About The First Tee:

The First Tee, an initiative of the World Golf Foundation, has as its
mission, “To impact the lives of young people by providing learning
facilities and educational programs that promote character-development and
life-enhancing values through the game of golf.”

The goal of The First Tee
is to provide the golf-learning facilities and the experience that will
enable kids from every walk of life to partake of a game that teaches values
for life and which can be played for a lifetime.

The First Tee of the Triad
operates at Tanglewood Park and Winston Lake Golf Course in Winston-Salem
and Gillespie Golf Course in Greensboro. The First Tee of the Triad is one
of 204 chapters operating at some 692 facilities in all 50 states and five
foreign countries with more than 3 million participants. More than 3,300
schools also participate in the program.

Founded by the World Golf
Foundation in 1997, The First Tee is a way to bring golf to children that
otherwise would not be exposed to the game or its positive values. The
program is overseen and has the active support of committee members
representing Augusta National Golf Club, the Ladies Professional Golf
Association, PGA of America, PGA TOUR and the United States Golf
Association. Former President George Bush serves as Honorary Chairman.
