)-- The First Tee of the Triangle, a nonprofit organization dedicated to impacting the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf, has announced that it will host the Dennis Walters Golf Show and a free junior golf clinic on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hillandale Golf Course, located at 1600 Hillandale Road. A member of the Professional Golf Association (PGA) Hall of Fame, Walters travels the country performing shows of spectacular golf tricks, such as hitting precise shots using bizarre items like fishing rods and cell phones as clubs. His show also features tricks by his dog, Bucky.
Following the one-hour golf show, The First Tee participants, ages 5 to 17, are invited to partake in a free golf clinic. Registration for the event is available here.
“We are excited to host The Dennis Walters Golf Show and free junior clinic,” said Dick Baker, executive director of The First Tee of the Triangle. “Dennis is a phenomenal golfer and performer, and he does a great job incorporating The First Tee’s nine core values into his show. This is an awesome event for families and people of all ages, and we invite everyone to join us for a morning of fun and golf as the school year begins.”
