Last Saturday, February 3, the First Tee of Greater Pasadena welcomed injured veterans to the Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena to teach about the benefits of golf. 36 men and women representing the Wounded Warrior Project participated in a morning including camaraderie, brunch and golf clinics.

During the golf clinics The First Tee of Greater Pasadena coaches, volunteers, and youth demonstrated how The First Tee programming has a positive impact on today’s youth. This event introduced the veterans to the youth programs offered by The First Tee of Greater Pasadena and volunteer opportunities available.

Wounded Warrior Project Outreach events like this support the long-term recovery needs of warriors by reintroducing them and their families to the unique bonds experienced during military service. Connecting with fellow service members in the community minimizes isolation and creates a support structure during the healing process.

The First Tee of Greater Pasadena is a Chapter of The First Tee® and operates from the Brookside Golf Club, a 36-hole municipal golf facility located adjacent to the world-famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Additional facilities are located at the Alhambra Golf Course, Altadena Golf Course, Arroyo Seco Golf Course, Eaton Canyon Golf Course and Glen Oaks Golf and Learning Center, San Dimas Golf Course, Arcadia Par 3, Scholl Canyon Golf Course and Marshall Canyon Golf Course. The chapter holds golf programs directed towards youth ages 5 to 17 and aims at impacting young peoples’ lives by employing the game of golf while providing educational programs on: 1) character building, 2) instilling life-enhancing values, and 3) promoting healthy choices.
