Buffalo, NY, July 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Custom Golf Materials continues its partnership with the First Tee Program in Metropolitan New York. As a Core Value member of The First Tee Program, since 2010, the support for the children and youth that take part in the programs is invaluable. The First Tee is a youth program that provides character-building educational programs that instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices all done through the game of golf.
Greg DeRosa, President of the Custom Golf Materials consistently brings new ideas to fruition. One such idea was the 2011 day of stroke analysis, golf instruction and eighteen holes of golf that he hosted at his home club of Wheatley Hills. He contributes his time and resources to benefit the Metropolitan New York First Tee Program. DeRosa commented on the day, "Giving these exceptional kids from The First Tee a chance to play at private clubs is an easy way to give back to the game, and provides these deserving young people with a great benefit." Hopefully, more opportunities will arise for the youth of the First Tee to play on private courses in the future. With supportive members like Custom Golf Materials and Greg DeRosa, the youth can continue to access the leadership and life skills that the First Tee offers.
The nine core values that are taught through the First Tee serve the children and youth well as they grow up. Respect, honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, responsibility are five of the core values taught in the First Tee Program. Courtesy, judgment, confidence and sportsmanship round out the list. As a Core Value partner, Custom Golf Materials reflects those qualities in their quality work and materials.
