First Tee — Central Iowa is a youth development organization that teaches life skills and healthy habits through the game of golf.
Since our inception, in 2007, we have positively impacted the lives of over 12,000 youth annually in Central Iowa through our First Tee Program, First Tee School Program, First Tee Community Programs, Wendy Carlson Girls Golf Program and community outreach.
No child is ever turned away – scholarships are available to those unable to afford the cost of the certification program.
