Golf Academy of America (GAA) in Phoenix announced the donation of a number of sets of refurbished golf clubs to the First Tee of Phoenix having taken place at the GAA Phoenix campus on December 15th. Woods, irons, wedges, and putters were placed in the capable hands of GAA students, who used the college’s state-of-the-art clubmaking equipment to clean, regrip, and otherwise breathe new life into the clubs for future use by the First Tee of Phoenix’ juniors.

“We could not be more excited to team up with the First Tee of Phoenix for this program,” said Tim Eberlein, GAA Phoenix’s Campus Director. “We are thrilled to play a part in this great philanthropic effort. Everyone involved in this initiative — from the donors up to the Golf Academy of America students who fixed the clubs up for the kids — deserves recognition for their generosity.”

The First Tee of Phoenix serves the community by helping area children build enduring character and life skills with the game of golf as a main catalyst for that growth.

Golf Academy of America (GAA) is the world’s largest and longest-running two-year golf career college and prepares graduates for a wide array of golf career opportunities in the $76 billion per year industry. 

The GAA boasts an exceptional career placement record for graduates from its campuses located in Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Phoenix, and San Diego, as well as a new campus in Dallas, which is now enrolling and will begin classes in January 2012.
