“Thank you to Fincastle Country Club for hosting such a great day for our senior golfers,” said WVGA Director of Women’s Golf and One Day Series Sarah Cole.

“We’re always excited to have WVGA senior players here, especially those new to our course.  It’s fun to see them play here on our course,” said Fincastle’s Director of Golf Hunter O’Neal.  “The course is drier than usual, and a bit firmer, but still great!”
