Thirty-six juniors traveled to Gearhart, Oregon to compete to compete in the first annual Oregon versus Washington Gearhart Cup; an 18-hole tournament held at Gearhart Golf Links! Team Oregon consisted of youth from The First Tee of Greater Portland from the Portland metro and Eugene communities. Team Washington was comprised of children who participate in The First Tee of Seattle and South Puget Sound chapters.

Thank you to Columbia Sportswear, our Title Sponsor, and all thirty-six participants!
Jackson Kelland, Dakota Larrison, and Douglas Bailey hold the 2017 Gearhart Cup!

These participants also had the opportunity to tee it up with our sponsors in the adult/junior Gearhart Cup competition. The juniors had fun demonstrating all of the life skill lessons they have learned throughout their years as participants in our programs while playing side-by-side with the adults. The participants were all very impressive as they represented their local chapters with confidence, respect, integrity, and sportsmanship. The event created memories for these children that will last a lifetime!
