Last week we heard from Teal Guion, executive director of The First Tee of the Coachella Valley. The local chapter serves 7,000 young golfers annually and offers programs at The Golf Center on Cook Street as well as Indio’s municipal course and four other valley country clubs. The First Tee provides both golf and life lessons to youngsters aged four to 18 and this year marks the 25th anniversary of the national program. Teal was born and raised in Palm Springs and played golf on the boys’ team when she attended Palm Springs High School. She has been teaching golf for the past 15 years. Also last week, we collected Happy Dollars and the money raised will go to help fund prize money for a new essay contest our club is planning. We’ll have more information once our plans are finalized.
