About Us

Who we Are

The First Tee of Greater Austin (TFTGA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit youth development organization dedicated to providing young people with educational programs to build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

In 2012-13, the Greater Austin Chapter served more than 7,100 kids in the Austin community at the Harvey Penick Golf Campus, multiple satellite locations around Austin, and the National School Program (NSP) which brought The First Tee curriculum, 9 Core Values and 9 Healthy Habits, into 7 area schools.

Manor Independent School District not only implemented the program in its schools, but also adopted the “9 Core Values” throughout the entire district where they are used as the foundation for success for his students. We’re very proud of our work there, and thrilled to see the kids flourish under the program.
