Coach Tom’s Etiquette Class

Last month, Coach Tom Tacl invited the First Tee families from Bayou Golf Course to participate in an etiquette class! Fifty-six First Tee kids and interested parents attended a two-hour dinner where they learned how to formally set a table, which utensils to use and when, how to eat with “pace,” how to attend to their napkin and so much more. The kids got to network and meet new friends while learning the ins and outs of a formal dinner. Thank you, Coach Tom, for going above and beyond! This group will use these beneficial life skills for years to come. 

Leading Ladies Cup Tournament

The Leading Ladies Cup was named in honor of all the mothers and ladies out there that has impacted our lives . Thank you so much for everything you have done for every one of us!
