Famous amateur golfer Bobby Jones once commented that golf is the closest game to living life, “You get bad breaks from good shots, you get good breaks from bad shots, but you have to play the ball where it lies.” Using the game of golf, The First Tee of Pikes Peak teaches core values and life skills to help kids from all backgrounds and ages tackle the good and bad breaks they get in life.
In April 2013, The First Tee of Pikes Peak officially became a part of the Colorado Springs Community with the mission to help Colorado Springs youth discover their best swings and best selves. The First Tee of Pikes Peak is a regional chapter of the international, non-profit The First Tee organization, and is dedicated to helping youth through fun educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices.
The First Tee is more than a junior golf program; every part of the program – the activities, curriculum and staff – is dedicated to helping participants develop confidence, overcome challenges and achieve goals.
Whether on the course or in life, The First Tee equips young people to step up, commit, and follow through.
