Martin J Kolar

  On Wednesday, March 17, 2021, Martin J Kolar, loving father of three daughters, passed away at the age of 77. Once he retired from the corporate world, he moved from the Chicago area to Myrtle Beach to live out his life dream of being a full time Golf Junky, and divided his time between the links and working jobs or volunteering his time with anything associated with golf.  Marty was a First Tee volunteer and advocate for several years, dedicating his time and efforts in any way he could to help promote junior golf and the 9 Core Values. Marty spent his time collecting donations, cutting down and sorting clubs, as well as volunteering at Legends Resort with our After School Program as an assistant coach. On top of donating his time and effort, he also provided expert instruction for  young golfers and made an incredible impact as a coach as well as an advocate for the program in the local community. Marty was a skilled golfer, integral coach, and will sincerely be missed.

Danny Nystrom

 

Danny Nystrom, 45, of Surfside Beach, SC passed away unexpectedly at his home from a heart attack on January 25, 2021.

Danny was a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a graduate of the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach, and valued the time he spent volunteering with First Tee while there. He was an avid golfer and loved playing with family and friends, but he also wouldn’t hesitate to be paired up with a group needing a fourth and enjoyed getting to know fellow golfers.

First Tee helps to share the game he loved so much with youth locally and throughout the country. Thank you for honoring Danny’s memory in this way.
