The Children's Course is a 9 hole, par 3 golf course for kids,
families and friends of all ages to enjoy.

We partner with a national youth development organization, The First Tee, which introduces the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. We help shape lives of children from all walks of life. It's making a difference!

Construction is underway!
Our new Learning Center will triple the size of our current facility. We will be able to serve as many as 1,500 children, 365 days a year.
The new Learning Center will include a multi-purpose room, classroom and conference room. Learn about Sponsorship opportunities HERE!

Jack has been involved with The Children's Course since 2002. He and his wife Kathleen were looking for somewhere to combine their donations and where they could see the impact. With their love of kids and golf, TCC was an easy fit. Jack has also been involved as a mentor for many years.

"The dedication of the staff and the passion serving these kids is remarkable. I was a mentor for years and some of the kids still reach out for a game now and then. Many of them are really good golfers. All of them are fine young men and women. They are the product of the core value system of TCC/TFTGP."  ~ Jack Kurrle
