Central to the Tennessee Golf Foundation’s mission is
Promoting the Game of Golf to Kids of All Ages
Across Tennessee, junior golf continues to boom. We’ve seen record numbers of participants over the past few years. We could not accommodate these numbers without the support of the golf community. Help us continue to provide accessible and affordable programming to the youth of Tennessee.
The mission of First Tee is to impact lives of young people by providing educational
programs that build character, values and promote healthy choices through golf.
Drive, Chip and Putt is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf.
Bringing communities together through fun and team golf experiences that transcend golf itself, like friendships that last for years to come or a newfound sense of confidence.
Since 1973, the TPGA Junior Golf Academy has provided aspiring young golfers with world class golf instruction provided by many of the nation’s leading PGA golf professionals and NCAA college golf coaches.
