The First Tee strives to teach young people about values, life skills and healthy habits they can use on and off the golf course. And with national youth opportunities like The First Tee Academies to help prepare participants for college golf, it’s no wonder that The First Tee has seen more than 1,750 of our alumni go on to play college golf!
“Playing in The First Tee events allowed me and my game to grow in a supportive and welcoming environment. The First Tee has been an ideal place for me to grow,” said Clare Sorensen, an alumna from The First Tee of Greater Sacramento and member of the University of San Francisco‘s golf team.
You have felt the excitement of March Madness with its buzzer beaters and Cinderella stories. You have gripped the arms of your chair as the National Championship in football comes down to the final seconds. Now you will get the chance to feel the electricity of another NCAA Championship – this one taking place in May as college golf’s very best vie for not one – but TWO titles on Golf Channel.
They’ll take you LIVE to Hutchinson, Kansas for the final three days of the 2014 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship tournament as an individual and a team champion will be crowned. The famed Prairie Dunes Country Club – carved out of the Kansas landscape in the 1930’s and host to numerous national championships – will be a true test for this year’s competitors.
Golf Channel will provide extensive live coverage of the tournament and their signature shows – Morning Drive and Golf Central – will broadcast live from the course each day. Can Alabama defend the title – or will a new champion arise from the Midwest plains?
Mark your calendars now for the return of live coverage of the NCAA Championships for the first time in 14 years, May 26 – 28 on Golf Channel.
