)-- 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 it has partnered with Hillandale Golf Course to host the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program this fall. The six-week golf instruction program, designed for girls ages 5 to 17 years old, runs every Saturday through Nov. 16.
The program features four levels of instruction, each with an hour-long weekly session. This includes LPGA Level I New and Level I Beginner, designed for girls who have little to no exposure to the game of golf; Level II Beginner to Intermediate for girls who can play a golf hole from 125 yards to the tee; and Level III Intermediate to Advanced for girls who can score at least 65 or better on nine holes of regulation play. The program costs $25 per student via an annual LPGA registration fee or $10 per event. Girls must register for each event individually.
A kickoff event held Sept. 29 drew 68 girls and featured Duke University’s head women’s golf coach Dan Brooks, who served among the program’s volunteer coaches.
Registration is open on a per-event basis. For more information or to register, visit http://bit.ly/19Nft7C.
“This is a terrific partnership for us and Hillandale Golf Course, and bringing the core values and healthy habits into Durham is one of our goals,” said Brandon Baker, interim director of The First Tee of the Triangle. “We are excited to have girls from the community come together to further their golf game during the program.”
