TEE off at MountainView “The First Tee”


Eileen J Snearly

The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. The First Tee is supported by the PGA Tour and The Champions Tour. It also has a major presence at the Tucson Open on the Senior Tour.

This First Tee event will be held October 28, 2018 at MountainView Golf Course in SaddleBrooke and is sponsored by the Men’s 18-hole league. There are some 18- and 9-hole ladies also participating.

For the past seven years about 20-30 children have participated. The young golfers are then assigned to four golf carts with four seasoned golfers as drivers, then the young golfers play as many holes as time allows.

After two hours of play all, including parents and sponsors, go to the Mesquite Grill for pizza and coke. It is at this luncheon that a check is presented to The First Tee organization by the Men’s 18-hole league.
