First Tee-Naples/Collier has reached the halfway mark on the capital campaign for its new Learning Center thanks to the patrons who attended Swing Fore the Future.
The sold-out event featured 13 one-of-a-kind auction items including artwork by local golf artist Christopher “CR” Obetz. The evening included a fireside chat with PGA and Champions Golf Legends Bernhard Langer, Peter Jacobsen and Jeff Maggert.
Last year, First Tee began a capital campaign with a goal of raising $10 million. The Learning Center will be part of a new public golf course on the site of the old Golden Gate Country Club.
