Wintergreen Resort – Nellysford – Nelson County, Virginia
The day was absolutely perfect, though a tad chilly, for the 1st Annual Nelson County High School Band Golf Tournament. Sindri Linen, manager of Stoney Creek Bar & Grill at Wintergreen Resort, coordinated this year’s event. “We are so excited with the turnout. We had over 60 entries for our very first tournament, how wonderful,” Sindri says. The tournament took place on the Stoney Creek Golf Course at the resort.

Area businesses sponsored holes along the course to help raise money for the band. NCL was one of many glad to pitch in!

Money raised from the tournament will help band boosters with expenses for the band including a trip next year to Florida.
