Southside Business Men's Club
At last Wednesday's Past President's Day celebration, SBMC members had the great honor of seeing many of the Presidents who've led our club, during the last 40 years. Their dedication to this organization was tremendous, and their feats will benefit the Southside of Jacksonville for years to come.
But rather than dwelling on their actions, take a good look at these men. See the scars and wrinkles that they have earned, working for Jacksonville. Notice that many of them still reside in this community. Most are regularly active in this organization. These men ARE the Southside of Jacksonville. They have earned and deserve your respect.
When you come to a meeting, or Club event, take an extra moment to recognize them, and thank them for their passion in helping develop the Southside of Jacksonville, into what it is today.

MONTHLY GOLF OUTING
SBMC MONTHLY GOLF OUTING - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th AT DEERWOOD COUNTRY CLUB
The next SBMC monthly golf outing will be at Deerwood Country Club. The date is Friday, September 26th and we'll have a shotgun start at 12:00PM. The cost is $50.00 (+ tax) per player and includes range balls.
Deerwood has seen more than 50 years of legendary golf. In 1960, golf architect George Cobb put Deerwood Country Club on the map by designing a stunning course that would eventually draw the attention of professional golfers, including competitors who came to Deerwood for the Greater Jacksonville Open (now known as THE PLAYERS Championship).
In 2004, Deerwood Country Club's entire golf facility underwent a comprehensive renovation. During this time, award-winning golf architect Brian Silva developed a brand-new, par-72 course with five sets of tees ranging from 5,228 yards for the reds to 7,261 yards for the championship tees.
We have a maximum of 36 participants. If you want to join us please contact Nico Hogeveen at 904-403-6754 or [email protected] to reserve your spot(s).
