Time to Tee Up

First Tee Coastal Carolinas’ 2023 First Tee Player Card offers discounted rates at some of southeastern North Carolina’s favorite courses.

First Tee Coastal Carolinas, headquartered in Shallotte and serving a six-county region in North and South Carolina, has begun offering its 2023 First Tee Player Card for a $100 donation. This card is the key to significant savings at some of the area’s finest golf courses, and the material benefit to the community and its youth is the financial support to the local First Tee that it provides.

Available to all property owners and residents of Brunswick and New Hanover counties, the First Tee Player Card provides a discounted rate for play at specified times and with various prior booking windows, at courses such as Beau Rivage, Sea Trail Byrd, Ocean Ridge Leopard’s Chase, Meadowlands, River’s Edge, Thistle and Wilmington Municipal — nearly 50 courses in all.  Most courses allow a single play, but some will permit return visits at the discounted rate. The Player Card is a great way to explore courses you might not have played and to return to the ones that you remember fondly.

And at prices including cart that range from $20 to $50, with many in the $30 range, golf will become even more affordable for you.

First Tee Coastal Carolina

First Tee Coastal Carolinas is part of the national First Tee organization that provides life skills to youth aged 7 to 17 through the game of golf. Students are taught Nine Core Values, including honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and other valuable qualities to build the foundation for a successful life. Golf skills are honed, interpersonal abilities are developed and respect for others is underscored in a series of programs available year round. In Brunswick and New Hanover counties, more than 10,000 youth are served every year through First Tee activities.

The Player Card revenue is an important part of the financial foundation of the local First Tee.

Program Manager Terry Mauney, who played on both the PGA Tour and the PGA Champions Tour, says “When you purchase our First Tee Player Card, you are supporting our mission to create better citizens through golf and also getting a wonderful opportunity to play some really great golf courses.”
