The Core Values Cup
Thursday, October 20th, 2022
6PM Shotgun Start
On Thursday, October 20th, teams made up of three donors and one First Tee Participant will compete for the coveted Core Values Cup! Each donor is asked to raise at least $500 by asking ten friends, colleagues and/or family members for $50 each! Also, each First Tee Participant is asked to try to raise $100 before the event.

Congratulations to the winners of The 7th Annual Core Values Cup from left to right; Tommy Biershenk, Matt Sharkey, First Tee — Upstate South Carolina Eagle Level Participant Tyre Sullivan and Bern Dupree and the team raised $10,066!
The competition’s format is a stableford format, meaning that each player plays their own ball and designated a point value for their score on that hole:
- Bogey = 1 point
- Par = 2 points
- Birdie = 4 points
- Hole-in-one = 8 points
Remember, this event is not only about the golf but also a fundraiser! Meaning a point value is given to each player based on how much money they raise and that is added to the final score:
- Donor raises at least $400 = 1 point / Participant raises $80 = 1 point
- At least $500 = 2 points / Participant $100 = 2 points
- At least $1,000 = 4 points / Participant $150 = 4 points
- At least $2,000 = 8 points / Participant $200 = 8 points
The Core Values Cup is a unique event for our donors and participants of First Tee — Upstate South Carolina. This gives our participants the opportunity to use the interpersonal skills that they learn during their classes. It also gives our donors an opportunity to see the mission of First Tee in action firsthand!
Our total goal is to raise over $30,000 for the mission of the First Tee – Upstate South Carolina in 2022.
