Providence Golf Tournament
Justin Leonard demonstrates golf techniques at Providence's golf tournament.
On October 29, Providence Christian School of Texas parents, friends, and alumni competed in Providence’s first annual golf tournament at The Old American Golf Club. The course, designed by Tripp Davis and Justin Leonard, is located on the shores of Lake Lewisville. Leonard and his wife, Amanda, have children who attend Providence. The event was tied to Providence’s 25th anniversary celebration.
After enjoying lunch, the group headed to the driving range for a stroke clinic from Justin Leonard before beginning the tournament. Providence father, John Miller shared his love of golf history by hosting a “Heritage Hole.” Each golfer played hole #17 using an antique hickory stick driver and putter—the perfect complement to the Old American course whose layout pays homage to the “Golden Age” of golf course architecture.
A special thanks to Justin Leonard and The Old American Golf Club for hosting Providence, Cindy Sloan, alumni parent golf chairman, as well as the host committee: Blake Bozman, Chuck Griege, Bill McClung, Nick Merrick, Chris Messick, John Miller, Patrick Nugent, Bill Sharp, Cindy and John Sloan, Chris Thomason, and Ray Washburne.
