"My takeaway is we need to make golf courses an integral part of the community. The First Green is a huge step toward that by bringing the kids on. The (corporate social) sustainability report shows all the ways a golf course can be part of the community. That's a trend we can really focus on in making it happen. Golf courses are more than a place to hold a wedding. They can be such an integral part of the community.
It's such an obvious resource -- this big, open green space that's quite often underutilized during school hours that has so much to offer kids in terms of the environment and animals and getting out to get fresh air. It's great to see there's a way we in the golf industry can take advantage of that and make it part of the community."
