A Better Shot Foundation

Helping the Youth of our Community


Our Foundation is more than a gathering place for friends and families.  It is a mehcanism to further the future.  Helping educate, support and mentor children as they transform into promising young adults.

Golf Experience

So far, averaging over 190 kids per summer, Lemon Bay Golf Club has taught over 3,000 local kids life’s good values through the game of golf. We believe that each of these kids grew up, in some small way, with a better shot in life. Our summer program starts at age 4 and runs through high school. Many kids stick with our program until, as high school students, they become summer golf coaches themselves, giving back to our community. 

Summer Program

Each summer A Better Shot hosts an 8 week summer junior golf program on Tuesdays.  Each child is placed in a group based on their ability, and arrives to have an educations session (golf & life skills), 45 minute lesson, play an appropriate number of holes on the golf course, and join everyone for a nutritious buffet lunch.  We work with each child to excel at their level, having fun while learning rules, etiquette, and social skills.

The mission of A Better Shot Junior golf program is to inspire young individuals as they develop life skills, self-esteem, integrity, honor and respect.  This program is part of the DNA of our wonderful golf club and is more than just golf.  Begun in 1996 by a group of our founding members, our program now provides approximately $80,000 annually in educational scholarships. 72 young men and women have been able to further their education with over $550,000 in scholarships given..

In January of 2022 we met our first goal of $1,000,000 in our endowment fund.  We are working at building our endowment to not only provide a few partial scholarships for college, but provide one child a 4 year full scholarship to a Florida college/tech school/or university. 

If you would like more information on our contributing to our endowment fund, please contact Cindy Claude.  If you have been a past participant in our junior program, and would like to apply for a college or tech school scholarship, please click the link below.  All scholarship packets must be returned by January 10.  The scholarship information for the 2024/2 school year will be available in November.
