On February 23rd, The First Tee of Silicon Valley hosted the 2019 Go Green Tag Team Tournament at Gavilan College Golf Course. The event commenced with a group discussion led by Coach Manny on the importance of aeration as well as why golf courses enforce frost delays during the winter season.
During the tournament, the participants were encouraged to repair golf ball damage on the greens and to use sand and seed that were stationed on every par 3. On specific holes, they were able to use a soil test kit to test the moisture, pH level, and sunlight of the turf.
Twenty-two participants played in an alternate shot format. Congratulations to all our participants for competing with honesty, integrity, and perseverance!
Our seasonal tournaments are valuable events to help participants bond and create friendships in a pressure-free environment. We hope these tournaments help them feel more confident engaging in conversation with others! They are also a great stepping stone for participants to learn how to deal with adversity, set expectations, and experience teamwork.
Our next seasonal tournament is the Chapter Championship on Saturday, May 18th.
