First Tee coming to the Lowcountry

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

A new organization in the Lowcountry is dedicating itself to impact young lives in a positive way through the game of golf.

The First Tee of the Lowcountry is kicking off its campaign Friday. It is affiliated with the International First Tee nonprofit organization.

It is planning on building a training facility for parents to take their kids for programs to learn how to play the game and learn the values associated with it.

"The Heritage is one of the few tournaments that doesn't have a First Tee attached to it, and so off the bat that's a successful thing," said Team Leader Gerrold Walker. "Bu the more important thing is that it gives an opportunity for kids to learn core values through the game of golf."

The organizers said they are very excited about the support from the Hilton Head and Bluffton Communities.
