The Men’s Nine-Hole league at Queen’s Harbour Yacht & Country Club in Jacksonville, Florida, recently invited The First Tee of Jacksonville to the club for a nine-hole golf event. The Ladies Golf Association also participated in the event, which teamed up a student with each player for the two-person scramble.
During the scramble, putts were scored and afterward awards were given out to more than half of the kids in attendance while all the kids received personalized divot tools donated by Members. The kids also were treated to lunch. Not only did the Members of the Men’s Nine-Hole league raise money for golf, lunch and prizes and gifts for the kids, they also raised money to donate to The First Tee.
This is the second year of this unique event, which a representative from The First Tee of Jacksonville says is like no other in the area but is hoping Queen’s Harbour is starting a new trend.
Kudos to Queen’s Harbour and the Men’s Nine-Hole group for their time, generosity, and a great day on the golf course.
Who knew watching movies could inspire children to cook?
Since the success of their debut event in July, Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley, Pa. has offered its' Members a monthly “Kid’s Cooking Class” where children can join Chef Bobby in a fun-filled movie-themed cooking class.
On September 19, 2012, Chef Bobby taught 15 kids how to make his special homemade marinara sauce. Afterwards, the kids appropriately watched Disney’s “The Lady and the Tramp” while happily enjoying their homemade saucy masterpiece.
For August’s automobile-themed class, the kids learned how to creatively decorate cupcakes to look like a car, all the while watching the Disney favorite “Cars”. During Diamond Run’s first class in July, the theme was based on Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures’ “The Lorax” so the kids wore mustaches and learned how to make pancakes.
The classes are a perfect quiet date-night opportunity for parents to eat dinner at the grille or play a round of golf.
Plans are tentatively set for a Halloween-themed class on October 24.
See below for Chef Bobby's special marinara recipe from the class on September 19.
