The First Tee wants every young person to have the very best shot at leading an exceptional life, and use the challenges and rewards of golf as a platform to teach the life skills necessary to do just that.

“I’ve been an educator for 37 years and I’ve seen dozens of youth development and leadership programs. Most of them do good things, but the impact The First Tee program has on lives of young people is undeniable. Until I joined the organization, I had never witnessed anything like it. It is unique, and it is powerful.” – Kevin Long, Executive Director
