First Annual First Tee Golf Challenge
This is the image for the news article titled First Annual First Tee Golf ChallengeThe 1st Annual First Tee Golf Challenge at Table Mountain was a hit!

The following 8 schools brought a team of 4 students to participate in this event:

  • Concow (1st place Runner Up)
  • Ishi Hills
  • Manzanita (Tournament Champion)
  • Nelson
  • Plumas
  • Stanford
  • Golden Hills

This golf challenge was sponsored by Whisper Ridge Golf Resort & Spa in partnership with Table Mountain Golf Course and Butte County Office of Education.  The objective was to bring after school students who have been participating in the First Tee DRIVE program out to a golf course to receive hands on instruction in the golf skills of putting, chipping and driving.  Students used clubs that were donated to our program and worked under the direction of one of the 10 PGA Golf Pros brought in from around the North State and competed in a mini-tournament following the clinic.  They enjoyed a meal and recognition awards at the end of the day.

Attached are some highlights from the day.  Thank you to everyone who supported this unique opportunity for Butte County students.   View photo album.
