On Saturday, August 19th, First Tee – Silicon Valley (FTSV) held our Fall Pre-Season Girls Golf Play Day at Rancho del Pueblo Golf Course. The theme of the event was Summer Playday.
19 ofFTSV’s youth participants had a Summer-time blast playing golf, enjoying games and socializing with new friends. This event provided an opportunity for the girls to develop their respect for themselves and others, 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 in summer themed golf games. They played seashell scramble, coconut bowling, and hula hoop hop. They gained new friends, shared their summer memories, and bonded over common interests.
“This group had so much energy and were very conversational” – Coach Li An.
The event concluded with brunch, building a coral reef, and a game of giant Jenga. 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. Special thanks to Coach Gracie, Karen, Roni, Li An, and Natalie for hosting our event.
We are always thrilled to have our Girls Golf event, and want to say thank you to all the participants for making it such a success. Everyone made sure to create an inclusive, supportive and respectful atmosphere where all felt comfortable to learn and try new things.
