The First Tee of Greater Sacramento evolved from the success of the Sacramento Area Youth Golf Association (SAY Golf), and The First Tee’s programs have led the way with character education classes, youth golf clinics, programs for the disabled, and a competitive golf tour that has developed players for high school, college and professional golf programs.
Bodycraft Collision Centers hosted a sponsor reception featuring golf legend and honorary chairperson Tony Jacklin, which preceded the event on Sunday, September 9, 2012, at Mercedes Benz of El Dorado Hills. A post-tournament reception included speakers from TFTGS, including Louie Euer, who recently participated in the PGA sponsored Ryder Cup Outreach Program.

Partnering with an organization whose core values include honesty, integrity, respect and responsibility is directly aligned with the vision of Bodycraft Collision Centers. This makes our partnership with First Tee of Greater Sacramento a natural fit and we are thrilled to have been able to continue this commitment over the past eight years.”
