Special Olympics Saint Lucie County Coordinator Jeff Hancock was on hand to assist with the training, and in a follow up email he commented: “WOW. That is all I can say about what I saw yesterday. What you are able to do for our athletes is just amazing. Thank you so much from all of our athletes.” Training will continue until the September 6th and 7th State Golf Tournament, which will be held on the Reserve and Crane’s Bend courses at Orange Lake Resort & Golf Club in Orlando, FL.
