Yep! It comes and goes so fast and before you know it the season is over. Another great event is in the books and what a great weekend. Yes, a little chilly and a little windy, but all-in-all a great weekend on a very challenging course.
The Palatka Golf Club is not known for its length, but it is known for the tough Donald Ross designed greens and sneaky fairways requiring players to place their ball correctly throughout the course. The true challenge is selecting the correct club and ball flight to stick a green. On this course, be off line just a yard and you may regret it. A mouth-watering birdie or eagle can quickly turn into a bogey or worse. It’s easy to three putt from six feet and I will venture to say only a handful of the players can say they did not.
The golf course headed by PGA Professional Andy Heartz is in the best condition that I have ever seen it in, so kudo’s to his entire team for getting it ready for the best junior tour around.
Many thanks to our sponsors from “
Street Charities”. This group is 100% behind the efforts of the North Florida Junior Golf Foundation and the “Junior Azalea” which spins into the Senior Azalea and THE AZALEA. The crew spent their entire weekend making sure our kids had a great experience.
Palatka Men’s Golf Association did another bang up job by providing safety for our kids and watched for the stray balls as the balls arced over the hills and took wild bounces at times reducing the time spent looking for a ball. We all know you get some wild bounces at Palatka Golf Club once and a while.
