Eagles Golf Club members recently headed to the great outdoors of the Grand Reserve Golf Club, teeing off at the impressive 18-hole public course, which has dual entry from Bunnell and Palm Coast.
Member Ralph Lightfoot shared that the club was formed to encourage participation of minorities in the great game of golf, and designed to plan and promote participation of its members in golf-related activities.
The club conducts golf outings for members and invited guests, provides and maintains a Junior Golf Program for minority youth, and provides members with the opportunity to maintain a USGA handicap.
It was worth swinging on the wide-long fairways and beautiful, well-manicured green landscapes of the Grand Reserve Golf Club, between Palm Coast and Ormond Beach, only 30 minutes south of St. Augustine.
