Municipality winner: Augusta, Ga., is a community where youngsters are encouraged to play golf. The First Tee of Augusta, founded in 2001, offers eight-week sessions that cost $60 with some 1,000 youngsters participating this past year. The chapter also partners with six elementary schools. This program is free for the 300 kids who are bused to the facility once a week for eight weeks for golf instruction, life skills training and membership in the club. Another 17,000 local youths get golf lessons as part of their PE curriculum. Jones Creek Golf Club, a local public course, hosted an AJGA event this summer. Ray Mundy, the club's owner, donated his course and food for the players and volunteers during the tournament. Finals of the Drive, Pitch and Putt junior competition were held at Augusta National last April. Kids from across the country competed in various skills and age groups on the same ground as the world's best players. They will do so again this April at the 2015 Masters.
