Arizona Golf Courses Summer “Tee It Up at 10” is a Winner

From the Arizona Golf Authority Golf News Desk

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – This summer, thanks to four Valley golf courses, you can scratch your golf itch and support the First Tee of Phoenix at the same time. ASU Karsten, Eagle Mountain, Longbow and the Raven-Phoenix golf clubs are all participating in an attractive program called “Tee It Up at 10 for the First Tee.”

"Tee It Up at 10" Supports the First Tee

Here’s the good news: Each course will reserve one tee time each day, Monday through Friday, between 10 and 11 a.m. on their tee sheet for the Tee it Up at 10 foursome. The reservation will be sold for $100 to the first player to telephone the golf course and request the reserved Tee it Up at 10 tee time.

Here’s the great news: The entire $100 is donated directly to the First Tee of Phoenix!

The Tee it Up at 10 program tee times during the 10 o’clock hour will be available from June 11 through August 31, 2012 at all four golf courses. Telephone the golf courses directly to purchase the reserved tee time. Each course’s advance booking policies determine how far in advance the Tee it Up at 10 reservation may be purchased.

“We noticed that nationally, The First Tee posted a goal of raising 100 Million dollars,” said Daryl Crawford, Director of Golf for ASU Karsten Golf Course.  “We thought it was a great idea and through the common thread of OB Sports [the management firm for all four clubs], we now have four golf clubs participating at a local level to help them reach their national goal.”

The First Tee of Phoenix

In addition to donating the tee time fees, each golf course is also collecting donations of used and gently used equipment, e.g. clubs, shoes, balls, pull carts, umbrellas, clothes, for The First Tee of Phoenix. It’s a great incentive to clean out your garage and provide kids around the Valley with the tools they need to take up the game.

“Junior golf has always been one of our top priorities at Longbow and for the OB Sports team in general,” said Jay Larscheid, General Manager of Longbow Golf Club.  “Plus, the program allows us to direct the proceeds back into junior golf efforts here in Arizona. In the end, this is a strong incentive to gets more Valley kids playing the game of golf.”

The First Tee of Phoenix teaches youngsters the game of golf by focusing on important core values such as responsibility, respect, integrity and confidence, all of which are keys to success not only on the golf course, but in life.
