First Tee Testimonials
Here at The First Tee of St. Petersburg we have some great people both young and "older" helping out with the program. These individuals serve as mentors to our youth and are helping to mold them into the fine future leaders of our community. Without their help, The First Tee of St. Petersburg would be just another junior golf program.
Click on the links below to read the testimonials of just a couple of our mentors.
Chris Metcalfe is a young man who recently graduated from Eckard College and even though he has started his career after college, he still enjoys his time helping out the kids. CLICK HERE to read his testimonial which was also one of his college papers.
Devon Rogers is a young man who is a junior in Lakewood High's CAT program. Devon has been volunteering with us for several years now and has grown into the role of Youth Mentor. Through his time with us Devon has gone from a young man who didn't know much about golf to one of the most knowledgable mentors in our program. He recently had the opportunity to attend the Life Skills and Leadership Academy in Phoenix Arizona. CLICK HERE to learn about his experience there and his experience with The First Tee.
