About Us

Chapter Overview


First Tee — Greater Wilmington is one Chapter of an international non-profit youth initiative called First Tee. First Tee was created in 1997 by the World Golf Foundation to provide young people of all ethnic and economic backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. By engaging young people in a combination of life skills, leadership and golf activities, they also are exposed to positive traits that will help them achieve success in life. In the process, participants become valuable assets to their community. First Tee Junior Golf and Life Skills Programming is the unique component that sets itself apart from many other successful junior golf programs and youth development programs through sport.
