Jekyll Island U.S. Kids Golf Regional - Practice Day and Day 1

Jekyll Island is the destination for the Southeastern U. S. Kids Golf Regional. The competition is stronger with kids coming in from most every where including Canada. We drove up Thursday afternoon hoping to get in a round but the wet weather discouraged us! Friday we had a tee time with Bryn S. so all went well with the practice round. Daddy Caddy was taking notes!

After the practice round, a little fun in the bouncy house and slide was a good energy booster!
Saturday morning Round #1 arrived, and Caddie Maria. The day was beautiful, and AA posted her best score in a tournament as an 8 year old (40; 4 over par; she was one under the first four holes).
AA had a birdie on the first hole, then a few bogies, but an overall good round.
Final Hole #18 (played back nine of the Indian Mound course). Scoring table:
AA was in 6th place (of 12 girls) after round one. After a quick buffet lunch with the Sorge family, we headed off to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center (we were going to have pizza with the Sorge's and Chao's but things got complicated; had dinner in the Pub Friday and Saturday evenings). 
We were glad that Coach/Caddy Kathy N. came along with Olivia Messana and her Mom to the turtle center.

Some of the turtle tanks have a mirror above, so you can see the turtle:
Messana's and Coach Kathy (with her selfiewink, a remote for taking selfies):
AA loves her new hatchling/juvenile sea turtle - she named her, Georgia. You can read about our 2013 visit to this center here.
