12801284_10208916266129622_3290584495410744396_nWe are off and running on the east coast of Florida with the start of our very own monthly Meet and Greets inspired by the west coast’s own Carole Clark!  These LPGA/PGA Meet and Greets were designed to bring local golf professionals together to network, share some food and spirits, as well as good laughs.  They will be held the third week of the month on different days of the week so we can accommodate as many schedules as possible.  Our first Meet and Greet was held at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza in Delray Beach and it was an amazing time had by all!  We know a lot of you are up north for the summer or traveling so we look forward to seeing you upon your return!  Please spread the word about our gatherings with your LPGA and PGA friends so we can continue to grow both professionally and personally!  The next Meet and Greet on the east coast of Florida will be on Thursday, August 18th at 7:00pm.  We will be meeting again at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza in Delray Beach.  Please email Valerie at if you plan to attend.  Hope to see you all there!

Letter from the Southeast Section Vice President — Carole Clark

Ahhhhh…..the seasons are changing! Some in our section see that as a coming of relief, rest and relaxation after a very unpredictable winter in Florida. Others are on the brink of a new season, with new programs, new positions, new goals and new dreams. Whichever describes you and your situation, we hope that you will include participation in LPGA T&CP activities as a part of your plans for this coming season.

Our calendar of events includes local, regional and national activities to participate in all throughout the summer months. Local Lunch & Learns and Meet & Greets will be blossoming all over the Southeast Section as your section officers will be reaching out to you to have you host an event in your area.

If you have areas of interest relating to programs or activities offered in our section, please make one of your officers aware and we will do all we can to get you involved and make whatever you do a success.

If you are looking for a real value in personal growth, consider joining a local Toastmasters club, where you will get plenty of practice speaking, evaluating and leading in a non-threatening, learning environment. There are clubs available all over the world.

Looking forward to connecting with all of you at something LPGA this season.

Happy Easter…happy spring!

Letter from the Vice President

It’s an exciting time in the SE Section! Seasons are changing, our members who have infiltrated the South for the season will soon be preceeding the mass exodus of their students/members to their northern destinations.

We’ve had an unusual winter here in SWFL, with much rain and cooler than normal temps. That is always a challenge for our members who rely on the sunshine for their revenues.

I have just returned from PHX, completing the first ever Opti International Certification with Dr. Debbie Crews. As you know, Dr. Debbie has researched every part of the brain and it’s function during the performance of the golf swing, particularly putting, for the past 30 years.

The product and applications for the Opti Brain and Opti Train technology within Opti Golf are endless. “Labs” with your clients can be conducted indoors or outdoors. A great “rainy day” revenue generator.

Watch the Newsletter from HQ for future Certification sessions. If you would like more information about the product and applications, please contact me at anytime at

Finally, the local Meet & Greets have been well received. Please let me know if you would like to conduct them in your area. No special skills necessary, just a desire to connect.

Happy Easter, happy Spring and I hope to connect with you all soon!
