Mayacoo features 18 distinctive challenges for players of every skill level. Mayacoo Lakes was the first effort for Jack Nicklaus and many believe it was his best. The course opened in December 1972. It was restored to its original design and reopened in December 2007 under the watchful eye of Kipp Schulties. The re-mastered course won the coveted 2008 Golf Digest “America’s Best New Courses-Best New Remodeled Category” Award.
The Young Singers was established by music educators in Palm Beach County, including Shawn Berry, Michael Yannette and Connie Drosakis. They envisioned a children’s choral organization that would not be constrained by school boundaries, religious affiliations, racial bias, socio-economic barriers or funding cuts.
This dream was realized during the summer of 2003. The first choir season began with 79 singers. In its 11th year, the community-based children’s choir has approximately 350 singers, in grades 3 through 12, from all parts of Palm Beach County. Aside from local concerts, the choir has toured the nation. For more information, visit www.yspb.org.
