Why Golf?

Experiences are our greatest teacher. First Tee believes in developing the ones that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see kids’ build self confidence, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.

First Tee Pittsburgh’s Golf Clinics

Typically, here at First Tee Pittsburgh, we offer 90 minute Golf Clinics that are once per week for 5-6 weeks each.  We offer these 5-6 week sessions 6 times per year.

We use golf to teach our participants about Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Goal Setting, and much more.  Our participants earn their way thru our program by passing golf skills and life skills tests at the end of each of our Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions. We like to say that we are building game changers.

We also host Summer Camps in June and Participant Invitational Tournaments here at the Bob O’Connor Golf Course three times per year, Purposeful Practices at local Country Clubs a couple time per year, and other great events throughout the year.  Please see below for WHY we do what we do, and WHERE we do it.

First Tee Pittsburgh’s mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
