Men's Golf League at Cameron Hills Seeking New Members The League Championship Trophy, The Angerer Cup, is dedicated to the memory of Bill Angerer, the late Willow Oaks Manager from 1997 to 2005. The League is starting its second season at Cameron Hills Golf Links and is looking for new teams and new golfers. After more than 40 years of play at the Willow Oaks Golf Course on board What is now known as Naval Support Facility South Potomac (formerly NSWC Dahlgren), the Dahlgren Men's Golf League moved to Cameron Hills Golf Links in King George last year and is now gearing up for the 2009 season. League play will be on Mondays at 4:30 pm beginning in late April and will run through September, depending on the number of teams that register. The league was comprised of 15 teams last year. It is a handicap league' and the format will be a combination of match and medal play for nine (9) holes. All new golfers will be required to establish handicaps or show current USGA handicap.
