About Us

We enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.

The First Tee – Naples/Collier is a chapter of an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. On golf courses, in elementary schools and on military instillations, the First Tee has helped shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by teaching values like integrity, respect and perseverance. Through our programs, young people discover how skills essential to success on a golf course can also help them flourish in life. To learn more, visit www.firsttee.org.
