The annual ICMG charity golf outing to benefit The First Tee was held on January 30, 2013, at the Marriott Renaissance Vinoy’s beautiful golf course in St. Petersburg, Florida. The shamble format was enjoyed by nearly 100 golfers on a great day. ICMG participants were able to witness firsthand how their contributions benefit the students that participate in The First Tee by having The First Tee students and staff with us at both the general session that morning and on the course. This year our members and sponsors raised over $11,000 for the St. Petersburg chapter of The First Tee - a new record. We hope to continue this trend next year at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, where we will try to break that record for the local chapter there.
This year’s winners were:
Kevin Christensen, Alex Zeid
George Michelic, Charlie Schaitberger
Derek Overton, Brad Novak
Joe Novak, Josh O’Gara
Jim Jordan, Mike Shevlin
Tim Delay, Tom DeNoma
Congratulations and thanks to all who participated in this year's event!
About The First Tee
The First Tee is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit initiative of the World Golf Foundation based in St. Augustine, FL. The First Tee's mission is to impact lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. The organization has been a great inspiration to young people across the country. "By building character, we lay the foundation that young people need to meet the many challenges throughout life," says executive director Joe Louis Barrow Jr. The First Tee program benefits participants through year-round programs by offering a caring, supervised, and safe environment to spend free time, emphasizes physical exercise, and encourages academic success.

The ICMG golf tournaments raise significant funding for local chapters of The First Tee, but more importantly they bring awareness of the great work being done. We hope telling the story of The First Tee brings even more supporters to the organization.
