It was only the second day of school, but it was the second event of the season for the Fluco golf team. On Aug. 10 the golfers under Coach Bryan Searcy traveled to the Old Trail course in Crozet for a Jefferson District match. Old Trail is the home course of the Western Albemarle team. After a lot of rain, the golfers were happy to have near perfect conditions for this competition.
The Old Trail course, played from the regular men’s white tees, is slightly friendlier than the Lake Monticello course the Flucos call home. The Old Trail course has a rating of 69.9/125 slope, while the Lake Monticello course is 71.0/131 slope. Nonetheless, the Flucos had some problems navigating the Old Trail course, which is flatter than would be expected for a course so close to the mountains. The team finished seventh in an eight-team field.
