The Credit Union Classic benefits The First Tee of Syracuse. The mission of The First Tee of Syracuse is to make an impact on the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.

This unique sporting event has had some prominent Symetra Tour alumni that have competed and gone on to great success on the LPGA. Some of the players include Kristy McPherson, Nicole Castrole and Laura Diaz.

We met an LPGA Symetra Tour player this morning- Therese Koelbaek. This is Therese's third year in the Symetra Tour. She is originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, but moved to the US to play college golf at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. This year alone, she had finished with two top-10's and ranks 31st on the money (top-10 get LPGA Tour Cards in 2015).
