Board has made the decision to close the club until Gov. Hogan lifts restrictions he has in place. We will reevaluate this precautionary posture as this situation evolves and once we feel our members may safely enjoy the club once again without fear of transmitting Covid-19 to one another we will re-evaluate an opening date
