Siblings’ Success: From Struggling to Honor Roll

“Before coming to the CLC, my son’s grades were D’s and C’s. Since getting tutoring with Ms. Sioux, my son E. went from a D student to B’s and my son S. was on the Honor Roll for two grade periods. I am super grateful and happy they have gone up in grades. Thank you CLC!” –P.G. (mother of 4th and 3rd grade students)

“I am beginning to understand the hows and whys of the charts of grammar. 1st person = I, 2nd person = you, 3rd person = they and how it affects the ‘be’ word: I am, you are, he is, she is, it is, we are, you are, they are. Also, (I understand) the different forms of the ‘be’ word and how to use it properly in a sentence.” -C.G.

Innisbrook ResortInnisbrook Resort

Located at 36750 Us Highway 19 N in Palm, Harbor, Fla. is Innisbrook, A Salamander Golf and Spa Resort. Innisbrook is home to not one, not two but four championship courses all in one location. These four courses were each designed by architect Lawrence Packard – including the top-rated Copperhead course, which welcomes the world’s finest players each March when the PGA TOUR visits Innisbrook for the Transitions Championship.

The Course

  • The CLC Benefit will be held on the South Course
  • Par 71 • 6,620 yards
  • At over 6,600 yards, South is reminiscent of a links-style design, both in terms of rolling terrain and numerous fairway bunkering. Ample waste bunkers, a total of 10 water hazards, undulating terrain, and the Gulf of Mexico breezes all combine to make South another great Innisbrook challenge that’s become a favorite of our returning guests and event planners.
