Our Mission: To positively impact the lives of Tennessee’s youth by developing their assets through the life skills experience and the core values of golf.
The life skills curriculum focuses on self management, goal setting, resilience and conflict resolution. There are five levels in the program: PLAYer, Par, Birdie, Eagle and Ace.
Players learn values like honesty and responsibility by calling penalties on themselves and reporting their own score. By participating in The First Tee, youth are introduced to Nine Core Values which are incorporated throughout the program.Read more
