Tournament honors Billy Maxwell

Jacksonville Beach team wins club team championship


On Nov. 18, 80 golfers and guests gathered to honor the late Billy Maxwell at his home club, Hyde Park Golf Club. On Nov. 22, Jacksonville Area Golf Association and the Northern PGA Chapter conducted the 24th Club Team Championship at World Golf Village-Slammer & Squire with 25 teams competing. Here’s a look at the tournaments:

Billy Maxwell Memorial Tournament

Festivities kicked off with World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Dennis Walters entertaining the crowd with his inspiring mix of trick shots, humor and message of never being afraid to dream big.

Former PGA TOUR commissioner Deane Beman then shared a few funny recollections of his playing days with Maxwell. JAGA closed the proceedings by presenting a plaque in honor of Maxwell for all he did for golf locally and nationally throughout his career. It was presented to his daughter and son-in-law, Melanie and Tommy Bevill, who now run the Hyde Park golf facility.

24th Club Team Championship

Jax Beach Golf Club topped 24 other teams from Northeast Florida to claim the 24th Club Team Championship at World Golf Village-Slammer & Squire when they fired a 17-under-par team score of 127.

The winning team featured Northern Chapter PGA professional Thomas Gelsomino and amateur partners Brent Dietz, Keanu Evans and Michael Lupi.

The format was two net best balls of the foursome. JAGA and the Northern Chapter of the North Florida PGA co-hosted the event.
