LPGA event will admit area children for free

The LPGA Tour's newest tournament is doing its part to attract the sport's youngest fans, and a paying adult. The Asahi Ryokuken International Championship, scheduled for Sept. 20-23 at Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club, will be giving away more than 50,000 tickets to area children under the age of 15. Ten thousand tickets have been set aside for Richmond and Columbia counties.

First Tee golf course takes shape

Take a drive through the upper end of Damascus Road and look around. What you'll see is a Palmer Course Design golf course emerging from a barren area that once was the site of a run-down housing project known as Village Square. What is known as the First Tee Augusta golf course is quickly rounding into shape. The six-hole course, dedicated to providing affordable and accessible playing and learning opportunities for beginning golfers ages 8-17, is scheduled to open in September. Ground was broken on Dec. 22.

First Tee golf course to open in April

Blaine Patin is drawing up big plans for area youngsters interested in golf. Patin is on board as the head pro at the six-hole First Tee Augusta golf course, which won't open until April.

When the course does open, Patin will follow the credo of the First Tee, a nationwide initiative of the World Golf Foundation that will help youngsters learn the game.
