First Tee Invitational

First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge’s 12th annual “The First Tee Invitational” took place Monday, November 2, 2020.

On November 2, 2020, we hosted “Two Tournaments on Two Great Courses” at Farmington and The Club at Glenmore in support of the programs of First Tee – Virginia Blue Ridge. Golfers played one of Virginia’s finest clubs while supporting First Tee’s important working serving youth in the Central Virginia community. This year, the prize was bigger than ever! The winning foursome at each course received tickets to the Monday session of the 2021 Masters.

First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge provides programs to area children that promote life skills, character development, and life-enhancing values by teaching the Nine Core Values of The First Tee: Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, Responsibility, Perseverance, Courtesy, and Judgment.

One hundred percent of raised funds stay local and support The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge as it provides programs that open up a whole new world of opportunities for our area youth. Proceeds from the event ensure that The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge can provide:

  • Funding for The First Tee National School Program, which currently places the Nine Core Values in front of more than 9,025 elementary school students in the area.
  • Support of First Tee programming in partnership with other youth-serving organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia, International Neighbors and STARS.
  • Financial assistance for kids whose families cannot afford the full participant fees
  • Golf equipment for the participants
  • Training and educational materials for participants
  • Expanded training for coaches
  • Expense coverage for kids who qualify for regional and national events

These are just a small sample of the many positive contributions this tournament provides for our local chapter.
