California Assemblymember Robert Rivas Tours First Tee – Monterey County

First Tee – Monterey County and First Tee – Silicon Valley were delighted to co-host a tour of FTMC’s program home in Salinas for Assemblymember Robert Rivas on Wednesday, July 20th.

ASM Rivas has represented California’s 30th Assembly District since 2018. FTSV’s program location in Gilroy and FTMC’s Salinas location both fall within the district, which includes all San Benito County, a majority of Monterey County, a portion of Santa Cruz county, and Santa Clara’s south county.

The tour afforded ASM Rivas an opportunity to build on his existing knowledge of First Tee, FTMC and FTSV with a first-hand, detailed look at the FTMC-operated Twin Creeks Golf Course. The course, which is owned by Monterey County and leased to the City of Salinas, has been the program home of FTMC since 2004.

FTMC operates Twin Creeks Golf Course to maximize its annual and ongoing benefit to over 10,000 kids and residents of the surrounding community. It is a shining example of how First Tee builds the character of all youth regardless of background in partnership with their local community, businesses and government.

“It was a pleasure to host Assemblymember Rivas at our campus today,” said Geoff Couch, Chairman of First Tee Monterey County. “I think he really enjoyed the visit and seeing so many local youth from all backgrounds having fun and learning some great life skills.”

“FTMC is teeing up our next generation to have the skills necessary to be successful,” said Assemblymember Robert Rivas. “It was wonderful to visit FTMC and see the amazing work they are doing for our youth!”
