It’s More Than a Game

The First Tee is a youth development organization that uses the game of golf as a tool to introduce young people to values and life skills that are inherent in the game and can be applied both on and off the course.

But what we do is not nearly as important as why we do it.  

What The First Tee does each day serves as proof of what we believe: that young people matter. And so do their relationships with caring adults. We believe young people should have safe places, such as our chapters, that provide additional support so they can grow socially, emotionally and academically, all of which lead to a more promising future.
