The First Tee of Silicon Valley brought 36 class participants from Rancho Del Pueblo on a field trip to the final round of the 2019 Pure Insurance Championship Impacting The First Tee at Pebble Beach Golf Course.
While at Pebble Beach, the students watched the best senior professional golfers in the world play together with some of the top TFT players in the country. The purpose of our field trip is to inspire our participants and expose them to opportunities available to them as they progress through our program. The First Tee of Silicon Valley also coordinates field trips to foster and strengthen mentoring with our participants in a different setting. Lastly, it allows our under-served participants with 98% diversity the opportunity to see the ocean and a beautiful part of the Monterey coast that many have not experienced.
TFTSV sends a special thank you to the Monterey Peninsula Foundation for providing the grant which allowed us to cover transportation to and from Pebble Beach.
“We are grateful for the Monterey Peninsula Foundation which allows us provide our participants an opportunity to visit a world-famous golf course and learn from some of the best golfers in the world”, said Chris Moreno-Hunt, Program Manager.
