Participant and Volunteer Spotlights

Alonzo Jr. and Alonzo Sr.

We spoke with this father and son duo about what First Tee – Lake Erie means to them!

Alonzo Jr. got started with golf to spend more time with his dad and has enjoyed “meeting new people” and “having new friends” through the First Tee spring and summer programs.

Alonzo Sr. spoke to the relaxed, accessible, and inclusive nature of the game of golf. He volunteers with us to spend more time with his son doing “something they both love” and because he feels that First Tee “teaches a lot of life lessons out on the course.” He loves seeing “the excitement in the kids when they hit a good shot” and watching them “cheer each other on” no matter their teams.
