Santaluz Women’s Golf Association Hosts Pro Kids Girls and Scholars at Home and Home Event
The Santaluz Women’s Golf Association is a big supporter of the Carini Women’s Golf Tournament at Pro Kids San Diego. Club members love to work with the girls and young women in an informal environment where they can get to know each other one to one and share life’s experiences at a high level.
Pro Kids | The First Tee of San Diego has a program called Home and Home, where our supporters donate time and provide financial support for these kinds of get togethers. Just this past week, our Women’s Golf Tournament Chairperson Marcela Smith gathered some of her worthy opponents and set up teams with two club members and two Pro Kids girls. The Pro Kids participants ranged in age from nine years old to 19. One of the young women who played is Delia Munoz, a Scholar from Pro Kids – the highest level of achievement through the organization. Delia started playing golf at age twelve and played varsity all four years at Chula Vista High. She attends UCSD, where she is majoring in General Biology with an interest in going to Medical School.
“I love the challenge and difficulty of golf because it teaches you so many life skills,” Delia said. “It’s taught me to be a better communicator, how to speak in front of people, how to stay healthy and to prepare for life’s challenges.
“It’s great and really an honor to participate in these types of events,” said Delia. “We get to know each other and talk about everything, from career paths to families, pets, school and sometimes even golf.”
And Delia does her share of giving back as well – volunteering with classes at Pro Kids, helping the instructors and never forgetting how Pro Kids changed her life.
