Congratulations to Justin Smith for making the 36 hole cut at this week’s PGA Professional National Championship. Justin made a great comeback during the second round, shooting 2 under on his final nine holes to make the cut. Justin was also highlighted by the Golf Channel when he almost made a hole in one. Justin did a great job representing Bonita Bay Club in this prestigious event and we’re all very proud of him. Below is Justin’s highlight on the Golf Channel.
This week’s Fresh Catch was personally caught by Chef Richard Brumm! Chef went spear fishing (commercially) this weekend and caught this 45 pound Amberjack. The Fresh Catch will be served tonight at Prix Fixe!
