All participants had the opportunity to play the Norman Course at Barefoot Resort and Golf. We can’t thank the grounds staff at Barefoot Resort enough for making sure the course was in top condition everyday. Everyday after each round they were out there mowing, blowing the grass off and watering the grass. Having a course to play on in prime condition is always appreciated and again we thank you.
We would also like to say thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers who helped make this tournament so successful! We can’t thank you enough for your continuing support you provide to the academy! Thank you to Chili’s Grill & Bar, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Elliott Beach Rentals, Logan’s Roadhouse, Putters Pub, Second Cup Coffee Company, Burger Fi, Eggs Up Grill, East Bay Deli, Krispy Kreme, Rita’s Italian Ice, Anderson Brothers Bank, Chick-fil-A, Greg Norman’s Australian Grille and Lowes Foods.
