The First Tee of the Twin Cities
Golf was a life-long passion for Alexander. He became hooked on the game when he began caddying as a 12 year old boy to financially contribute to his family. He knew what it was to make your own way in life and not complain; to strive to live according to the nine core values outlined by The First Tee of the Twin Cities. He would be pleased to have helped another young person pursue their passion for golf.
