Homeschool Golf Program Finds A New Home In Royal Palm Beach
Homeschool students were reunited with coach Glen Beaver in June when he resumed sessions that were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March.

The group golf sessions are now offered at the Golf Practice Center at Commons Park in Royal Palm Beach, as well as at Dyer Park in Riviera Beach. “I am honored that the families are willing to travel to the new locations,” Beaver said. “I have learned that home educators put a lot of thought into how they allocate their time, and the fact that they choose my program means a lot.” Beaver launched the program in fall 2018 at the Park Ridge Golf Course with 11 students, and by March 2020, it had grown to include three different sessions, including one at the Okeeheelee Golf Course, serving almost 70 students. He had hoped to continue at the Palm Beach County courses, but
when new management took over those courses, his programs were not retained. “I was quite shocked, to be honest, but it was their decision to make,” Beaver said. “Our goals just didn’t line up.” His goal has always been to give people, no matter their age or ability, the opportunity to learn golf at an affordable price point. “I started teaching because I want others to enjoy the game,” he said. “It’s about seeing my students progress and have fun.” Fortunately, J.P. Begley of Begley Golf found value in meeting the needs of homeschool students, and he welcomed Beaver into Commons Park. A six-week makeup session was offered beginning in June for families willing to resume, and another
four-week session is scheduled for Tuesdays in August. The 2020-21 schedule, which features four sev-

Bearded dragons have become popular pets in the last few decades. They are medium-sized lizards usually between 12 and 24 inches in length. They are naturally found in Australia. The average well-looked-after bearded dragon will live between 8 and 12 years. Bearded dragons are gentle by nature and are easy, affectionate pets. They enjoy being petted and stroked and will learn to perch on a person’s shoulder. When feeling threatened, a bearded dragon will expand its throat and perhaps even change color. Unlike other lizards, they are unable to grow new tails. Their dietary needs include insects, vegetables, and non-citrus fruit, and the amount of each will change as they age. Perhaps more than any other pet, reptiles require specific tank setups, including proper light and heat, as well as specific diets to grow and thrive. Once your dragon’s environment is set up properly and the pet looks healthy, it should require only an annual checkup. At COMMUNITY ANIMAL HOSPITAL OF ROYAL PALM BEACH, we provide medical care and treatment for your dog, cat and exotic pets. Please call 798-5508 for appointments or emergencies pertaining to your pet’s health. We are conveniently located at 11462 Okeechobee Blvd., 1/4 mile east of Royal Palm Beach Blvd. P.S. Bearded dragons prefer a humid environment and benefit from a daily misting. Regular bathing during the week should also be part of their good health and wellness program.
