2017 is going to be an exciting year for golf in Wilmington!! The Wells Fargo Championship will be played at Eagle Point Golf Club the week of May 1st. Also, The First Tee of Greater Wilmington has broken ground on a new facility just for TFT of Greater Wilmington members at the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course. There will be a three hole loop, practice area, and eventually an indoor learning facility as well. We encourage all of our CJGT kids to get involved with The First Tee. We are looking at having an accelerated class for our more advanced CJGT members. If you want to be a part of the Wells Fargo activities, you need to be a The First Tee of Greater Wilmington member!! Let me know if you are interested!
