The First Tee focuses on teaching the game of golf to boys and girls age 7 through 17, while simultaneously teaching them core values, such as honesty, integrity, respect and perseverance, and habits that promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

More than a game, The First Tee is a youth development initiative of the World Golf Foundation and is supported by the leading organizations in golf including the Masters Tournament, LPGA, PGA of America, PGA TOUR and United States Golf Association. The First Tee of Greater Chicago chapter is dedicated to teaching golf and life skills to young people, and is currently reaching nearly 50,000 Chicago area youth on an annual basis.
