Team Golf Growing in South Florida, More to Come

ATLANTIS, Fla. – The final Team Golf event in 2014 concluded this past weekend on Sunday, November 16.  Although the program is intended for the summer, the schedule was extended during the fall months to meet the demand of players, parents, and team coaches.

In just its second season, Team Golf has more than doubled the overall numbers going from 196 members in 2013 to 451 members in 2014.  A total of 41 teams participated in Team Golf, reaching close to 40 different facilities across south Florida.  Forty-one events were held in five different leagues and regions – Northern Palm Beach, Southern Palm Beach, Naples/Fort Myers, Broward County and Vero Beach.  In addition, more than 1800 tournament rounds were played by participants this season.

Other highlights include the first recorded hole-in-one by Team Golf members (Dylan Atkinson from team Tiburon Tour Academy on June 17 and Reid Korody from team Jonathan’s Landing Shipwreckers on October 11).

We want to thank all the PGA and LPGA members who helped with Team Golf for their dedicated work this year to help grow the game.  Specials thanks goes to the players and parents that participated in the program, and the host facilities for their continued support with Team Golf.  We also want to recognize and thank Team Golf sponsor Taylor Farms, which provided fruit this season as a healthy, on-course snack for the junior golfers.

Although this season may have come to an end, we are organizing the 2015 schedule that will be released early next year.  Be on the lookout for upcoming details in January.
