The First Tee

The First Tee

3 golf & character-education programs funded

In 2016, The First Tee committed to opening two new First Tee Drive and one National School programs in the public schools and after school programs. All three are very enthusiastic about being able to introduce golf and The First Tee character-education to their students and very deserving of our offer to provide it to them without charge. Funding from the Furyk Foundation will be used to purchase The First Tee program (DRIVE or NSP) for these schools. Each purchase is a one-time expense that includes all needed equipment, training for designated program leaders (YSO) or the PE teacher (NSP), and a curriculum manual/activities guide. Our chapter (TFT-GCNKY) provides ongoing local support to program leaders/teachers at no additional charge. Jim has been recognized as an honorary board member of the First Tee of Jacksonville.
