    Last updated 7 months ago

    Turf Valley proudly hosted the American Junior Golf Associate (AJGA) JoS. A. Bank / David Leadbetter Championship last week from Monday, August 19 – Thursday, August 22, 2013.  Forty-four of 107 competing golfers were from Maryland. Excitingly, three of the championship participants were from the Columbia/Ellicott City, MD area!

    Cody Lissner, of Ellicott City, MD, is now a senior at Mount Saint Joseph High School and this was his fifth year participating in AJGA competitions. Cody has given verbal commitment to continue playing golf at Charleston Southern next year. Killian Kasson, also of Ellicott City, MD, is a junior at Catonsville High School, and the championship was her second AJGA competition.  Last year, she tied for eighth place at the Preseason Junior at Nemacolin.

    Named one of the top players to watch at this year’s championship, Bryana Nguyen of Columbia, MD, has an extensive golf tournament history.  Competing since 2010, Bryana has participated in over 10 AJGA events and many more golf tournaments.  Last year, she won first place in the Under Armour® / Steve Marino Championship. Bryana has provided her verbal commitment to play golf at North Carolina. 

    This was AJGA’s first visit to Turf Valley! We were pleased to host golfers from across the country and the world, and thrilled that many were Marylanders, including from Howard County.  Congratulations to victors Kevin Conners, of Downington, PA, and Julie Luo, of Centreville, VA. We wish all participating junior golfers continued success!

    The 2013 JoS. A. Bank / David Leadbetter Championship was a 54-hole, 36-hole cut stroke play event.  The championship was held on Turf Valley’s Original Course, which allowed golfers to play through the heart of Turf Valley.

    3 Ideas for Your Wedding Color Theme

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Color is an integral aspect of any wedding décor. If you want to create a style for your special day, you should start with a strong color palette. Use this guide to create a beautiful and exciting color theme for your wedding:

    Rosy Pink and Rich Brown
    This color combination brings the perfect amount of romance and elegance to a hotel hall. Using a neutral like brown as your foundation, you can find pink accessories like flowers that give your décor richness. The whimsical appeal of pink is the ideal complement to dark, bold brown. If you prefer, you can use a few different shades of pink to contrast with this full-bodied neutral.

    Black and White with a Pop of Color
    If you prefer a strong color scheme, black and white is a good choice. With a splash of bold color like green or orange, you can transform this classic look into a modern option. Stick to simple, sophisticated flower arrangements with roses or calla lilies to create a modern theme.

    Orange and Vibrant Pink
    Brighten up your cheery day even more with this lively color combination. Orange and pink bring out the best in each other. You can choose bridesmaids’ dresses in one color and use the other for bouquets or alternate the dress colors using both shades. Throw in a bit of light green to add even more zest to this color scheme.

    At Turf Valley, your beautiful color scheme will look perfect against our stunning views of rolling hills and rich, luscious golf courses. As the only hotel between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. with more than 40,000 square feet of space for events, we can meet your every need.

    5 Tips for a Better Spa Experience

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Heading to the spa for a massage, facial or other body treatment is rewarding in more ways than one.  After treating yourself to spa indulgence, your skin will have an incredible glow, stress is reduced, and muscle pain is eased – the ultimate relaxation experience.

    The following tips will help you receive the full benefits of your treatment at the spa.

    1. Relax and be open to your spa treatment.  Turn off your cell phone to eliminate distractions, stress, or anything that could get in the way of relaxation.
    2. Schedule your next treatment before you leave the spa.  Massage and spa treatment benefits increase over time, plus you deserve to pamper yourself again!
    3. Do not immediately shower or bathe after your spa treatment.  Allow your skin to absorb the oils and vitamins, leaving your skin to look, feel and be healthier.
    4. Drink plenty of water. Spa water is great too; you get the benefits of quality H2O along with fruit and herbs.
    5. Relax after leaving the spa. Your spa visit includes complete access to Turf Valley’s indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, and fitness center. Or plan on relaxing at home, the park, or another place free of stress. You’ll leave the spa feeling relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated; hold on to that sensation as long as possible.

    Experience the many benefits of a spa service by booking a spa package or treatment here at Turf Valley. In addition to offering hotel conference facilities, we offer one of the most luxurious spa facilities in the Baltimore and DC area. To find out which of our spa services is right for you, call (410) 465-1500.

    Looking for a Unique Bridal Shower Idea? Host a Bridal Shower Spa Party

    Last updated 8 months ago

    If sitting around playing games and eating cupcakes isn't your idea of a fun bridal shower, then why not spice things up by hosting your shower at a spa? With help from the hotel conference facilities coordinator at your Baltimore resort and spa, you can put together a party that's anything but cliché. Here is a closer look at how to host a bridal shower spa party:

    Treat the Bride to a Special Service
    Whether you're the maid of honor or just a longtime friend of the bride, take it upon yourself to ask the bridesmaids and party attendees to pitch in on a service or special package for the bride to enjoy. From a relaxing Swedish massage to a facial that will make her feel like a pampered princess, there's no spa service too luxurious for the guest of honor at her bridal shower.

    Allow the Attendees to Choose Their Own Packages
    When it comes to booking services for yourself and the other women attending the bridal shower, be sure to allow each guests to choose her own treatment. Doing so will eliminate any awkward tension that could arise from an angry or upset guest who doesn't enjoy a certain type of service or whose budget doesn't allow her to pay for one of the pricier packages offered.

    Book a Post-Service Lunch
    To wrap up the shower in a classy and enjoyable fashion, speak to your Baltimore hotel conference room and spa coordinator about reserving a table for lunch at the on-sight cafe. After you, the bride-to-be, and your fellow guests have been pampered, you can relax with one another while enjoying a tasty meal before toasting to the fabulous festivities to come.

    The spa here at Turf Valley is an excellent site for a bridal shower thanks to our numerous spa treatments and our relaxing environment. We also offer spa packages and specials that make it easy to arrange a group reservation. To begin the process of booking your upcoming spa party with us, call (410) 465-1500.
