Call for Muralists

Calling all muralists! Wyndham Rewards, in partnership with Creative Greensboro, First Tee – Central Carolina and the Wyndham Championship, are beginning work on a mural that will represent the history of the Greensboro Six and their significance to one of the chapter’s main program locations, Gillespie Golf Course.

The course, which is a local landmark, has deep roots in the Civil Rights Movement. On December 7, 1955, six Black men led by Dr. George Simkins played the course in defiance of the whites-only rules. Their arrest and ensuing court case would eventually reach the highest court in the land and lead to the integration of Gillespie Golf Course seven years later. These men would later become known as the Greensboro Six.

A mural representing their story and impact will be placed on First Tee — Central Carolina’s Learning Center at Gillespie Golf Course and unveiled publicly during the Wyndham Championship Jr. Golf Clinic on August 5, 2024 to kick off Wyndham Championship tournament week.
