The ceremony also celebrated The First Tee of St. Petersburg youth development program at Twin Brooks, which, despite some delays, will include a mentoring center for the program that is expected to be completed next year.
Jwan Brown, a participant in The First Tee program, says, “It helps a lot to be outside. Some people think golf is not that hard but you have to use your mind. It’s very mathematical.”
Malachi McCloud, who is also in the program, says, “Golf isn’t like any other sport. And with golf you always get the ball.”
