Hi once again  from sunny, dry,dry,dry Florida! In this type of weather with course conditions being very dry and hard, you have to adjust your club selection on your shots.Please click the link in the next section below on how to adjust for these conditions.
Also -- especially here in the South -- DO  NOT leave your golf clubs or golf shoes for any extended period of time in your garage or the trunk of your car. The grips will "melt" and the rubber on your golf shoes will fall off!
So be aware of what the hot weather does to your equipment!

                 Mother's Day is Sunday May 14 

How about giving Mom a golf lesson or golf clubs? Purchase a gift certificate and it can be emailed to you for your convenience. Please call 941-350-1653 to purchase or for more info. 

Well I am very excited to go back to my roots on Long Island in June to play a beautiful golf course that is as world renowned as it is historic. I played at this club over 20 years ago and still remember some of the holes.

Can you guess where I will be playing?

First one to text me @ 941-350-1653 will win 1 sleeve of Callaway Chrome  yellow/black "soccer" golf balls.
Good luck! I'm giving NO clues

In 2017, Hannah Green (Perth, Australia) finished at 2-under par, 214 after a final round 1-over 73 to earn her first career Symetra Tour victory at the Sara Bay Classic. Green, 20, was the only player to finish under par for the tournament on the Donald Ross design at Sara Bay Country Club. The 2017 Symetra Tour rookie bested playing partner and 36-hole leader Benyapa Niphatsophon (Bangkok, Thailand) and Princess Superal (Dasmarinas City, Philippines) who tied for second place at even par.

Rooney! Update.....
Rooney has come to SchiavettaGolf Academy  a couple of times in the past month to get the "lay of the land." "Land" she got -- I discovered she likes to dig holes while I am giving a lesson! 
But she is getting a little older and I've noticed she is listening to me .... sort of  :)

AFTER I told her to 'Stop':

To my Mom- Who was (and is) always there for me. Growing up with 5 other siblings, she managed to keep us in line and with her and my Dad - taught us not only proper manners but also to treat others with respect and dignity. She always said that whatever makes you happy to go and do it! 
This is for you you Mom - Love you! 
Happy Mother's Day! 

Mother's Day Gift Certificates are available!
