The First Tee

In brief, The First Tee is a national organization that teaches young boys and girls (ages 7-18 years old) life skills through the game of golf. Upon introduction to the program, kids will learn the basics of the game, as well as the nine core values used as a foundation for learning life skills.

The First Tee’s mission is to impact the lives of young people by improving educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. The program teaches juniors ranging from beginners to those playing competitively how to play, improve their game and develop life-long friendships.

Located at J.S. Clark Golf Course, our fall program will offer six sessions and Saturday play day tournament.
