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.

First Tee — Greater Detroit

First Tee — Greater Detroit helps reshape the worldview of young people in Detroit and surrounding areas by teaching life skills and character education though the game of golf. We partner with schools, parents, and the community to provide evidence-based curricula for participants to achieve successful outcomes for their future. The Greater Detroit chapter is part of a national youth development organization, First Tee, focused on instilling life-enhancing values in children through the game of golf.
