The First Tee of Silicon Valley hosted our 2020 Tag Team Tournament at Gavilan College Golf Course on February 29th. The event commenced with a group discussion led by Coach Manny on identifying diseased or dead trees and when to avoid them.
During their round, the participants were encouraged repair divots, identify staked trees, and to pick up any debris roaming the golf course. On hole one, the participants were able to use a soil test kit to determine the moisture and pH level on the teeing ground.
Twenty-six participants competed in a nine-hole alternate shot format. Congratulations to all our participants for competing with honesty, integrity, and perseverance. A special thanks to our volunteers who helped keep the pace of play and assisted the participants in determining the golf rules.
Our seasonal tournaments are valuable events to help participants bond and create friendships in a pressure-free environment. We hope these tournaments help them feel more confident engaging in conversation with others! They are also a great stepping stone for participants to learn how to deal with adversity, set expectations, and experience teamwork.
Our next event is the Chapter Championship on May 30th. Contact Manny at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
