Our 3rd Annual Challenge Cup returns on Friday, December 3rd with 6 Country Clubs participating*. It is an inclusive and friendly challenge between golf clubs benefiting the First Tee – Silicon Valley to help us grow the game of golf while building game changers in our community. It is an opportunity for golf clubs to demonstrate their philanthropic spirit of giving back to a non-profit closely associated with their favorite past time.
The head-to-head challenge matchups competing for the Challenge Cup are:
- La Rinconada Vs Almaden
- Silver Creek Vs San Jose
- Sharon Heights Vs Menlo
These same clubs raised $56,600 last year while La Rinconada was crowned the cup winner!
(See results below.)
All teams are encouraged to include men, women, seniors and teens in their team tally. Each participant makes a donation to benefit the FTSV to register. The format is a Point Par Scoring with 100% of Handicap — Net Par 1point, Net Birdie 2 points, Net Eagle 3 points, and Net Albatross 4 points. Other members can make donations to support their club team.
The Aggregate of Top 24 scores from each Club determines their team score. The Team scores will be compared to rival Club to determine each match up Club winner. All money raised by both teams will be donated to FTSV in the name of the winning club plus bragging rights! The team with highest overall score among ALL Clubs is declared winner of the 3rd Annual Challenge Cup Perpetual Trophy!
The donations from the Challenge Cup will allow us to create a sense of belonging for all kids – no matter what walk of life. It will help us build the strength of character that empowers kids through a lifetime of new challenges by seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills.
