FOUR PHOENIX-AREA GOLF CLUBS CREATE "TEE IT UP AT 10 FOR THE FIRST TEE" OF PHOENIX
ASU Karsten Golf Course, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, Longbow Golf Club and Raven Golf Club-Phoenix
Four Phoenix area OB Sports-managed golf clubs announced the launch of a new program to benefit The First Tee of Phoenix 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) is setting aside one tee time Monday – Friday, June 11 – August 31 in the 10 o’clock hour available to the public for $100. The entire $100 is then donated to the local Valley chapter: The First Tee of Phoenix.
"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 [management firm for participating clubs], we now have four clubs participating at a local level."
The tee times are valid for up to four players at $100 for the entire group and must be prepaid. Additionally, each of the participating facilities 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. 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.
To book this special tee time, call the clubs directly: ASU Karsten (480) 921-8070, Eagle Mountain (480) 816-1234, Longbow 480.807.5400 and Raven (602) 243-3636.
