The Carol S. Petrea Youth Golf Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization, was established in October 2004 in order to help impact the lives of young people within Brunswick County, NC through golf and life-enhancing values. A Board of Directors was formed to help establish operating and fundraising objectives. With the generous gift from our founders and the hard work of many, the foundation officially became The First Tee of Brunswick County in November 2005 enjoying a permanent home at The Golf Club at Cinghiale Creek.

We have come a long way since 2004! Today, the purpose of the Foundation is to govern, lead and oversee The First Tee local organizations in Northeast South Carolina, and Eastern and Southeastern North Carolina.

The Golf Club at Cinghiale Creek is a three-green, eighteen tee golf course, with a practice putting green clubhouse and learning center for the sole use of The First Tee participants. Within this area, any child age 7-18 living in Brunswick County will be able to join The First Tee of Brunswick County to experience golf skills and life skills in a fun and exciting environment. Our goal is to touch the lives of children throughout our county.

The First Tee of Brunswick County is accepting all donations in order to complete construction on the Learning Center and the Golf Club at Cinghiale Creek. Capital Improvement campaigns are in the works for golf course expansion and a separate practice facility.
