2008 First Tee Fall Program

The First Tee, an initiative of the World Golf Foundation, has as its mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character-development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. Their goal is to provide the golf learning facilities and the experience that will enable kids from every walk of life to partake of a game that teaches values for life and which can be played for a lifetime.

The First Tee programs are seasonally based and last for nine weeks each quarter. They are designed to promote life skills and leadership to youth ages 8-18. All participants start at the Par I level and progress from level to level (i.e., Par II, Birdie I, Birdie II, Eagle I, Eagle II, Ace) over time.

First Tee is located throughout the country. The Memphis location is currently accepting applications: (click link below to retrieve)

As a testimony this is a great program. My youngest son started the program in the 3rd grade and is still in the program. He is now in the 7th grade. The program has helped him tremendously and is a "must" for those looking for a great sport and character builder. There are many golfing scholarships that go untouched due to students not being able to apply for them.
