This month, we're catching up with Karlie Zamora, an Ace-level player with The First Tee of Howard County who has been part of our program for the last six years, along with her two sisters, Kassie and Kara.

Q: What made you interested in joining The First Tee of Howard County?
A: I started taking golf lessons when I was 6 and then learned about First Tee from a new friend when I was 8.

Q: Did playing with The First Tee motivate you to get involved with your school's golf team? 
A: First Tee has been fun. I have made friends there who like golf. I wanted to play golf since my 6 th birthday. First Tee helped me to be ready to play golf in high school. This year as a 9 th grader at North County High School I was on the golf team.  I finished 3 rd for the girls county championships.
