Next weekend is Boca madness! In addition to our long time favorite Boca Muni, Susan Geers has arranged for us to play the very private Boca Lago CC ! This is a rare opportunity to play golf on the multi-million dollar, recently renovated course. This is a beautiful club and the opportunity should not be missed. Tee times begin at noon and the rate is just $48. If you're interested please let Susan Geers know asap.

Congrats to Tracy Nessl for shooting her best ever 84 at Southwinds GC last Saturday! Tracy has worked hard on her game and it's showing. Just one year ago today her handicap was 25.5 and today it's trending 21.1! That's so amazing!! You go girl!
