It is never too late to play your first game of golf. If you have plans to step out on the course, use this guide to figure out how to navigate each hole so you have a successful first round:
Do Not Feel Like You Need All the Clubs
When you are first starting out on the golf course, you do not have to carry around all 14 clubs that fit into your bag. You should definitely have a driver, a putter, and a sand wedge to start out. You can also try out the 6-iron, the 8-iron, and a pitching wedge as you get used to the feel of swinging a club.
Learn the Difference Between a Pitch and a Chip
Both the pitch and the chip are short shots to take when you are near the green, but they are used for different reasons. You should chip the ball when you want it to stay close to the ground. This shot is best when you are just hitting the ball onto the green without any obstacles. Use the pitch shot when you want to send the ball higher to send it over something or when you want it to travel faster.
Practice Golf Etiquette
Even during your first game, there are certain rules of etiquette that you should follow while on the golf course. Try not to take too long during each shot. This does not mean you need to rush through every hole, just that you should not spend too long figuring out how you are going to hit the ball. You should also stand a little bit to the side and slightly behind the person who is taking a shot.

You might have already started planning your holiday party. In between organizing all of the details for your seasonal celebration, it is important to remember to send out invitations so your guests can make plans to attend your party. Use this guide to determine when to send your holiday party invites:
If you are planning an actual Christmas party, you should send the invitations out one month before the party date. If you are looking to throw a more casual party, you can get away with sending out the invitations about two weeks before the party. For a cocktail party, you should give your guests between one and four weeks’ notice.
Reserve the banquet hall at Chevy Chase Country Club now for your holiday party so you can organize the rest of the details for the event. Our beautiful venue is the perfect location for your social and corporate holiday celebrations. To learn more about our venue or our golf course, visit us online or call (224) 900-2036.

It is already the season for holiday party planning. If you are in charge of organizing a holiday party for a corporate or social occasion, use the following tips to reduce your stress levels throughout the planning process while putting together a fun and welcoming event:
Choose the Perfect Venue
Find a party venue with a banquet hall that provides amenities that make it much easier to plan your celebration. With a dedicated staff and space for all of your guests, planning a holiday party at an off-site venue makes it much easier to put together an event. Since the staff sets up the party and cleans up when it is over, choosing a separate venue as the party location significantly reduces your workload.
Send Invitations Early
It is a good idea to start planning your party as soon as possible so you can start to send out invitations. If you can give your guests enough time to RSVP, you will have a better idea of your final headcount before the day of the party. This makes it much easier to organize the last details without stress.
Create a Theme
Adding a theme to a party is a great way to simplify the planning process. Whether you want to organize a Winter Wonderland or create a theme based on one of your favorite holiday movies, coming up with a connective thread makes it easier to finalize all of the details for your party. You can use the theme to come up with a menu, to find decorations, and to make invitations.

As you make your way to all of the holiday parties on your calendar this season, try not to bring a cliché bottle of wine as a hostess gift. Instead, get creative by buying a platter and filling it with homemade cookies. Include some napkins on the platter so the hostess can serve the cookies right away.
You might also want to consider giving a nice bottle of dipping oils or some hand soap and a moisturizer for the kitchen. Check out this video for more hostess gift ideas.

Before you can make any plans about your wedding, you have to decide when you want to tie the knot. The season in which you plan your wedding has a big impact on the overall look and feel of the day. Keep reading to find out why you should reserve your wedding venue during the fall for a beautiful, seasonal celebration:
Stunning Backgrounds for Your Wedding Pictures
As colder weather moves in and the leaves start to change, fall provides some of the most unique and beautiful natural beauty out of any season. Even if your wedding reception venue is inside, you, your new spouse, and your wedding party can head outside with the photographer to snap some beautiful shots of your special day. Whether the leaves are still on their trees or they have already started to flutter to the ground, you are bound to get some great backgrounds for your wedding pictures.
Comfy, Cozy Accents
Think about the blissful coziness of lighting a fire or some scented candles at your wedding reception venue. Fall elicits feelings of cuddling up with a warm beverage. If you love pumpkins, apples, and other fall accents, planning your wedding during the autumn gives you the chance to incorporate them into your décor.
Summer weddings might come with hot weather, but that also means humidity. If you do not want to sweat off your makeup or to ruin your wedding hair with frizz, you might want to think about throwing your wedding in the fall. The cooler temperatures give you more variety when it comes to choosing your wedding look.
No matter what you want to plan your wedding, Chevy Chase Country Club is here with the best wedding venue in Wheeling. With a picture-perfect golf course and a fully equipped banquet hall, we can easily meet all of your wedding needs.
