The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to kids and teens. Through after school and in-school programs, The First Tee is helping shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect, and perseverance through the game of golf.
The First Tee offers group lessons to all kids and teens ages 7 – 18, regardless of background or previous experience. All we ask is that kids come with an open mind and positive attitude.
The Nine Core Values
By bringing golf to a whole new generation, The First Tee had a unique opportunity to focus on the life skills inherent in the game. Whether those challenges are social or emotional, The First Tee uses golf as the foundation for a curriculum that teaches a range of valuable life and leadership lessons.
In every experience with The First Tee, kids are introduced to our Nine Core Values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment.
We don’t just build better golfers. We build character.
