2023 Annual Adult-Junior Tournament

On May 13th, First Tee of Silicon Valley hosted our annual Adult-Junior tournament at Gavilan College Golf Course.  Thirty-three (33) of our participants teamed up with their parents, a First Tee coach, or a First Tee board member.   Each team was challenged to play in an alternate shot format where players were able to experience golf shots from a different perspective.  The Adult-Junior format is a great opportunity for parents to see their child’s progress, not only from a golf point of view, but as individuals who are dealing with challenges, communicating with others, and displaying a growth mindset. 

“I was so fortunate to be paired with Nicolas from the high school group.  He was super respectful, a good sport when I left him in a tricky spot, and smiled the entire round.” – Coach Teri.

The tournament concluded with a pizza party, awards, and a raffle.  It was great seeing families meeting one another and FTSV participants making new friends.  Congratulations to all of our participants for competing with respect, integrity, and sportsmanship.  Special thanks to our coaches who filled in for a participant in need as well as Coach Alex for taking photos!
