A Better Shot - Junior Golf

 

Twenty years ago, a small group of Lemon Bay founders and golf professionals had the idea of using the game of golf to help give local kids a better shot in life. Thus began the Lemon Bay Junior Golf Foundation.

Golf Experience

So far, averaging over 170 kids per summer, Lemon Bay Golf Club has taught over 2500 local kids life’s good values through the game of golf. We believe that each of these kids grew up, in some small way, with a better shot in life. Our summer program starts at age 4 and runs through high school. Many kids stick with our program until, as high schoolers, and they become summer golf coaches themselves, giving back to our community.

Summer Program

Each summer A Better Shot hosts an 8 week summer junior golf program on Tuesdays.  Each child is placed in a group based on their ability, and arrives to have a 45 minute lesson, play an appropriate number of holes on the golf course, and join everyone for a nutritious buffet lunch.  We work with each child to excel at their level, having fun while learning rules, etiquette.

Scholarships

We are working at building our endowment to not only provide a few partial scholarships for college, but provide one child a 4 year scholarship to a Florida college/tech school/or university.
