Four Valley golf clubs recently donated $5,000 to The First Tee of Phoenix as part of a special program called Tee It Up at 10 For The First Tee. Each of the participating clubs (ASU Karsten Golf Course, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, Longbow Golf Club and Raven Golf Club Phoenix) set aside one tee time Monday through Friday, June 11 to Aug. 31 in the 10 o’clock hour available to the public for $100. The entire $100 was then donated to The First Tee of Phoenix.

“We are happy to pitch in to raise well deserved funds for The First Tee of Phoenix,” said Daryl Crawford, director of golf for ASU Karsten Golf Course. “Through the years, The Thunderbirds and Hugh Smith have made a positive impact on thousands of kids through the game of golf. We’re proud to support their efforts.”

The First Tee of Phoenix teaches youngsters the game of golf by focusing important core values such as responsibility, respect, integrity and confidence, all of which are key to success on and off the golf course.

“We truly appreciate the positive boost that our local chapter received from these clubs,” said Hugh Smith, executive director of The First Tee of Phoenix. “Their generosity ensures a host of youngsters will pick up the game as well as the many valuable life lessons that go hand-in-hand.”
