The Frances P. Jordon Golf Learning Center was built at Coonskin Park in conjunction with Kanawha County Parks & Recreation and the Coonskin Park Foundation.  The vision was initiated by local Kanawha County businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Jordon.  The 28 acre Golf Learning Center officially opened on April 9, 2011 and has a 60 x 100 natural Bermuda tee box, six target greens, state of the art Fiberbuilt Synthetic Turf for inclement weather.  The facility is currently the largest public driving range in the state of West Virginia and is one of the most used facilities in the Kanawha County Park Facilities.

We hope you will consider joining us on April 19, 2018.  Your generosity has a direct and immediate impact on the ability for the West Virginia Golf Association and The First Tee of West Virginia to partner with Kanawha County Parks & Recreation and the Coonskin Park Foundation in order to begin to execute the future plans of the facility.  Plans include installation of a sheltered area covering the synthetic hitting area, and the addition of a short game area completed with putting green, bunkers and chipping areas.  Having a space with these added assets will allow for growth of the program in not only numbers, but additional offerings of classes and camps for area youth.

As in the past, you will be acknowledged according to the sponsorship level of your choice in both on our website and on-site at the project, for your charitable contribution that helps to provide:
