What are we raising money for?

All of the money raised goes directly to promoting, growing and sustaining all of the character building programs conducted through First Tee – Fort Worth. Annually, our programs touch the lives of over 45,000 children within our 5 county service area: Tarrant, Johnson, Parker, Hood, and the southern portion of Denton county. We conduct weekly life skills programming at one of our several locations across the metroplex which seamlessly combines life skills curriculum and an introduction to the game of golf. Additionally, we service community centers and after-school programs, as well as in-school physical education classes throughout the year.

Each of these programs provide vital tools that aid in creating positive habits and skills needed to lead a successful and healthy life. Skills such as goal setting and conflict management, emotional management, learning to appreciate diversity and handle adversity, are all key commitments of each of our programs. But we can’t sustain those programs without you! Your efforts help us provide certified, trained coaches, equipment, transportation, opportunities and experiences, and every dollar counts.

How do I raise money?

When can I come out to play on the day of the event?

Whenever you want! Play all day, play for a few hours, play whenever you like – it’s up to you! We have the entire course to ourselves for the whole day, so come in the morning, the afternoon, or even play a little and come back to finish! We will open registration at 6:45AM, but check in whenever you arrive.

Does my score on each hole/round matter?

No way! Who wants to slow down, count, and write their score on a scorecard? Our goal is to play fast, so you’re only responsible for keeping track of the number of holes you play (plus – we have a dedicated team to help you!)
