Join us for The First Tee of the Jersey Shore's 2nd Annual Ladies (and Gents1) on the Links on Monday, June 24th at Hollywood Golf Club (Deal, NJ) as we honor LPGA Tour veteran and ten-time winner Val Skinner with The First Tee of the Jersey Shore Ace Award.

THE ACE AWARD is reserved for elite golfers with deep connections to the Jersey Shore who have a significant, positive impact on the sport of golf. Ace Award recipients embody the Nice Core Values of The First Tee in their athletic achievements and illustrate a demonstrated

commitment to growing the game and helping others. Val’s prestigious and accomplished golf

career, along with her impressive and passionate commitment to philanthropy, combine to make her the ideal Ace Award recipient!

The event will begin with a brunch at 10am followed by a shotgun start at 12pm with an after golf reception. All proceeds from the event will be put towards The First Tee of the Jersey Shore’s “Fairways for All” program. Fairways for ALL is a fundraising umbrella encompassing our efforts to expand The First Tee of the Jersey Shore. We strive to increase and encourage diversity and inclusion of kids and families who are underrepresented in the sport of golf. These populations are defined as:  racial & ethnic minorities, females, children with special needs, LBGTQ kids and families, and families facing financial hardships. The funds raised will help provide direct need transportation, program “golferships”, and program delivery & expansion.
