Rolex Girls Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament

May 3, 2023 | Program Spotlight

The Rolex Girls Junior Championship is returning to the Golf Club at Briar’s Creek Monday, June 19, and this year’s event will feature a Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament benefitting First Tee – Greater Charleston.

Annually, this championship attracts the best up-and-coming golfers (ages 12-19) in the nation, most of whom will go on to play Division 1 collegiate golf and potentially the LPGA Tour. The charity event presents an amazing play opportunity for any golfer—young women in particular.

Thanks to a generous gift, one of our program participants, Alice Li, was able to play the Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament when it was last at Briar’s Creek.

“The event showed me how serious I could be about golf, and it pushed me to pursue a role in my high school golf team. It also helped get me into bigger golf tournaments, like SCJGA and PKBGT… I wish others knew that you don’t have to be super good at golf to play in the Charity AM. When I played, I’m pretty sure my nine-hole average was in the 50s. It was really just a super fun experience to go out and play some tournament golf.”

– Alice Li, First Tee – Greater Charleston Program Participant

Alice brought home more than happy memories from the event. She also won a charity event contest, and her prize was a 60 degree wedge, a keepsake that she still loves and uses today.
