CRESTVIEW — Four north Okaloosa County school golf programs have additional funding following the Foxwood Country Club Ladies Golf Association’s most recent contributions.

The LGA gave Crestview High School, Baker School and Davidson Middle School’s golf programs each a $300 check on Monday afternoon at the green’s headquarters.

The LGA also wrote a $300 check for the Shoal River Middle School golf team, which couldn’t attend the presentation due to a prior commitment.

 The LGA raised $1,300 from hole sponsorships during a December tournament, said Bonnie Rincon, the association’s president. 

Baker, Crestview High and Davidson’s coaches said the donations would go toward the teams’ regular expenses including golf equipment and team shirts.

"We're probably going to use it towards shirts or (golf) balls," James Kerrell, Baker’s middle school coach, said.
