It's all fore the kids!


Let’s talk about one of our alumni’s: Antonio DelCastillo! Antonio was not only a participant for five years, but also a Lead Instructor. Through the program, he fell in love with the game of golf and saw the value of the sport. First Tee not only taught him how to play golf, but how to connect with people through golf.

He was also the recipient for the $20,000 scholarship presented by First Tee & PGA Tour Superstore. He is currently a freshman at the University of Alabama on the pre-Med track and majoring in anthropology.

First Tee - Orange County is excited to hear about all the accomplishments you’re achieving in college and cannot wait to have you back over the summer as a Lead Coach! Keep up all the great work Antonio!


Volunteer Spotlight: Coach Bob! Many of you know him, but if you don’t, he has been a volunteer with us for the past 9 years. Coach Bob does almost everything: coach classes, help with special events, and fills in whenever we need extra help.

We asked Coach Bob, what do you think of when someone says First Tee?
➡️“Caring comes to my mind when someone says First Tee. Our volunteers, coaches, and directors all have a sense of caring when it comes to the participants of First Tee - Orange County.”

Thank you Coach Bob for continuing to give back and all your hard work. We appreciate everything!

A fun night at Girl’s Golf building personalized tags for their golf bags. Everyone was positive, respectful, and extremely creative while designing their own tag. Each girl showcased their beautiful work and explained the idea behind their build. Nice job girls!


Q: What is “Player(s) of the day?
A: At the end of every First Tee class, the coaches all get together for a few minutes to discuss which participant(s) in class deserve to be named the "player of the day". The player of the day is the 1-3 participants that best exemplified the core lesson of the day during class, ex. showed respect, was a good sport, dealt well with challenges, etc. The player of the day is not necessarily who hit the most amazing golf shots of the day, but who best showed the character value discussed by the coaches. Players of the day are recognized at the end of class with a round of applause 👏🏽, a star ⭐️ on their name tag, an extra snack 🥨, and even a golf ball or other fun prize 🎉!


SAVE THE DATE for this spooktacular open to the public event! More details to come. 🎃⛳️
