Putting Green’s Entrepreneur Program
Putting Green was designed to be a youth driven business. In 2001, students helped to develop Putting Green’s business plan. In 2009, Putting Green began a unique collaboration with South Central Technical College to hold a 12 week course entitled “The Business of Putting Green: A Course for Entrepreneurs.” The course brought together high school students and local business owners to learn what it takes to be a small business owner, using Putting Green as a case study.
