Westham Golf Club Announces Name Change

Magnolia Green Golf Club in Moseley, VA

Westham Golf Club in Moseley, Va. is changing its name to Magnolia Green Golf Club. The name will now match the name of the resort-style community it serves.

“We really felt like it was important to change the name so our community could identify with the course,” says General Manager Bobby Kidder. “It’s provides a sense of pride. We had people coming in asking to play the Magnolia Green course after they had just played Westham, so there was some confusion.”

Kidder mentioned how other courses in the Richmond region are all named after the city they are from or the community they are a part of. “We actually aren’t sure where the name Westham comes from,” says Kidder. “There really wasn’t anything that we could say to connect our course name to the community.”

The name change will be effective immediately.
