Registration for the First Tee of the Triad’s fall program will open earlier than expected because of an overwhelming success story for the summer edition.
All the summer programs – spread among various Piedmont Triad locations – are filled to capacity. Locations are Gillespie Park in Greensboro, Winston Lake and The Meadowlands in Winston-Salem, Tanglewood Park and Salem Glen in Clemmons, Oak Hollow Golf Course in High Point, Jamestown Park and Greensboro National in Summerfield. With all of the programs at all of the locations, more than 200 Piedmont Triad children are taking part in summer programs at The First Tee of the Triad.
“We are humbled that so many Piedmont Triad families have enrolled their children in our programs,” First Tee of the Triad CEO Mike Barber said. “In 2011, we enrolled 370 children in our programs through the whole year. We have already enrolled more than 600 children for this year, and we have half of the year to go so we are on track to approach 1,000 kids this year. That is a tremendous jump in just two years. It is very gratifying to see the hard work of so many dedicated individuals benefit our region’s children.”
Registration for the fall program will open July 15. Families are encouraged to sign up early.
