1st Annual “Fore Lyme Disease Golf Tournament” Registrations now open.

Dear Friends,

The time has come for us to take the initiative and embark upon our 1st annual “Fore Lyme Disease Golf Tournament”. Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases, commonly referred to as co-infections, have impacted our families tremendously. We both have children that endure chronic debilitating symptoms that include fatigue, headaches, anxiety, nausea, and joint pain – all from a tick bite!
Steve’s eldest daughter, Courtney 17, was misdiagnosed for over two years and now suffers from persistent chronic Lyme (as well as two other tick-borne diseases). Battling Lyme for the past five years, she has missed most high school milestones like attending classes with her friends, school dances, birthday parties and prom. Chris’ wife Kelly, daughter Sadie, and son Sean also suffer from Lyme disease and co-infections. Each was misdiagnosed due to inaccurate test results which prolongs the illness and increases the complexity of treatment.
Lyme and co-infections are complex diseases that are often difficult to diagnose and treat because it mimics other illnesses including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, arthritis, and depression. Reliable diagnostic tests are not available and the hallmark “bulls eye” is not present in nearly half of the people that become infected! Furthermore, misdiagnosis during the early stages of Lyme can lead to chronic forms of the disease. Because Lyme is poorly understood, treatment and medicinal protocols are controversial.
Recently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced there are over 300,000 new cases of Lyme each year! This number is staggering. We don’t want to see this happen to you, your child, spouse or loved ones.
We hope that you will consider supporting our cause and join us on
Monday, September 8, 2014 for a fabulous day of golf at The International in Bolton. Proceeds will benefit the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (TBDA), a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness, promoting advocacy and supporting initiatives to find a cure for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.
We look forward to seeing you in September.
Steve Catalano & Chris Sargent

The Pines Golf Course ranked toughest in Massachusetts by Boston Business Journal

The Pines Ranked number 1
“The top 10 toughest golf courses in Mass.”

“Massachusetts has some famous golf courses, but which ones are really the toughest? Each year, the US Golf Association gives golf courses across the country a “USGA rating,” according to the USGA Course Rating System.

Not surprisingly, all of Massachusetts’ top 10 toughest golf courses are private courses, according to the BBJ Research Department, which last week ranked the area’s 25 toughest golf courses according to their USGA rating.

The Rick Smith Golf Academy is now open for the season

PGA Certified Teaching Professional, Todd Dugan takes the reigns as Director of Instruction

BIO

Todd Dugan is a PGA of America member with Certified Professional status in Instruction. With over 10 years’ experience teaching and more than 6,000 hours logged on the lesson tee, Todd brings a wealth of experience and education to his instruction. Todd has taught with some of the top golf instruction companies, including; GolfTEC, Golf Digest School, and most recently as Director of Instruction at Golfsmith in Northborough, Massachusetts.

In harmony with academy founder, Rick Smith, Todd uses a “flexible” approach to swing development, realizing that two otherwise efficient swings need not appear identical. Thusly, the function of the swing is to produce the conditions at impact which are required by physical law to produce the desired ball flight.  Always then evaluating swings for the impacts that they produce, the path to improvement is clearer for both the teacher and student. Areas targeted for improvement are prioritized and worked on one at a time until assimilated with a “building block” approach.

Whether you are a beginner or a “scratch” player, Todd has the experience, passion, and proven track record to help you realize your personal potential!

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

* Instruction writer for #1 ranked golf website, GolfWRX.com

* Multiple winner, New England PGA tournament circuit
