Rest In Peace Coach George

We are sad to announce that one of our most loved and respected coaches, George Minnich, recently passed away. George started as a volunteer back in 2016 and within one year, became a certified coach working mostly with our outreach groups which included The Crockett Foundation, HANDY and Boys and Girls Clubs. “I will never forget an amazing gesture by George. Upon becoming a certified coach, we sent him a check for $1,100 for a number of classes that he taught and he told me he was giving it back to First Tee – Broward, as a donation for his gratitude in being able to work with us.” said Jack Bloomfield, Director of Operations. “He was a special guy and an amazing coach and the students he worked with absolutely loved him.” As his obituary reads, “While sorely missed by the multitude of those who love George, we will all get solace picturing him happily golfing in heaven. Though he is gone, he will live on forever in our hearts and minds and for all of those who were fortunate enough to know him.” We will miss you Coach George.
