Golf to Paradise—First Tee Champions Challenge
The Chubb Classic partners with the Naples, Marco Island & Everglades and The First Tee for the annual Golf to Paradise—First Tee Champions Challenge. This three-day competition gives two participants from 12 different First Tee chapters (24 total participants) an opportunity to play at the Quail Creek Country Club and the Flamingo Island in Naples during the Chubb Classic.
During the 2019 event, 24 participants played a total of nine holes during each of the three days of competition with an alternative format each day. On Friday, the teams played in a scramble, followed by a modified alternate shot on Saturday and closing with a better ball format on Sunday. Final scoring was based off total points earned each day of the nine-hole format. Following play on Sunday, Feb. 17, Catherine Vivongsy and Tyla McAffity from The First Tee of The Triangle and Ryan Myer and Brendan Cleary from The First Tee of Greater Chicago were announced the winners of the 2019 event.
