    ANAHEIM, CA, June 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The First Tee of Orange County (TFTOC), a widely respected nonprofit committed to providing youth with translatable life skills through golf, will proudly host its fifth annual Charity Golf Classic on Monday, August 21, at Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club.

The event begins at 10 a.m. with registration, followed by a tournament shotgun start at noon. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy one of two spectacular layouts designed by iconic golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr.

Golfers also will spend time on the course with TFTOC youth participants as they provide forecaddie services for each foursome, demonstrating what TFTOC has taught them about life and golf. The golf event concludes with a reception and dinner at 5 p.m., including a silent auction, awards ceremony and remarks from youth participants.

With the support of the local community, we can maintain and grow vital youth education programs that use golf to teach."
