This is a new program we implemented during the 2015 season as a way for our participants to hang out with local police in a friendly atmosphere. During our PLAYer class, several area police, sheriff, and highway patrol came down in uniform in their cruisers to meet our participants. They spoke with our golfers about safety in life, gave the kids a tour of their patrol cruisers and had a fun competition of “Putting with the Police” & “Chipping with the Cops”. They spent the better part of two hours with our junior golfers and made quite the impact in our participant’s lives. We plan on making this an annual event down here at The First Tee of Akron!
We would like to say Thank You to The Akron Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol & Summit County Sheriff Department for sending some officers down to Mud Run for this very special event.
