The First Tee Program


  

The First Tee is a youth development program that offers education, fitness, wellness and life skills to children using golf and its inherent values as context.  Employing activity based programming students begin to acquire life tools and skills to reinforce what  they learn at home and in school.

 

Levels advance on one another and our participants have had measurable and successful results with golf, volunteerism and educational achievement

 

The First Tee is a national and international program with over 500 Chapters in the U.S. and is recognized by private and public agencies as one of the most effective programs in the country.

 

The First Tee is a 501-3c and all programs are subsidized by County facility support, concessionaires, private and public donations.
