About Us

The mission of The First Tee of Greater New Orleans is to positively impact the lives of our local youth by providing structured educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

  • There are currently over 30 Greater New Orleans schools enrolled in our National School Program, which has a positive impact on over 15,000 local Elementary students per year.
  • With our Life Skills Experience on-course programs, we reach almost 1,000 youth each year with our First Tee Nine Core Values and character building life skills. Almost half of the children enrolled are able to participate thanks to a financial scholarship provided by our donors.
  • Our chapter partners with other area youth organizations including NORDC, Excite All-Stars, Southern University New Orleans, Tulane University, The Boys and Girls Club, Wilcox Academy, HANO and Pleasant Zion Baptist Church to introduce students to The First Tee DRIVE summer and after-school program.
