About Us

We enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.

Building Game Changers

First Tee Idaho is a youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people throughout Idaho. Founded in 2005, First Tee Idaho is one of over 150 chapters of First Tee, an organization that is recognized as one of the premier youth character-education programs in the country.

First Tee Idaho delivers the Life Skills Experience curriculum to youth ages 7-18. This curriculum, which teaches life lessons and leadership skills through the game of golf, was developed by experts in the field of positive youth development and is delivered by coaches who have trained through The First Tee Coach Program. In addition to learning fundamentals of the golf swing and the game, our character education and life skills programs help kids and teens prepare for success at school, at home and in our community.

First Tee Idaho is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. We rely on local support from numerous corporations, foundations and individuals.
