FlyingTee had the honor of hosting and working alongside the Southern Hills Country Club team in a successful fundraising tournament on behalf of First Tee of Tulsa, Wednesday, April 5, 2017.
Nick Sidorakis, General Manager of Southern Hills Country Club had this to say after the event. “(FlyingTee) you and your team were awesome, the welcoming attitude of your staff, service, the whole experience was beyond my expectations! We received a lot of good feedback and that we should do it again next year. Thank you for working with us throughout the event, we appreciate your support (of the First Tee of Tulsa program).
First Tee of Tulsa chapter was established in 1999 to benefit the youth of Tulsa and bring awareness to the game. First Tee is a nationwide program whose mission is “To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.”
FlyingTee CEO, John Vollbrecht volunteered with the First Tee program in Dallas approximately 13 years ago because he “believe(s) golf is unique in how it is able to teach life skills and values that extend well beyond the golf course, whether you are good or bad at the game. Golf teaches everyone who plays the importance of honesty and integrity in unique ways – what other sport forces you to call your own penalties?”
At FlyingTee, “we have a unique opportunity to employ hundreds of Tulsans and make a significant impact on the local community. As a company created in Oklahoma by Oklahomans it is crucial to us to do everything in our power to give back and work with our local community. Since we opened we have hosted many First Tee students at FlyingTee and were honored to host an event that raises money for this amazing organization.”
At FlyingTee, we look forward to teaming up with First Tee Tulsa and other local charities to help raise funds through interactive golf tournaments in a fun and unique way.
