In November of 2004, The First Tee of Monterey County took over the management of the Twin Creeks Golf Course in Salinas, CA and began conducting golf and Life Skills programs for youth ages 4-17. The First Tee of Monterey County is a 63-acre, 9-hole course, featuring a grass driving range, practice putting and chipping greens, and the John Zoller Clubhouse partnering with the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network. The First Tee of Monterey County members participate in weekly golf and Life Skills classes taught by recognized The First Tee Coaches and PGA Apprentices; receive $1 greens fees and large buckets of balls, free use of golf equipment and computers, friendly and competitive tournaments, scholarship opportunities, and national leadership and career exploration academies. Outreach efforts have been made to make our programs available to minorities, low-income youth, student with disabilities, at-risk youth, and girls who were previously denied access to the game and its positive values. Although The First Tee of Monterey County is open to the public, the priority remains on serving the youth!
