Gene’s Dream Foundation
Gene’s Dream Foundation is in honor of Gene Weldon, a PGA professional whose lifetime was consumed by contributions to golf in the Carolinas, countless mentoring efforts including the Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman and Charlie Rymer, and selfless love of family, the game of golf and our youth.
Weldon’s legacy will be carried on through the foundation in his name and the Mentor Cup on October 27, 2018 where junior golf mentees will be nominated to play with their mentors based on golf proficiency, the quality of their interaction and ability to provide a positive example for others.
David Feherty will participate in the event kickoff with a two hour performance benefiting the foundation. We remember Gene’s warm heart and smile, and can already hear him laughing at Feherty Off Tour: Wandering Around on His Own.
