Noli Snobar, Partner at BFBA is playing in the 2016 Capital Cup Golf Tournament to Support The First Tee of Greater Sacramento.
Noli Snobar selected The First Tee of Greater Sacramento as his charity for the 2016 Capital Cup for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Noli is an avid, albeit mediocre golfer. Not only does The First Tee provide an opportunity for children from all backgrounds to learn the game of golf, but they do so while simultaneously teaching these children about life through their The First Tee Nine Core Values & Nine Healthy Habits. They use golf as a vehicle to teach core values, life skills and healthy habits to young people and give them the skills they need to flourish in their lives today and in the future. Their programs serve juniors from the ages of 3-18, and individuals with disabilities from youth through adulthood. The First Tee of Greater Sacramento is currently impacting over 18,500 young people in the greater Sacramento Area.
For me personally, I experienced The First Tee of Greater Sacramento via my then 6 year old’s involvement. My daughter was a participant in the summer program, and much like most dads, I was so excited to hear how her first day at golf camp went. So I inquired as to what they did at camp that day. “What clubs did you hit? How far did you hit the ball?” When my daughter answered with “Daddy, today we learned about Respect!”, I realized that this was an organization that I wanted to be involved with. Please join Noli in supporting a wonderful Sacramento based organization!

More about The First Tee of Greater Sacramento
Today, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento is one of The First Tee’s largest chapters and a leader in the field of programs for teens and the disabled. The First Tee of Greater Sacramento has three site courses and eleven affiliate courses in the Greater Sacramento area. They have created a true farm system that supports children as young as 3 until they reach college.
The benefits of this system can be seen in the rewards of the young people involved. Over a hundred juniors have received college golf scholarships, while twice as many have received scholarships based on their character, community involvement and leadership skills from The First Tee of Greater Sacramento and the National First Tee. One participant and junior mentor, Kristen Red-Horse, received a four-year academic scholarship to New York University as a result of her participation in our program. Four others, Nichole Cruz, Mike Gomez, DJ Milligan, and Nick Schafer, each received a $10,000 scholarship from The First Tee.
With over 30 years of history, our youth development organization has touched the lives of countless young people in the Sacramento area. The most significant impact with youth in our programs is not the aforementioned success stories but the learning and living of The First Tee Nine Core Values (Honesty, Respect, Courtesy, Judgment, Perseverance, Confidence, Sportsmanship, Responsibility, and Integrity) and The First Tee Nine Healthy Habits of (Energy, Play, Safety, Vision, Mind, Family, Friends, School, and Community). The First Tee of Greater Sacramento looks forward to continuing to serve the young people of our community for many years to come.
