First Tee-Naples/Collier will host the Swing Fore the Future gala on Feb. 13 at Arthrex, Inc.
Christopher “CR” Obetz, the artist who is considered to have pioneered Pop Golf Art, has donated artwork that will be featured in the Swing Fore the Future auction. Among his donations are an original pixel portrait of golf legend Jack Nicklaus, as well as a one-of-a-kind NFT of the painting and original Anthony Ravielli sketch with handwritten notes by Bobby Jones.
Proceeds will fund First Tee’s new Learning Center, including a BigShots Golf Driving Range facility and a 12-hole Nicklaus Designs golf course.
