Summer 9-Hole Golf Scramble

Mark your calendars!  The Summer 9-hole Scramble Tournament is just around the corner. This event is open to all students of the 2016 summer session, and best of all, it is free! This is a chance for your student to showcase what they have learned as well as meet other students so you don't want to miss it.

A golf scramble is a format for golf tournaments where two or more players form a team to play, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot.

DATE:  Sunday, September 18th

TIME:  4:30 pm Shotgun start

WHERE:  The Creek at Qualchan Golf Course

WHO:  All participants of The First Tee registered for and participating in summer 2016 classes - PLAYer, PAR, Birdie, Eagle, Ace

COST:  Free to all summer 2016 participants of The First Tee!


PARENTS:  We need hole chaperones!  If you are available to chaperone a hole during the Summer Scramble please email karil@thefirstteeinlandnw.org
