If you have been watching the PGA on television, you probably have seen the promotions for the PGA Junior League. PGA Junior League offers a great opportunity for your junior golfer to be introduced to competitive play in a team format. If you would like to explore this option for your junior golfer, Coach Mary-Lee Cobick has limited spots available on the Okeeheelee and Park Ridge teams for the Junior Golf Foundation of America. She can be reached at 561-964-4653 Ext 5.

The Honda Classic is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour at PGA National Resort & Spa Champions Course in Palm Beach Gardens. Tour professionals will visit our area February 25 - March 3, 2019 to not only play golf but to raise money for South Florida charities including the JGFA (Junior Golf Foundation of America). DISCOUNTED tickets to attend The Honda Classic are available at Okeeheelee and Park Ridge Golf Courses.
This year attendees will have an opportunity to see Brooks Koepka play. Koepka is not only a 3-time Major Winner but he is a local boy who spent his early years at Okeeheelee Golf Course.

The 12th Annual Palm Beach County Putting Classic is set for Saturday, March 16, 2019. The practice putting green at Okeeheelee Golf Course will serve as the backdrop for this creative "miniature golf course" competition. Each year golfers gather to participate in this fun event to raise money for the Junior Golf Foundation of America, Inc. which offers all children an opportunity to learn and play golf. I have the honor of teaching those children all day every Saturday, making me unavailable to participate in this event but I hope you will attend.
The Junior Golf Foundation of America, Inc. hosted their first Junior Tournament this past Sunday. I encouraged several of my junior students to participate because it gives them an opportunity to play against other golfers their age. Additionally, they will see first-hand how they play when I am not standing close-by to offer guidance. For my students it opened up a need to focus on a specific skill in our next lesson, it made them aware that playing competitively very stressful and most importantly playing in a tournament is a great way to build confidence.
