The Idaho Golf Association and the First Tee of Idaho announced on Monday that beginning this week, they will be co-tenants of a new office location on S Cole Rd, in Boise.
Though their mission statements may differ, both organizations are fixtures in the golf community throughout the state, and help to grow the game and enable participation in all age groups.
“We are so excited to share a space with the First Tee of Idaho,” said Caleb Cox, Executive Director at the Idaho Golf Association. “Though we’ll still operate independently from one another, we now also can collaborate on some new initiatives that we’ve been hopeful could happen for quite some time.”
“I’ve personally known the folks at the First Tee for a long time, so I’m extremely excited to be around them on a day to day basis,” added Cox.
Nick Blasius, the Executive Director of the First Tee of Idaho, echoed those sentiments, “We at the First Tee are elated to be under the same roof as the IGA. I’m excited at the prospect of collaborating with the Idaho Junior Tour, and helping make the game even more prominent in the state. Our main goal is to better the game of golf in Idaho and have a positive impact on youth in our communities, and I think this is a massive step in that direction.”
The new location is large enough to house the entirety of both staffs, meaning that all eight full-time employees will be under the same roof, working to push the game of golf forward in the state.
The office suite is located at 208 S Cole Rd.
