LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The First Tee of Central Arkansas will host the 5th Annual The First Tee Classic charity golf tournament on Monday, October 22.
The tournament will be held at the Jack Stephens Youth Golf Academy, home of The First Tee of Central Arkansas.
The Classic is a charity golf tournament benefiting the children of the First Tee of Central Arkansas. The goal of this four man scramble is to help raise awareness of the top notch facilities and programs offered at The First Tee of Central Arkansas as well as generate funds to help cover the cost of providing programs to the children of Central Arkansas.
The Classic has been expanded to include morning and afternoon flights. The morning flight will have an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start; the second flight will start at 1:30 p.m.
A light breakfast, lunch and an evening reception will be provided to all teams. Teams will play on The First Tee's two nine-hole courses; the Chairman's, which is a regulation-length course and the Honors, which is a par-3 course.
The First Tee will station one young member (Ambassador) on the tee of each hole of the Honors course. The Ambassador will play their assigned hole with each team as their "fifth man".
This will give teams an opportunity to meet and play with nine young people who exhibit The First Tee's core values of integrity, honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, respect, perseverance, confidence, courtesy and judgment.
Interested teams, sponsors, auctiondonors and volunteers are encouraged to call The First Tee's Executive Director, Cory Biggs, at (501) 562-4653.
