Meet & Greet with Alex Abrams

This month, we're talking to ACE-level participant and Howard High junior Alex Abrams. Read on to learn more about this young star, and look forward to next month's issue, where we'll share an interview with Alex's mother, Deneen Abrams.

Q: How long have you been a participant with The First Tee of Howard County, and what made you first get involved?
A: I began with The First Tee six years ago. My mom encouraged me to experience different sports, and discovered that The First Tee was a way for kids to become involved with the game of golf.


LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program (FREE)

Parents of girls ages 7-17, registration for the  LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program is open and is FREE this year! 

Coach Karin has made it her goal to register at least 100 girls. This is an amazing opportunity to be part of a community of 60,000+ girls across the globe receiving quality golf instruction from LPGA and PGA teaching professionals or certified coaches from The First Tee. Girls Golf members learn more than just the game of golf, though - the program helps empower them with confidence and teach them valuable life skills, from leadership to healthy living. 

Classes begin April 22, and the schedule of 2017 Girls Golf events is now available on our website. Please use the below link to register, and feel free to contact Coach Karin at  karin.vanslyke@columbiaassociation.org with questions.
