We are passionate about nurturing the potential of every child in our community. That’s why Orange County Government Parks and Recreation invested money in re-doing the golf facility for our Y Golf & Learning Center after school program.
Thanks to Orange County Government Parks and Recreation, our Tangelo Park location’s Y Golf & Learning Center now has a nicer facility that will bring the community together, not only for the kids to learn the sport, but also through community events that keep kids off the street. The improvements to the course include:
- Replacement of putting greens with low maintenance/high quality surface
- Replacement of hitting bay nets
The Y Golf & Learning Center is offered to 1st-5th grade students attending Tangelo Park Elementary School and is a combination learning and golf program. We provide kids with homework help and teach life skills. We are also in the process of unveiling a Lockheed Martin Technology Satellite Center which will open the first quarter of 2012. This program is another way the Y can engage children and teens in positive, fun activities.
The Y Golf & Learning Center provides easy access to a sport kids otherwise would not have access to. And we don’t want to stop at the Tangelo Park location, but we want to replicate the program at our other outreach Ys, including Wayne Densch, South Orlando and Osceola County. Learn how you can help.
Thursday, December 1, at our Tangelo Park location we thanked Orange County Government Parks and Recreation for engaging students in this program and investing money to re-do our 9 hole putting green practice facility.
