About Us

Our purpose is to develop youth through golf throughout Silicon Valley, transforming their lives and giving them a brighter future.

Our history dates back to 2000 when the San Jose Sports Authority (SJSA) – Santa Clara County’s sports commission – created the Eagles at Rancho del Pueblo (Eagles) junior golf program for East San José youth. In 2005, the Eagles became The First Tee of San José, a new chapter within The First Tee network of over 180 internationally, while remaining a program of SJSA. Having grown substantially by early 2012, the program expanded to all Santa Clara County and East Palo Alto and changed its name (and license) to The First Tee of Silicon Valley. The year 2014 began a new era as we separated from SJSA and became a new, 501c3, non-profit entity, The Future Talent of Silicon Valley DBA First Tee – Silicon Valley. Southern San Mateo County (north to Hwy 92) and Hollister were added to our service area in 2018. We teach our life skills curriculum to over 1,100 youth on the golf course and 14,000 youth in schools and in the community annually, thus serving over 81,234 young people since 2005.

We provide affordable programs in the form of Classes with five progressive, developmentally-appropriate levels at green grass facilities, Outreach to develop character through fun golf games by partnering with teachers and enrichment providers both in-school and in youth-serving organizations, and Opportunities with life-changing experiences to expose youth to the possibilities that surround them.
