With the golf season just gearing up, it is important to know where you stand now, to make progress throughout the season.  Having an official GHIN Handicap is a great way to keep track of your rounds and improvement.  This will also make it fair and fun to play different types of matches with friends, local club members, or even co-workers.  I am even guilty of not keeping an accurate handicap in past years and saw my golf game suffer because of it.  I use an easy system now to make this very convenient.  As soon as I finish a round, I will jump onto Golfhouston.com and post my rounds.  Here is a step by step process to post your score and get your official GHIN Handicap through Golf Houston Club.

1) Click the tab that says Get USGA Handicap, at the top of the website.  Then hit Subscribe Now.

October 2012 (Houston, TX)—Pro-Vision Academy hosted its 7th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, October 15, 2012 at Westwood Golf Course, raising nearly $50,000.00 for Pro-Vision’s students.  Notable participants included NBA star Bob Sura and NBA head coach and Pro-Vision board member Jeff Van Gundy. The tournament kicked off with registration at 10:30a and a shot gun start at 12p. In addition to golf, attendees had the opportunity to win a free day of golf for four at various golf courses, signed sports memorabilia, wine tours, and more from the tournament’s raffle. Since the start of the yearly tournament in 2006, the event has been chaired by the Vice Chair of Pro-Vision’s Executive Board of Directors Paul Steets of The GMS Group, along with fellow Board Member David Aaronson of CBRE.

“The Golf Tournament is one of three annual signature events that raise funds to support Pro-Vision’s mission of ‘inspiring hope and purpose by building confidence through character’ in Houston’s most vulnerable youth. A good time is always had by all, as everyone always looks forward to an opportunity to support our students while ‘putting for a purpose, ” says Pro-Vision’s founder and Executive Director Mr. Roynell Young. 

Pro-Vision is a non-profit organization which operates, among other programs, the Pro-Vision Middle School and the Vision Academy High School on its 21-acre campus in the Sunnyside community.  Founded in 1990, Pro-Vision, opened the first single-gender public school in Texas in 1995.  Since the beginning it has offered young men from Houston’s most under-served neighborhoods the guidance and support they need to realize their full potential academically, morally, and spiritually.
