Lexington, Va. – On Monday, June 8, Lexington Golf & Country Club will celebrate the start of the Women’s Eastern Golf Association (WEGA) 2015 Amateur Championship. This highly prestigious event is also garnering local attention. At 5:30 p.m. in The View room of Lexington’s club, the WEGA will present a check for $1,000 to the Lylburn Downing Middle School Golf Team.

“We are honored to be chosen to host the WEGA,” said Shaun Fronk, general manager of Lexington Golf & Country Club. “We were thrilled to learn the association wanted to donate funds to a local organization. We knew their focus was helping young female golfers become more involved in the sport, so the Lylburn Downing Team seemed like a perfect fit. We know these funds will make a huge impact and we’re excited to watch the team grow.”
