TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The tape was officially cut on Wednesday night at the new First Tee Lake Erie facility on the back of the Inverness Club.

The facility near Hill Ave. hopes to make the game of golf more affordable and accessible to everyone. It includes a full length driving range, putting green and two short game greens.

In addition to the sponsors and donors present for the ribbon cutting, the club’s first member, Lyanah Hall, a 10-year-old fifth grader from Holland Elementary.

“I’m very excited,” said Hall. “I’m pretty proud to be the first, but I’m really excited. First I came here and it is not built, and then I come here and it is. I just can’t believe it. It is wonderful. It’s super amazing. “

The building is also home to a new Boys and Girls Club of Toledo, which gives the two organizations a chance to join their efforts and get kids to play golf.
