WOAY – Hear from West Virginia Golf Association Executive Director Brad Ullman, who was in White Sulphur Springs Wednesday for the grand opening of the Greenbrier’s Ashford Short Course.
2018 has been a year to remember for the WVGA. In addition to successful stagings of the State Amateur & Open Championships (at the Greenbrier & the Resort at Glade Springs, respectively), five West Virginia natives have qualified for various USGA national championship events this month. Sam O’Dell, Josef Dransfeld, and Mason Williams all took part in the U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach, while Adeena Shears reached the match play portion of the Women’s Amateur, and Jeff Harper will play in the Senior Amateur.
Ullman says the WVGA is eager to continue its work promoting golf throughout the Mountain State, particularly with women’s and junior events. The association will hold the 100th West Virginia Amateur next year at the Greenbrier, while Parkersburg Country Club will host the 2019 West Virginia Open.
