On Saturday, March 29, nine of our fourth grade junior golfers participated in The First Tee National School Program Champions Challenge, presented by Children's Memorial Hermann. The Champions Challenge is a culminating skills event comprised of nearly 360 fourth graders from 14 area school districts.  Two students from each participating elementary school earn a spot to compete in this fun-filled competition that is held the Saturday before the PGA TOUR Shell Houston Open at The First Tee of Greater Houston's Davdi Shindeldecker Campus, located in Humble, Texas. The event provides an opportunity for participants to transition and apply their putting, chipping, driving, and etiquette skills on a “real” golf course as well as attend a PGA TOUR event. 

The Clubs of Kingwood & the Golf Advantage School students present include:

Atascocita Springs:  Hannah Woo

Bear Branch Elementary:  Luke Bass

Deerwood Elementary:  Luke Lohman (2nd place boy on orange course); Ryleigh McClain (1st place girl on orange course)

Fall Creek Elementary:  Hannah Cleveland (3rd place girl on orange course* won scorecard playoff)

Greentree Elementary:  Peyton Varnadoe (T3rd place girl on orange course)

Golf Advantage School:  Director of Instruction, Aurora Kirchner-McClain, is CAPTAIN for the TEAM McILROY (4th year as a captain the last five years)   

CONGRATS to all our GOLF SCHOOL STUDENTS. Miss Aurora was so proud that many of the kids from our junior programs qualified and showed their skills. It was so great to see all our kids and parents (who volunteered & watched) at this yearly event for the 4th graders!
