||The goal of The First Tee of Greater Charlotte is to enrich the lives of young people in the Greater Charlotte area by providing essential life-skills training and character-education through an introduction to the game of golf. Participants learn important skills such as meeting and greeting, goal setting, and resilience while enjoying a lifelong sport. In 2015,
The First Tee of Greater Charlotte impacted more than 1,600 youth through after-school and summer programs and over 100,000 youth through The National School Program which is taught in all CMS Elementary Schools. Participants are eligible to attend national life skills and leadership academies, national playing opportunities such as The First Tee Nature Valley Open and most importantly they are eligible for college scholarships. Over the past three years, The First Tee of Greater Charlotte has awarded over $54,000 in scholarship assistance to graduates and alumni of the program.
