Nearly 100 golfers took to the links at the Breakers Ocean Course for the Oxbridge Academy’s annual golf classic on Monday, Nov. 18. PGA Pro Brad Faxon hosted a short-game clinic for players to kick off the day. Faxon, whose daughter is a senior at Oxbridge, shared some of his secrets, skills and stories that helped him earn eight wins on the PGA Tour.
The day culminated with a cocktail reception and awards ceremony on the front lawn. Players toasted their own game, along with the winning family foursome of Ralph, Josh, Greg and Ralph Sr. Della Pietra for first place net and first place gross winners of Joseph White, Bryce Newell, Brandon Grzandziel and Lester Hooker.
Members of the Golf Classic Committee attending included co-chairs P.H. Horgan III and Matt Smith, Hampton Beebe, Michael Calkin, Dory Faxon, Justin Girard, Steven Green, Hunter Hallowell, Kevin Johnson, Rob Konrad, Sean Lang, Doug Luce and Rick Ofsanko.
The Oxbridge Academy boys and girls golf teams both recently made school history by winning the regional championships, and both teams clinched on the same day.
Additionally, Oxbridge senior Maisie Filler placed second individually in Class 1A state finals for the second year in a row. Filler just signed to play at the University of Florida.
The Oxbridge Academy golf classic is an annual event that brings together parents, friends and families of Oxbridge for a day of golf to support the school. The event benefits the students and faculty of the Oxbridge Academy, its classrooms and campus life.
