Signing a letter of intent to go play golf at an NCAA school, I can only imagine is an extremely memorable moment in any junior's golf career.

It signifies a long and dedicated journey to a new challenging chapter of their sporting life.

Matt Williams, one of the juniors at Pinebrook G&CC, signed his letter on Wednesday, Nov.13th. He’s off to the University of Houston next August.
Matt’s drive for improvement is insatiable and his goals aren’t limited to college, he dreams big and bold dreams but for now, golf as a U. of H. Cougar is where he’ll continue to sharpen his skills and test his metal.

For an amateur golfer there is little more exciting than getting the opportunity to tee it up alongside a touring professional in a pro-am event.
At the same time though, there is little more disappointing than having that same pro more preoccupied with what’s in front of him than paying attention to what’s at hand.
As a result of that, Private Professional Golf (PPG) has stepped in to fill that personality void by providing golf professionals with a sense of responsibility in making sure their amateur companions feel right at home by passing on playing tips, inside the ropes stories about their careers and friendly chatter.

A 'buddies' golf trip is something most men, young or old, always look forward to.
Getting away from work, replacing it with play? Easy.
Throw in great courses with the fellas, some beverages solidified with good natured banter, now that’s hard to beat.
Unless of course that trip is an all expensed trip for four to Scotland to play golf at some of the greats.
