To learn the history of the KidsZone, a fun space for kids and families at the AT&T Byron Nelson, I interviewed Ed Reeve of the Salesmanship Club of Dallas, which hosts the tournament every year.
I learned the AT&T Byron Nelson was one of the first PGA tournaments to have a KidsZone – ours started in 2008. Back then, it was just a big tent. Now it is a whole building with games, activities and air conditioning. They have arts and crafts, Xbox, props for imaginative play (play kitchen, toy cars, etc.), bounce houses, a balance beam, putt-putt and – new this year – foosball and air hockey!
According to Mr. Reeve, on Saturday and Sunday of tournament week, 1,000 to 2,000 kids will pass through the KidsZone – kids of all ages “have a ball” there. I will be interviewing kids to find out what they think about the KidsZone and I expect to learn that they do all have a blast there.
I hope you bring your kids by so you can see for yourself just how kid-friendly the AT&T Byron Nelson (and Momentous Institute) can be.
