The First Tee is a unique program that teaches golf and life skills. All of our teachings build on each other, enabling our participants to progress in golf and life skills. For many participants, The First Tee program will be a new and unique experience. In addition to meeting other young people from many different backgrounds, they will also be exposed to a game that emphasizes courtesy, honesty, self-discipline, and respect. The First Tee of Southeastern New Mexico is dedicated and committed to teaching our communities children about life skills using golf as the vehicle to do so.
