|Driving range opening in Vidalia|
Larry Wagoner, a local business owner and bi-vocational pastor of Dunbarton Baptist Church, loves using the game of golf to talk about his passion for his ministry.
Wagoner's Web site, FarGolf, Inc., is a Christian golfing ministry designed to improve a person's golf game life on and off the golf course.
It has had almost 2,500 hits over the past few years.
Wagoner is talking his mission to the field - literally. He is opening the FarGolf Field of Dreams Golf Driving Range on Logan Sewell Road near Fruit of the Loom.
The 15-acre lighted driving range is scheduled to open on August 31.
The driving range will have 35 tee boxes that are 25-foot by 400-foot. The range will be just over 300 yards.
"There will also be a ball dispenser and a shed for people to get out of the sun," Wagoner said.
One small bucket of balls will be $3 or a person can buy two buckets for $5. Each golfer will be given a card and when they get to their 10th bucket they receive a free bucket.
Revenue from the range balls will be distributed to local charities
Wagoner said he hopes to add a putting green, bunker and minituare golf course to the facility down the road.
"This is just something I've been wanting to do for my ministry," he said. "This will be beneficial in more ways than one. It will give kids something to do on Friday and Saturday nights."
The range will be open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.
Anyone wishing to donate to the charities through FarGolf Inc. can send a check to 7191 Hwy. 84/65, Ferriday, La. 71334.
