Research: The Impact of The First Tee 

Our national home office has completed research with teens and alumni that shows that The First Tee's youth development program has a lasting impact, creating better citizens and lifelong golfers in the process.

  • 91% of alumni engaged in community service while in The First Tee.
  • 72% continued after their time in the program ended.
  • These numbers are significant compared to the 22% of the US citizens between ages 16 and 24 participating in community service.
  • 96% of teens in our program say their golf skills have improved
  • 90% of our alumni consider themselves lifelong golfers.
