Big D Memorial Tournament Benefits The First Tee of Silicon Valley

On Friday July 24, 2015 DeLaveaga Golf Course in Santa Cruz hosted their First Annual Big D Memorial Golf Tournament. There were 80 golfers who attended to remember Dennis “Big D” Kettmann, and another 40 individuals came for dinner. The day was a special one for The First Tee of Silicon Valley because the proceeds of the tournament provide a scholarship, The Big D Memorial Scholarship, Clare, one of our outstanding Ace participants. A foursome from The First Tee of Silicon Valley was invited to participate in the scramble tournament as well. Dennis’s son and organizer of Memorial Tournament, Matt Kettmann, learned the game from Dennis and knows that “he must be smiling wherever he is knowing that his memory is now helping other young people with First Tee of Silicon Valley fall in love with golf too.”
