The First Tee at Whispering Pines



THE FIRST TEE

"To impact the lives of young people around the world by creating affordable and accessible golf facilities to primarily serve those who have not previously had exposure to the game and its positive values."

  • The program consists of an introduction to and instruction on putting, chipping, full-swing, on-course play, rules and etiquette from PGA professionals and volunteers.
  • We serve 1,000 Houston Independent School District (HISD) fifth-graders each school year that come to Camp Olympia for a four-day, three-night outdoors education program.
  • Whispering Pines Golf Club® has a dedicated practice area and a three-hole beginnerís course for The First Tee program.
  • There are approximately 40 local chapters across the country with 90 more slated to open.
  • The First Tee program in Houston at Law Park will provide on-going course and practice venues as well as instruction for these children when they return home to Houston.
  • The PGA Tour, PGA of America, LPGA, USGA and Augusta National Golf Club formed this national initiative for The First Tee.
