Valerie Oakes-Locascio,

Formerly a commercial banker special-izing in trade finance, her interest in golf started at the urging of her husband, John, who was an avid golfer. Rather than become a golf widow, she sought an organization where she could find golfing buddies and at the same time improve her game. WGANJ fit the bill.

Val has been the Finance Officer for five years on the WGANJ Board. Val enjoys being on the Board and will now take her experience to organizing leagues.

She joined WGANJ in August of 2017 and played in Paramus as a walk-on after not playing for over 7 years. Her first time on the course resulted in a hole-in-one. She volunteered for as many events as possible and began attending the monthly meetings. She was eventually invited to join the Finance Committee. 

I joined WGANJ  to meet nice people, have fun and be outside. I have not been disappointed.
