Monterey County’s first tee receives USGA grant

The USGA awarded 25 Chapter Grants to the First Tee with the goal of overcoming the barriers faced by underserved youth and their introduction and participation in golf.

Monterey County First Tee received a grant from the United States Golf Association to advance the game in underserved Central Coast communities. The USGA has presented the IDEA grant to 25 different First Tee chapters across the country. The grants total up to $25,000 with the goal of expanding and diversifying the game of golf. With the help of this grant, Monterey County First Tee hopes to pursue new projects, including the development of a second campus in King City that would support between 3,000 and 5,000 youth, a partnership with Valley Health and Covered California to bring education and opportunity for those without health care, and new golf and life skills lessons for the Special Kids Connect organization.
