First Tee – Central Washington broke ground on our new Practice Facility in June of 2019 and it was completed in the fall of 2020. Located within Yakima’s SOZO Sports Complex at 2200 S 36th Ave., the five-acre facility provides easier accessibility for participants in the greater Yakima and Union Gap area, and the opportunity to better serve those with disabilities. A new administration and classroom building gives us the ability to provide year round programming, a comfortable area for participants to sit down and work on their yardage books, and prevents the need to cancel classes in the event of inclement weather.
Tremendous thanks go out to our project sponsors who have brought us this far:
- Terrace Heights Development
- Yakima Southwest Rotary
- Rotary Trust
- Sunrise Rotary
- Granite Construction
- Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation
- PayneWest Insurance
- Russell Landscaping
- Tri Ply Construction
- SOZO Sports of Central Washington
- Paint Smith
- Sevigny Construction
We are not done yet though. We would like to construct an enclosed practice driving area sometime in the near future, and there are several other small improvements which need to be made to enhance the experience for our program participants and upgrade our facility.
