The First Tee

The First Tee is a national youth development organization that uses the game of golf to deliver life skills. The program has established Nine Core Values that represent some of the many inherently positive values connected with the game of golf, along with other important life skills such as goal setting, building resilience, and appreciating diversity.
 

The Children's Course is home to The First Tee of Greater Portland. First Tee participants take classes at The Children's Course or one of our other 7 program locations! First Tee kids are introduced to the nine core values and other life skills which are seamlessly integrated into a group golf lesson. Parents are encouraged to reinforce the Core Values and life skills by talking about them, what they mean and what these behaviors can look like at home and in the classroom.
