Our Promise

First Tee is a youth development organization that enables kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, we create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids can carry to everything they do.

At First Tee – Augusta, we help kids discover what’s inside of them, guide them to strengthen it, and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do. We’ve spent ~20 years building experiences  that build character to empower kids through a lifetime of new challenges and continuous personal growth.  Experiences are our greatest teacher.  We believe in creating 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.

Our chapter is unique, and so are the young people and families we serve.  We create opportunities to hear, share and learn from the perspective of others.  We empower diverse voices to help us shape and evolve our approach to build greater relevance for our work.  First Tee – Augusta is not about improving your golf score.  It’s about strengthening what young people bring to everything they do, including golf.
