First Activation Will Revitalize Golf Program at Denver West High School
GOLFTEC and SkyTrak are excited and proud to announce a partnership with Drive Fore The Future, a charitable foundation committed to making golf more accessible to individuals from all socioeconomic backgrounds. This partnership aims to fund underprivileged high school golf teams across the United States, enabling them to enjoy the game of golf and the valuable life skills it teaches.
As part of this commitment, GOLFTEC, SkyTrak and Drive Fore The Future will provide golf equipment, golf simulators, and other resources to underprivileged high school golf programs, helping to level the playing field and provide opportunities for young athletes to develop valuable life skills.
The first collaboration between GOLFTEC, SkyTrak and Drive Fore The Future took place at West High School in Denver, CO, where the organizations donated sets of golf clubs and a simulator setup from SkyTrak that includes course play from TruGolf E6 Connect. In addition, apparel will be donated to the entire boys and girls golf teams.
Ryan French and Chris Gallagher are the co-founders of Drive Fore The Future. “This collaboration is truly special, as it will help to ensure that high school students from all backgrounds have the resources they need to participate in the game and experience the benefits of golf,” said French.
The support at Denver West represents the beginning of a long-term, shared commitment to expanding access to the game of golf and its benefits. Over the course of the next year, GOLFTEC and Drive Fore The Future aim to support several high school golf programs across the country.
