Why Golf?

Experiences are our greatest teacher. First Tee believes in developing the ones that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see kids’ build self confidence, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.

Hi families! We are excited to announce our 2021 Program line-up. We invite kids and teens (ages 6-18) from across Greater Cleveland to participate with us for some fun and friendship on the fairways!

If your child is interested in making friends, being outside, learning about golf, improving golf skills, or having fun, then we are the program for you! In a safe environment, participants will seamlessly learn from trained coaches all about First Tee’s Core Values and Life Skills.

No equipment is needed as we will provide everything a young person needs to learn and enjoy the great game of golf — including their very own golf shirt and hat!
