10th Annual Taste for The First Tee at Turf Valley Resort
Meet & Greet with Michael Bosica

This month, we're talking to board member and chair of one of our organization's signature events, The Taste for The First Tee, Michael Bosica. Read on to learn more about the Cushman & Wakefield vice president's commitment to The First Tee of Howard County.

Q: When did you first get involved with The First Tee, and what made you decide to take your commitment to the next level by chairing the committee that organizes such a huge undertaking -- The Taste for The First Tee? 
A: I'd heard good things about The First Tee, and have been involved since 2009. This is my fourth year chairing the Taste committee; while I've found being a board member to be rewarding, taking the reins on a key fundraising event pushes your commitment and emphasizes you doing something beyond putting The First Tee on your resume.

Free Registration for LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program

Parents of girls ages 7-17, we have great news from Coach Karin Vanslyke. This year, registration for the  LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program is FREE! 

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.
