The FTSV 11th Annual OPEN full-shotgun tournament on June 9th was a huge success. The weather couldn’t have been better at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club for the 160 golfers including 16 sponsors that came together for a great cause, raising a total of $145,000. Proceeds benefit First Tee – Silicon Valley financial aid program. Our unique approach to youth development transforms lives and gives kids and teens a brighter future. We teach life skills and golf skills on-course, in-school, and after-school. Our programs are accessible to youth of different backgrounds and perspectives and affordable to families experiencing financial hardship.
