The Palmer Course
Named after its designer, Arnold Palmer, this course is one of the more forgiving at PGA National from tee to fairway, known as a risk/reward game. The open fairways and larger "Champion Bermuda" greens can be quite accommodating and invite players to take a chance if they dare - as golfers are not overly penalized for missing the fairway or primary rough on most holes. There is a considerable amount of undulation through the fairway, presenting the opportunity for uneven lies and creative shot-making. The Palmer has a great series of finishing holes, with the 18th being one of the most scenic par 5s on the property.
Each golf participant will enjoy the following:
*Breakfast To Go upon arrival and Awards Ceremony following golf
*One golf cart per two players
*Premium goft bag to each player
*18 holes of golf
We are excited to announce we are entering into the third year of United Way funding for our PACEWorks! program this summer. What is PACEWorks!? It's a program designed to work with girls utilizing an education and career readiness component to receive career exploration and guidance, improve academic success and increase basic employability skills and trade specific skills. Upon completion, girls will successfully exit the program with marketable skills that prepare them for employment or articulation into postsecondary education.
Career/technical skills are the foundation of PACEworks! It includes a course of study to provide girls with the skills needed for entry-level employment. Girls learn valuable job-related skills and use tools of the trade to perform actual job tasks. Traditional and non-traditional careers are included and the curriculum integrates academic skills into each of the career/vocational tasks.
PACE has continued to build partnerships with local businesses, organizations and schools to enhance the PACEWorks! curriculum. Girls have the opportunity to participate in mini-internships, attend skills-specific workshops, partner with mentors and work towards industry recognized certifications.
Twelve girls recently completed the first 10-week basic skills class in our Culinary Program. Seven of the twelve will have the opportunity to participate in an advanced culinary class beginning in June.
PACE Center for Girls is seeking your help in providing an opportunity of a lifetime for our girls. In the fall of 2013, we will be embarking on a trip to the heart of our nation, Washington, D.C. The objective of our trip will bridge the gap between the academic study of government and politics. It will put a “real face to government” while providing valuable insights and knowledge that are not available in the classroom.
The girls will be treated to a comprehensive look at Washington, D.C. from the inside – ranging from a special V.I.P. tour of the White House, a symbol of vigor of American democracy to the U.S. Capitol, where under one of the world’s largest domes – the magnificent cast iron Rotunda – members of House and Senate engage in spirited debates that determine the laws of the land.
Girls will continue to experience Washington, D.C.’s most familiar vistas, such as the U.S. Supreme Court, Vietnam Women’s Memorial, Justice Department, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of African Art, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Nation Museum of Women in the Arts, Arlington National Cemetery, Washington Monument, Ford’s Theatre, F.B.I. Building, Pentagon, Kennedy Center, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, just to name a few of the most venerable and celebrated monuments and museums, theatres and galleries in our Nation’s Capital.
Please help us to provide an unforgettable educational, cultural and a lifetime experience through the exploration of Washington, D.C. Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in our girls - tomorrow’s leaders. Would you consider a gift to support our vital services for girls? The following amounts will cover the associated costs:
|Hotel Rooms for 10 (2 girls per 1 staff per room x 5 nights)|

2012 - 2013 Outcomes
PACE Center for Girls of Palm Beach County celebrates 17 years of Believing in Girls! PACE...believing in girls...even when they do not believe in themselves. Girls that come to us with little faith in their future because so many have little faith in them. Girls that have been marginalized and victimized and enter the juvenile justice system with a disturbing history of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Yet, girls that are strong and resilient. Girls that find confidence and their own sense of worth. Girls that find those things at PACE believe in themselves because we believe in them!
