First Tee Items to be Collected at the Bennett Pinehurst
Support area junior girls and The First Tee of Greater Washington DC – bring your clean, gently-used golf clothing, shoes and equipment to the Bennett Pinehurst on June 18!
The First Tee of Greater Washington DC serves the majority of our WDCGA area in Washington, Northern Virginia and Maryland suburbs. It is a developmental youth program for ages 7-18, using golf programming and nine core values for enhancing life skills, and it includes a growing Girls Golf program that has the joint support of the LPGA and USGA.
To support our area junior girls, WDCGA is promoting donations to The First Tee’s “Summer Give-Away” which is a pro shop style free shopping spree in early July. The Bennett Pinehurst Tournament is perfect timing for providing an opportunity to bring your clean, new or gently-used golf clothing, shoes and equipment to include in their Summer Give-Away. Donations are tax deductible and forms will be available at drop-off.
If you are not able to participate in the Bennett Pinehurst but want to donate for The First Tee’s July Give-Away, please consider contacting The First Tee of Greater Washington DC – either individually, or have your club’s District members or women’s golf association do the same (TFT staff can arrange to pick up group donations at your club).
Congratulations to Sung Kim of Montgomery CC, winner of the Houlahan Cup.
Congratulations to Mary Cabriele, winner of the Keefer Cup! She won by an impressive 8 strokes.
Congratulations to Jenny Kitchen, WDCGA Treasurer, on her win at the Nancy Davies Memorial Ice Breaker. See the results page for more details.
New Tee Markers
Starting this Spring, we have new tee markers. You will see them at our non-Cup events. Thanks to the building team of Steve Lillie, Carol Davies-Lillie, Maggie Whall, Aubrey Herndon and Diane Herndon. Old tee markers will be available at our upcoming meetings in March. They make a nice decoration for your flower pot or flower beds.
