Nassau, Bahamas (March 27, 2017) – On Saturday, March 25, Baha Mar Director of Golf Sean Cracraft and Baha Mar Golf Professional Andy Deiro attended Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy’s junior skills competition at Bahamas Golf Federation facilities. There, they presented Georgette Rolle, Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy Founder and Lead Instructor, with a donation of 30 sets of golf clubs and bags for the academy’s elementary school age students, on behalf of Baha Mar and Royal Blue Golf Club, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, set to open on April 21.
Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy, a local youth organization in Nassau, is committed to impacting, developing and retaining junior golfers, while instilling life-long values such as responsibility, confidence, passion, sportsmanship and perseverance.

“The instructors and students at Fourteen Clubs are exceedingly grateful for this donation from my colleagues at Royal Blue Golf,” said Georgette Rolle, Founder of Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy and Assistant Golf Professional at Royal Blue Golf Club. “The brand-new clubs will make a significant difference in the kids’ learning and play, and will enable our students to participate in more advanced tournaments.”
