MENTOR DAY

Categories: News

The First Tee of Broward held our Annual Mentors Day partnering once again with LOVE OUR NATION.

This event was created three years ago by students from the Pine Crest school golf team as a way to introduce groups of deserving young people to the game of golf.
For the third year, the event was directed by Pine Crest Junior, and Varsity Golfer, Dylan Glatt. Dylan was assisted by two other PC Varsity Golf Mentors Senior Dominic Carrera and Junior Rafael Salazar.

The Mentors taught Practice Range safety, demonstrated the full swing, chipping, and putting, and then the students had the opportunity to hit all of these shots. The children ended the day with a putting contest. This year’s putting Champion is Nariah Cunningham.
The program concluded with a luncheon for the participants sponsored by Galuppi’s on the Green Restaurant.

Following lunch, each child was presented with a goody bag filled with golf-related prizes sponsored by: PGA Superstore, Jack Nicklaus, Edwin Watts, The Pompano Municipal Golf Course, Habit Burger Grill, and the Glatt Family.
