Did you know that donations generated through The 100 Friends of The First Tee account for nearly 10% of our organization’s annual operating budget? The 100 Friends of the First Tee is a special group of donors, comprised of those who are committed to supporting the youth in our community through the mission of The First Tee. Members act as community ambassadors, identifying and engaging those that would benefit from our programs. Members assist our staff in identifying potential sponsors and readily contribute special skills, talents and resources of themselves, their company or associates, to promote and improve the interests of The First Tee.

Member benefits include four quarterly invitations to join us at our golf and networking events at top regional golf facilities. Memberships are good for 1 year from the time you join – so you will receive four quarterly invitations, regardless of the time of year you join our group.
