2017 Women’s Golf Day

Today, the South Florida PGA hosted the 5th Annual Women’s Golf Day presented by Jupiter Medical Center at Jupiter Country Club. Over 120 ladies participated in the day, which included free instruction from 18 PGA Professionals.

Not only did the ladies learn helpful tips from PGA Professionals, they were also able to try out the latest equipment from Titleist and Callaway. Jupiter Medical Center sponsored the event and was onsite to give free evaluations through their Golf Health Program. This program assesses a student for golf readiness and compatibility for the game. The health assessment is designed to help identify where the student may be driving adverse forces into the body rather than healthy forces into the golf ball. In additional to Jupiter Medical Center, GolfBuddy, SKIMP and ARGOLF were onsite to support the event and promote their latest products. Thank you to John Barrett, PGA Director of Golf, Mike Bronkema, PGA Head Golf Professional and the entire staff at Jupiter Country Club for hosting the event for the second straight year. Finally thank you to Betsy King for giving her advice and wisdom to our participants and all the PGA Professionals who were on-site giving free instruction: Bill Balash, Warren Bottke, Bruce Brandt, Art Carlson, Frank Clark, Steve Clawson, Kevin Compare, Chris David, Scott Fetner, Steve Harris, Michelle Hupfer, Mike Jonges, Will Lust, Bob Purcell, Nancy Quarcelino, Chase Vande [...]
