Did you know that donations generated through The 100 Friends of The First Tee account for 10% of our organization’s annual operating budget? The 100 Friends of the First Tee is a special group of donors, comprised of those who are committed to supporting the youth in our community through the mission of The First Tee. Members act as community ambassadors, identifying and engaging those that would benefit from our programs. Members assist our staff in identifying potential sponsors and readily contribute special skills, talents and resources of themselves, their company or associates, to promote and improve the interests of The First Tee.
Member benefits include four quarterly invitations to join us at our golf and networking events at top regional golf facilities. Memberships are good for 1 year from the time you join – so you will receive four quarterly invitations, regardless of the time of year you join our group.

Metairie Country Club is a private, member-owned, full-service, facility, where membership is by invitation only. BUT, there’s an exception! Members of The 100 Friends of The First Tee play the stunning Seth Raynor-designed golf course as one of their exclusive Member events every year! Not only it is an opportunity to play the private course, but an opportunity to play the private course in March, when Louisiana weather is at it’s finest. Members may invite one guest to enjoy catered lunch and play 18 holes.
