Welcome to our Fore Life Family! 2018-03-13T11:40:44+00:00

Welcome to our Fore Life Family!

Fore Life, Inc. is a not for profit, 501(c) (3) organization and a completely separate entity from the City of Lauderhill.  We are housed at the Lauderhill Golf Course, but we do not receive any funding from the City.

The following basic program information is provided to all new applicants.

All new members and their parents and/or guardian must attend an orientation session before a membership is accepted.  The session will be scheduled when your application is submitted.

Fore Life, Inc.’s annual membership is $75.00 per child.  The membership fee does not include spring and summer camps.  The membership is due once membership is granted and renewable a year from your acceptance date.  It is the tireless efforts of coaches, the generosity of a few, small grants and your annual member fee that make it possible for us to offer quality programming at such a low cost to your children.

  1. Program Hours

Please make every effort to get your child to the golf course at least ten (10) minutes before the scheduled session.  All members must sign-in prior to each session.  It is very disruptive and unfair to the children that arrive on time to have others arrive after the session has already begun.  Plus, your child will miss valuable life skills information that’s normally covered at the beginning of each session.  In golf and especially competition, when you’re late to your tee time, you will be penalized and/or disqualified.  Remember, we are raising champions!  Please do your part by getting them here and picking them up on time.

Training sessions are as follows:

Tuesday and Thursday (After School)

3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Available to all levels

Saturday

10:00 am – 1:00 pm                                                                             Advanced (Biggy Wows)

2:00 pm – 4:00 pm                                                                              Beginners/New Members (Itty Bittys)

Sunday

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm                                                                              Advanced Only – (Or as scheduled by coaches)

Schedule is subject to change and will be revised on early release and school holidays.  Weekday hours will change during summer.

Parents are asked to be mindful of the program hours and not telephone or contact coaches during sessions.

  1. Volunteer Hours

In addition to the annual membership fee, a minimum of one hour per month (per child) of parent volunteering is required.  There are various committees and tasks necessary to help in achieving our long term goals.  A “Love Log” is provided to keep track of all parent volunteer hours.  Keep in mind that there are many ways you can satisfy them.  No gift and/or talent are too little.  Anything you do that benefits Fore Life, benefits your child and should be logged.  If, at the end of your child’s membership, you have not fulfilled your volunteer hours, you will be assessed an additional $75.00 that will be added to your child’s renewal fee.

Volunteer positions include but are not limited to the following:  These positions are also available to Biggy-Wows for community service hours and should also be logged:

REFRESHMENTS:
Provide and/or prepare beverage and snacks after scheduled      sessions.  Serve and coordinate the necessary set-up and clean up.

CLEANUP:
Assist children with the cleanup of the pro shop (inside and outside)     after sessions.

EARLY CARE:
Assist with safety during and after sessions, especially with Itty     Bittys.

COACHES:
 If you have some golf abilities, assist with training.  If you’re   willing to learn and want to help, we will train you.

ADMINISTRATION:
Assist with any task required to keep Fore Life, Inc. operating, i.e. social media, recordkeeping, fundraising, etc.

SPECIAL EVENTS:
Serve on and/or chair a committee in a Fore Life event.

If you are interested in volunteering as a coach or know of someone who would be a good fit for the organization, please have them contact us.  All volunteers are subject to a background clearance before interacting with our children.  We welcome Coach Mom and Dads to serve as safety coaches during all training sessions.

  1. Web Page

www.forelifeinc.org is our web page and it contains items of interest and all current information on Fore Life, Inc.  We are more than a golf program and we want you and your child to receive the most from our programming.  We make every effort to keep it updated with scheduled events, changes in programming, photos, special events, etc. to keep you and our supporters up-to-date.  If there is anything else you would like for us to provide, the web is a good place to give us input.  If you haven’t visited the site, please do so and “like” us on Facebook.  For those of you who are not computer and/or social media savvy, we will continue to provide written notices to keep you abreast of important information.

  1. Uniforms

Appropriate attire for golf and Fore Life, Inc. is as follows:

Male members:
Golf shirt and shorts or slacks with pockets and shirts tucked in.

Female members:

Golf dress and/or golf shirt with shorts, Capri’s, slacks, skirts or skorts with pockets.  Female members are not required to have shirts tucked in.

Golf shoes, sneakers or any rubber sole shoe is acceptable.  We sometimes have golf shoes and will make every effort to provide them when we do.  We recommend caps or visors due to the extreme Florida heat and length of time we spend outdoors.

NO jeans, basketball shorts, daisy dukes, cut-offs, wife beaters or tee shirts.  They are not proper golf attire and not allowed on most golf course, never at a country club.  All members are given a member golf shirt once their membership is accepted.  We want all Fore Life members to be identified as such and take pride in wearing their golf “over their hearts”.  Plus, we look really good when we all are in uniform.   If you would like to order additional shirts or provide us with shirts to have the Fore Life logo applied, you can do so at our cost.

 Equipment

If your child does not have golf clubs, we will provide them.  If you receive golf clubs and your child leaves the program or you purchase better equipment, we ask that you return the equipment for another child to use.  We are always in need of golf balls and walking/stand golf bags.  If you know of anyone wanting to make donations, please let us know.  We will gladly accept and provide them with a donation letter.  All members will be issued a name tag to identify their clubs.  It is their responsibility to keep up with and care for their equipment.  Replacement equipment will not be issued.

The capital campaign for The Fore Life Project is ongoing.  The success of this vision will allow us to impact even more children by having our own facility.  In order for us to achieve this goal, we need the support of everyone in the Fore Life family.  Our fundraising efforts are ongoing and without the success of them, we would not be able to provide quality programming.  For complete information on the project and all upcoming events, please visit the website at www.forelifeinc.org or stay involved and you will always “be in the know”.

Thank you for allowing us to participate in your child’s development and empowering them Fore Life!

Always par,
