The First Tee

The mission of The First Tee of Los Angeles is “to impact 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 program’s focus is to establish a lifelong interest in golf by engaging young people in a structured golf curriculum that promotes personal character development within a physical education setting.

The First Tee of Los Angeles achieves this mission by reaching out to youth, ages 6 to 17, especially in communities where golf is traditionally not found – and providing them with professional instruction, discounted access to golf courses and practice facilities and properly fitted equipment.

At the heart of The First Tee of Los Angeles curriculum are the “9 Core Values.”

The Impact of The First Tee

The First Tee prides itself on being much more than a golf program; it is a life skills program. Golf is simply the vehicle that is used to promote healthy choices and establish important life skills that can be used long after they graduate from The First Tee programming.
