About Us

We enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.


Our Chapter is one of many Chapters spread across the United States and other countries. We teach children Life Skills and Healthy Habits through the game of golf. Our games based learning creates a fun atmosphere where kids learn golf skills, life skills and healthy habits. Each game is based on learning all aspects of golf.  Participants learn the Rules of Golf, golf terminology, and situation-based course management strategies. Our goal for each participant is for them to learn to enjoy the game of golf and its inherent values as well as learn to use the Life Skills teachings not only on the golf course. Most importantly the kids learn to use the life skill tools learned at First Tee in their personal lives whether it be at home, in school, or with their friends.
