First Tee – Florida Gold Coast, the parent organization of First Tee – Palm Beaches, Broward and the Treasure Coast, held its Inaugural Celebrity Pro-Am at the Breakers Ocean Course in December. The event began with lunch at the Flagler Steakhouse with the players, our Chairman Steve Rockoff, Vice Chairman Ken Kennerly and Executive Director of the David Burke Foundation, Ryan Burke.
The winning team shot a 13-under par score of 57 in a format of one best-ball net of the foursome. The winning team consisted of the Breakers Ocean course architect- Rees Jones, Peter Helie, Phil Restino and chapter students Felipe Obando and Billy Reid.
“We had an incredible day at the Breakers,” said Steve Rockoff, Chapter Chairman. “Everyone had a great day, and it was a lot of fun to have Rees tell the group about the course re-design. It is such a fun course to play.”
The proceeds of this inaugural event will benefit our 2021 college scholarship fund and veterans’ programs.
