93rd Ernie Pieper Santa Clara County Championship at San Jose Country Club

Categories: 2019, Current Newsletter, June, Newsletter

The First Tee of Silicon Valley was pleased to continue our 10+ year partnership with San Jose Country Club and be the beneficiary of the 93rd Ernie Pieper Santa Clara County Championship held on June 1st and 2nd at San Jose Country Club. The donation is designated for a Student Athlete Award to help a highly competitive TFTSV Junior golfer pay for competitions as a means to ultimately play collegiate-golf.

The TFTSV is pleased to announce that Borina Sutikto will be the recipient of this year’s $1,000 Student Athlete Award. She is in the 10th grade at Connecting Waters Charter School with a 4.0 GPA and +2.0 USGA Golf Handicap Index. Borinia started with TFTSV at age 8 in January 2012 and is currently in the ACE level program and volunteering as a Junior Coach. When asked if attending college and playing collegiate golf is something she would like to do, Borina shared how learning about The First Tee Core Value: Perseverance has impacted her growth and goal setting. She said, “Attending college and playing collegiate golf has been my dream since I started my golf lessons with The First Tee of Silicon Valley.”

Please join us in congratulating the 93rd Ernie Pieper Santa Clara County Championship champions!
