The First Tee
Supported by golf's major organizations, The First Tee is a youth development organization impacting the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
The First Tee Life Skills Experience, a curriculum focused on teaching character education through life skills, is one of the unique features that differentiates The First Tee from other youth initiatives and junior golf programs. Through this program, participants learn about The First Tee Nine Core Values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
Since its inception in 1997, The First Tee has introduced golf and its values to nearly five million young people on golf courses, in schools and on military instillations. Find a First Tee location.
The First Tee is our nominated charity for the USA and will receive donations from subscriptions to Let's Get Golfing from USA members.
