Kids across the nation are gaining accessibility to the game of golf, thanks to an alliance with Topgolf®, the PGA TOUR and the LPGA. On March 19, junior golfers (ages 6-17) from The First Tee and LPGA-USGA Girls Golf enjoyed an afternoon of free game play, golf instruction, food and beverage at Topgolf venues in Jacksonville, Fla., Gilbert, Ariz., Alpharetta, Ga., Dallas and Denver. At the first annual Junior PLAY event, Topgolf announced it is now offering free game play for charitable organizations committed to youth leadership and mentorship, in addition to any high school golf team.
“The PGA TOUR and LPGA are collaborating with Topgolf on developing initiatives to help grow the game,” said Ty Votaw, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer. “PGA TOUR Charities is excited to bring LPGA-USGA Girls Golf and The First Tee together to experience a free Topgolf event through Topgolf Junior PLAY. Topgolf is having tremendous success attracting golfers and non-golfers alike by providing a fun, casual atmosphere at its venues. Alongside this event, Topgolf is announcing free game play at Topgolf for charitable organizations committed to youth leadership and mentorship, in addition to any high school golf team. Collectively this speaks to the commitment of our respective organizations to grow our sport.”
