Our annual Tee Up 4 Kids Golf Tournament took place Sept. 25, and we had terrific support from sponsors and everyone who turned out to play.  Special thanks go out to this year’s key sponsors:

Grand Sponsor:  Terrace Heights Development

Lunch Sponsors:  Banner Bank and Russell Landscaping

Golf Cart and Hat Sponsor:  Tri Ply Construction


Social distancing restrictions, because of COVID-19, meant out tournament was a little different this year.  We were limited to just 18 teams, while in the past we would have had more than 30.  The traditional shotgun start also had to be changed to scheduled tee times for each team, and we couldn’t have a standard awards ceremony afterwards.  Despite these changes, the teams had a great time playing at the Elks Golf and Country Club, even in the windy conditions.


First Tee would like to congratulate our tournament winners:

1st:          ABA Medical

2nd:         Cashmere Valley Bank

3rd:          Team Springer
