PALM BEACH, Florida – The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) has awarded the Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course the Hook A Kid On Golf (HAKOG) 2010 New Golf Facility of the Year Award. The golf course was recognized for its outstanding efforts in introducing the game of golf to underserved children in Palm Beach County, through their programming, organization and professionalism.
The Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course partnered with The Par 3 Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County and World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Raymond Floyd to host their inaugural HAKOG clinics for 40 children, ages 8-12 years old, selected by the Boys and Girls Club.
“Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course’s clinics were a success due to the efficiency of those administrating the programs. The development of this new HAKOG site is a tremendous opportunity for local children to be introduced to the game of golf,” said Caitlin Autwell, Director of HAKOG. “They are a most deserving organization for the 2010 New Golf Facility of the Year Award.”
“Receiving this award not only recognizes the efforts of the Town’s Recreation Department and the volunteer golf instructors involved in running the clinics, but the long-term commitment by Raymond Floyd and the Par 3 Foundation for supporting this program,” said Jay Boodheshwar, Director of Recreation for the Town. Raymond Floyd said, “It really gives you a great feeling to do something good for the kids, and to have our site designated as the new site of the year makes it even more special.”
