Pro golfer Chris Arceneaux will be returning home to Lafayette to extend the reach of his organization called the Darby Foundation after eighteen years in New York City. Chris will launch a new Program there called a Path to Success Speaking Tour! “There is nothing like home court advantage! Exciting things are happening!” says Mr. Arceneaux

MAKING THE TURN!
It’s part of a series of golf-related activities assembled by the Lafayette native to broaden services for youth and people interested in learning the socially fun and historic sport through his Darby Foundation. The activities on Thursday-Friday, May 23-24, also include a celebrity pro-am tournament, a “skins” golf competition and a golf seminar, and come just prior to the Toussaint Golf Association’s annual James “Baba” Lastrape tournament.

Arceneaux grew up in Lafayette and spent much of his youth at the Hebert Municipal layout, and returning there for the clinic and exhibition made sense according to Hebert manager Mike Guidry. “He pretty much hung around the golf course his entire junior life,” Guidry said. “Probably from around the sixth grade on he was out here. He eventually got a small job on the cart staff, one thing led to another and suddenly he’s in New York as a pro and starting this youth initiative. He’s pretty much worked his way up in golf.” According to its web site (www.darbyfoundation.org), the Darby Foundation is designed to introduce students to golf and to a variety of basic skills, concepts, and aspects of golf. Eventually, the hope is that the youths will not only use these skills to play the game throughout their lives, but also learn how to apply the same effort into mastering life skills.
