Our End of Year Awards are time to celebrate our students for their hard work throughout the course of the year!

The First Tee Nine Core Values are at the heart of our program, so each year our coaches nominate participants who have exemplified each of them. (We also have a TARGET award for our littlest golfers!). A participant of any age can be selected for their display of honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, or judgement.

Our Participant of the Year Award, our highest honor, goes to a high school student who has gone above and beyond. These participants work hard not only at improving their own golf game and leadership skills; they also give back to the community and encourage their peers and younger participants. We also celebrate some of our adults, including Coach of the Year and Volunteer of the Year, at our Awards Ceremony.
