Daniel Meggs grew up in Charlotte, N.C. and had a highly successful junior golf career winning the Carolinas Golf Association’s inaugural Dogwood State Junior Boys’ Championship and the Joe Cheves Junior Invitational in 2005 along with the Carolinas PGA Charles Tilghman Junior in 2006. Meggs competed in three straight USGA U.S. Junior Amateurs with a top finish tied for 33rd in 2007. Meggs played collegiate golf at Wake Forest University from 2008-2011. After college, Daniel shared his knowledge and love for golf as the Director of Instruction at TPC Piper Glen where he especially loved working with the junior golfers. In May of 2017, just weeks before his wedding to his high school sweetheart Jordan, Meggs was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Daniel fought courageously against the cancer for over 2 years before passing away in February of 2020.

Golf legend Arnold Palmer designed TPC Piper Glen with a unique combination of beauty, challenge and pure playability. Situated in the historic city of Charlotte, the stunning layout brings out the best of the rolling North Carolina terrain – with natural rock outcroppings, lush oak trees and quiet lake inlets.
