Hey, Matt! How's your Dad? Rob Field texted me Friday and said he just met you. That and your posts reminded me to inquire.

Bayhead had a great junior camp...Amre S. ran it and had some stud juniors. It is very close to Seminole State...maybe they can get a couple of top Swedes like Pernfors and Tobias to relaunch a program.

We used to have a lot of clay clubs...OTRC, Maitland Field Club, Sabal Point (I worked there for Tony Fernandez in the late 80's). At least Azalea finally added their Har-Tru to overcome all that closed.
