Outdoors

Golf 18-Hole

We are a group of supportive golfers who welcome players of all levels, and who have a general knowledge of golf rules, pace of play, and golf etiquette.

We play every Thursday from April to October at nearby golf courses, weather permitting. Our objective is to have fun, and to enjoy the outdoors and each other while playing. We are happy to welcome new members to our group.

Groundbreakers

Groundbreakers is designed for learning about, appreciating, and engaging in indoor and outdoor gardening—in yards large and small; in pocket parks; and on patios, decks, and balconies.


Once a month, members visit arboretums, plant nurseries, or gardens in the region; attend workshops and presentations; or visit each other’s spaces to experience their successes and help with challenges—no judgement involved, strictly for learning and ‘growing’ in good company!


The chair distributes resources and news regularly via email and on a private Facebook group.


Topics that may be addressed along the way include--

  • Maryland native plants
  • rain gardens and conservation planting
  • planting with critters in mind (including those pollinators)
  • electing, planting, and maintaining plants
  • opportunities to garden in the community
  • designations such as ‘wildlife friendly’ or ‘baywise’

The group meets indoors and outside, sometimes carpooling. We follow the COVID policy of New Annapolitans and encourage members to do anything more that makes them feel safer--masking, testing, and practicing social distancing.


New Annapolitans - New Adventures (NANAs)

Join us for weekly walking opportunities throughout the year! This group is a great place to meet new friends, learn about the area, and experience a new adventure. Tuesday and Wednesday walks can be between 3-5 miles depending on the venue and leader (and sometimes, weather).

Tuesday walks vary in destination from Annapolis to county parks further afield. They can be a walk through a wooded path or through a neighborhood with stunning vistas. The Wednesday group walks are an opportunity to see the various neighborhoods in the Annapolis area.  The pace is moderate to fast and walks range from trail walking to pavement walks.


COVID POLICY:

1. Location: Outdoors

2. Masking policy: No masks required

3. Social distancing policy: Social distancing not enforced

4. Proof of vaccination status policy, (Honor system, yes or no): Honor system for vaccinations

Tennis

The Tennis Group meets every Monday morning all year. Our games are friendly, but slightly competitive, at an intermediate level. In the warmer weather, we play at 8:30 am. The time changes as the weather gets colder. We play on public courts, in private communities, and occasionally at the Navy Brigade. 

The chairperson sends out an email to members of the group each Wednesday with information about time of play and where we are meeting. Members reply to the email if they wish to play that week. Then a confirming email is sent Sunday with list of members playing. Come join us!  You will get some exercise and meet some congenial tennis players.
