Celebrating 10 Years of Impact!


November 1st, marked 10 years of programming for The First Tee of Monterey County! We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you very much. We plan a week long social media time capsule so that you can reminisce about where we came from, how we got here and where we might go in supporting the youth of Monterey County. Enjoy the photos and we look forward to your comments. Join us each day as we walk down memory lane……53 to 6,000…it’s been an amazing journey.”

Pedro at the National Trustees Dinner

The First Tee hosted the National Trustees to an event at Pebble last week. Honorary Chair, George W. Bush, was present along with Tim Finchem. Our participant, Pedro Ortiz, was selected to represent our chapter and be interviewed by Bobby Clampett. Pedro has been with us since 4th grade and is now a senior at Salinas High School. He is very active at our chapter as a participant and an assistant coach. Additionally, he is interning at Poppy Hills Golf Course at Pebble Beach and hopes to attend UCLA to study engineering. We are very proud for everything that Pedro has accomplished and have high hopes for his future. To read more, go on http://blog.thefirsttee.org/2014/10/16/i-ready-risk-everything-pedro-ortiz/
