July 12, 2017 - Philadelphia Cricket Club, along with members of the Philadelphia Golf Alliance, took part in the region’s inaugural First Green program June 6 at the facility’s Wissahickon Course. Whitemarsh Elementary School third graders (approx. 95) broke into small groups to visit various activity stations positioned on Wissahickon’s first and 18th holes. Four locations focused on environmental education, two on golf.
“This was a fantastic community event,” said Dan Meersman, Cricket’s Director of Grounds, who coordinated the event. “It all starts with awareness of golf and the environment.”
