” I have always thought First Tee was a great organization. The seamless way it ties together golf skills and education for the youth was extremely important to me. I joined the Board of Directors in hopes that my connections in the golf and business industries would be of service to the mission and successful future of the organization. I look forward to seeing where First Tee – Sandhills will go in the years to come!”
