Looking for the perfect date for you fundraising tournament or just a special outing with friends?  La Contenta Golf Club is now taking reservations for 2012.  There are still good dates available for the 2011 also.  Send a request to La Contenta's Professionals to check out availablility.

Marty’s Answer - Just like clubs many manufacturers produce balls and each have multiple lines of balls to choose from.  

By far and away the Titleist Pro V has led the industry is sales for years.  It is the most popular ball with amateurs and professionals alike.  It is also one of the most expensive balls on the market.  

I always recommend finding a ball that a player likes that balances value and performance.

Depending on your line of work it can be greatly beneficial.  Networking and the relationships built during a round of golf can last a lifetime.  During a round of golf a person’s character is brought to the surface and much can be learned about a person.  Golf can be good or bad for you depending on your disposition.

Go to the PGA website:  Click on become a PGA Professional and all details of the apprenticeship program are available for review.

Start with the club your are hosting your event at.  They will usually supply a gift certificate for future golf.  Next think about your demographic of player in your event and solicit prizes from local businesses that would like to be exposed to your players in hopes of earning future business from their donation.  A sponsorship has to be mutually beneficial.  Don’t forget your players and any businesses they may have that they would like to promote.
