Elmore County: Tee 2 Green Golf Program

Posted by: Judd Davis - bio | email

Millbrook, AL (WSFA) - For kids, playing sports is a great way to stay in shape and learn a lot of life lessons.   But some sports are tougher to get into.   Take golf, you need clubs and access to a course.

Saysana Kongchan loves the game of golf.  He's been playing for about 20 years.  His parents moved to the U.S. from Laos, and they sacrificed everything so he could have a good childhood.   Now he wants to pay it forward.  His goal, to provide the clubs and a facility where kids can learn and play golf for free.    "It's a good game for kids to learn," Kongchan said.   "It teaches them about integrity and gives them skills their parents will be proud of."

Kongchan created the Tee 2 Green program to try and open the door to a game that so many kids are locked out of.   "A lot of these kids have never picked up a club before.  My hope is to give them access."

His "Tee 2 Green" program is giving these kids a chance to try something new.   His long term goal is to create a free par three course at his facility off the Alabama River Parkway in Millbrook.    And you can help.   He's hosting an open house Saturday July 24th at the Tee 2 Green Golf Development Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  It's located off the Alabama River Parkway, just off highway 143 in Millbrook.
