Last week we welcomed Film Producer, Dr. S. Bryan Hickox. Dr. Hickox gave a moving and informative talk on the statistics of sex trafficking around the world and how movies, with the right message, can change the way you think. Through his newest project, "Stolen Lives", he hopes to create awareness and reshape peoples' understanding of this worldwide problem. 

I would also like to remind everyone of our Celebration of Life to honor our friend Steve Johnston at our regular meeting on July 31st. If you would like to contribute to our donation fund to assist his wife, Elizabeth with the funeral costs, please visit our  GoFundMe page.

It's now an Arnold Palmer Signature layout, known for its intriguing curves and contours and rolling fairways, a setting that you don't often find in Florida. Our fairways are lined with majestic pines and oaks; our lush greens have won a name for Hidden Hills in North Florida.
