The recent Alabama NW Florida PGA Section Awards Dinner was an evening of celebration for exceptional PGA professionals. Among the honored were Craig Bocking, Director of Instruction, crowned as the 2024 ALNWFL Section PGA Coach of the Year, and Jordan DeBonis, Head Golf Professional, recognized as the 2024 ALNWFL section PGA Player of the Year. Their outstanding performance reflects the dedication and excellence they bring to our team at The Ledges. We are immensely proud of their achievements and privileged to have them leading the way in our golf community.

We achieved remarkable milestones in 2023, with record-breaking rounds and exceptional participation in all club events. With sustained full membership, we anticipate the continuation of this trend, ensuring the enjoyment of our full golf course. The course boasted impeccable conditions last year, and we eagerly anticipate another year of excellence. We’re reaching out to request your support in giving back to the agronomy department, whose relentless efforts maintain this golf course’s pristine playing conditions. Contributing by repairing ball marks, filling divots, and consistently raking bunkers is the most significant way we can assist.

As a friendly reminder, the changing of time indicates longer days and more opportunities for golf. Our primary focus is on elevating our members’ experience. We eagerly anticipate the implementation of new programs designed to surpass your expectations and create an unforgettable experience. For those who may be new to the sport, now is the perfect time to dive in and discover the joys of golf. With lessons, clinics, and introductory programs readily available, there’s never been a better opportunity to learn the ropes and embark on a journey that promises endless enjoyment and fulfillment. Please reach out to me if you have any questions, and I will help guide you down the right avenue to best spark your golf interest.

Unfortunately, Emily our Pro Shop Assistant has taken a new job in Metairie, Louisiana at Metairie Country Club. We thank her for her hard work, and we wish her the best of luck. With that said, we are proud to announce a new addition to our Professional Staff. Michael Caune just joined us at the end of February. Michael has recently gone through the process of getting into the PGA Associates program to begin his journey to become a PGA Class “A” Professional. Michael will bring a lot of enthusiasm, new ideas and is eager to learn more about The Ledges Membership. Please stop by the Golf Shop and introduce yourself, we know he will be a great addition to The Ledges Professional Staff. Lastly, golf equipment this year is as good as we have ever seen from every company. From all drivers that are engineered to create max forgiveness to Ai designing these products, this equipment this year is the most precise we have ever seen. We encourage you to reach out for a fitting with our Professional Staff and let us help you find the best product that fits your swing so we can elevate your golf game this year. 2024 is going to be a great year at The Ledges and we are glad you will be a part of it.

resonating with music. Our goal is to ensure you and your guests relish every moment, and should any concerns arise, please feel free to reach out to me at While many of our golf members already have my email, I extend this invitation to all social members as well—I’m eager to hear from each of you.
