The First Tee of Middle Tennessee has a service area that covers 39 counties in the Middle Tennessee area.  Currently, we are in the four largest counties with plans to add locations each year.  For information regarding expansion, please contact Thelma Ewell, Executive Director.

CLARKSVILLE:  Located at The River Club Golf and Learning Center, 1150 Warfield Blvd., Clarksville, TN.  For 2016, PLAYer, Par and Birdie programs were offered at this location.  In 2017, we look to continue offering those three levels of The First Tee programs.



SMYRNA:  Located at Smyrna Municipal Golf Course, The First Tee of Smyrna merged with The First Tee of Middle Tennessee effective January 1, 2016. Combining the chapters allowed streamlining of administrative tasks and efficient use of coaching resources. This allowed the development of spring and fall sessions resulting in three seasons of The First Tee sessions at Smyrna Golf Course.

MURFREESBORO:  The First Tee Class at Old Fort (Bloomfield Links).  For 2016, PLAYer and Par classes were offered at this location.
