Yesterday was just another day in paradise, this time playing with The First Tee of Greater Chicago! One day remains here in sunny Florida! So grateful to The First Tee of Naples/Collier, Octagon, the @Chubb Classic and our generous hosts, the Bakers, for a fantastic week!
A quote from participant Robert Butler on our trip to Naples, FL - "We're here for a good time, not for a long time." We had a great day playing with The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia at Quail Creek Country Club, The Chubb Classic, The PGA TOUR Superstore, and Lowdermilk Park before wrapping up the evening with a burger at Brooks Burgers!
It’s not every day that our students get a free putting lesson from a Masters Tournament Champion! The 1987 Masters winner and 4-time PGA TOUR Winner Larry Mize volunteered his time at the Chubb Classic and gave some great putting tips – so Robert and Lindsay captured the moment with a #serviceselfie18!
Lindsay, a junior at West Catholic High School and a member of our varsity golf team, is getting away from the winter cold and bringing her golf clubs to compet...e in 'The Golf to Paradise – First Tee Champions Challenge' in Naples, Florida! She is being sent by the local non-profit The First Tee of West Michigan. Lindsay is one of just 24 students from across the country selected for this event!
The First Tee teaches students values and life skills through the game of golf and has had Lindsay as a participant since 2013.
