The First Tee junior golf program doesn’t just get kids on the course, it offers them exciting opportunities for growth. With the help of The First Tee national corporate partners, more advanced participants can apply to attend these golf and leadership events. These events often become life-changing experiences allowing them to meet new people, play some golf, achieve greatness, and show off our Nine Core Values in action.

The First Tee Scholars Program The Scholars Program is a distinction awarded to participants who excel in academics, leadership, character development, and chapter and community involvement. The designation of Scholar brings with it eligibility for scholarship opportunities and national events.
