Course Improvement Projects
& Youth Golf Development Programs
The four-day golf camp programs were developed and run under the direction of PGA Professionals Jim Colliflower and Spencer Skipper. New General Manager Mike Elmore was encouraged to see so many adult volunteers participate and offer their assistance to extend and grow the game to more than 125 participants this year.
Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA)
The CDA Public Golf Club offered the use of their facility at no charge to two youth-oriented organizations who were approached by the Foundation after it saw a need. The programs were successful due in part to the GCBAA who donated 15 sets of youth golf clubs through their national grant program called “Sticks for Kids”. The Friends Foundation was fortunate and thankful to have a local member, Rick Lohman, who serves as a Director of Corporate Accounts for the Toro Company, arrange for the golf club grant.
Lake City High School Golf Team - Gives Back
Lake City HS golfers help coach kids in the Boys & girls Club golf camp at the CDA Public Golf Course. The camps are hosted by the Foundation, who recently donated Sun Mountain carry bags to the Lake City Timberwolves team.
