LONG BRANCH, NJ - More than 100 golfers turned out to support FCS (Family & Children's Service) at the 2017 FCS Golf Classic on Monday, July 24th at Deal Golf & Country Club.
Clouds and rain dominated the sky in the morning but transitioned to sunshine in the afternoon resulting in a beautiful spring-like day for an outing.
