On July 16-17, the Palm Beach County Sports Commission presented the 2014 Kids Fitness Festival of the Palm Beaches. The event was held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center and included over 40 different traditional and non-traditional sports. Some of the featured sports included baseball, basketball, fencing, football, golf, lacrosse, martial arts, netball, pickle ball, tennis, soccer and more.
Five South Florida PGA Professionals and Apprentices were onsite to deliver golf lessons to kids who attended the event. Kids enjoyed a few tips on the full swing and playing a variety of putting games. Many kids returned multiple times throughout the two-day event and expressed great interest in the game of golf.
Thank you to all those who dedicated their time to grow the game of golf: Mike Jonges, PGA, Brad Roffer, Mike Ortega, PGA, Seth Francis, and Dave Pesacov, PGA.
