First Tee of Middle Tennessee is a popular life skills and golf program for kids ages 8 – 18. It teachers youngsters the game of golf along with important life skills like conflict resolution and effective communication.

The First Tee program focuses on instilling nine core values in kids:

• Honesty

An initiative of the World Golf Foundation, First Tee began in 1997.
