First Tee – Silicon Valley (FTSV) hosted our Fall Pre-Season Girls Golf Play Day on Saturday, August 20th, 2022 at Rancho del Pueblo Golf Course. The theme of the event was Woodland Wonderland.
Seventeen of FTSV’s youth participants had a wonder-fall time playing golf and socializing with new friends. This event provided an opportunity for the girls to develop their confidence, find their own voice, identify their talents, and inspire them to live active and healthy lifestyles.
On the course, the girls engaged with each other and worked as a team, following a 2-person alternate shot format. They gained new friends, shared stories about their favorite memories in the past year, and discussed their future aspirations. One of our participants shared that she imagines herself becoming an LPGA instructor! A few other participants also discussed becoming coaches and will register this winter to be FTSV volunteer coaches. It is inspiring to hear the girls share how they want to help out their community and have the confidence to give back.
The event concluded with a team crafting activity, where they customized their own picture frame. We hope this experience of building new friends and playing golf together was memorable for our girls, and that they take the lessons learned to help them as they grow into amazing women in our society.
We believe in our Girls Golf participants, and we want to continue providing them with a supportive go-to team and opportunities to build skills that are necessary in reaching their dreams and goals.
