2017 Little Big Golf Challenge
Royal Blue Golf Club at Baha Mar
In the first year of the little BIG Golf Challenge, the event has pulled a full field of 40 junior golfers (little’s) and 40 adult golfers (BIGs) to pair with them.
The purpose of the event is to:
· Create awareness of the talent of our junior golfers.
· Create mentoring opportunities for our adult community
· Create a fun environment for adults and juniors
· Raise funds for the three entities involved to help with their efforts
The field will feature some of our best junior golfers, as well as some who are just learning the game and want to have a fun round of golf with their parents or adult golfer.
This event is a collaborative effort between three entities, spearheaded by Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy and its Parents of Golfers Association.
Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy
