The “Friends of The First Tee” Inaugural Golf Tournament will be held October 6, 2018 at the YMCA Par 3 “Home of The First Tee of Lakeland”. The event is a golf tournament which is comprised of three-player teams consisting of: one The First Tee Community Ambassador, one friend invited by the Ambassador and one The First Tee Junior golfer.
Your contribution to the “Friends of The First Tee” event will allow us to present up to 2 of our The First Tee juniors with college scholarships.
Also, you will be helping provide funds that will allow youth, who normally can not participate due to the inability to pay, an opportunity to participate in The First Tee Golf and Life Skills Program.
