First Tee Kids Programming

First Tee – Triangle exists to enable kids to build strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do. To us, the most important part of our mission is to serve kids of all ages and backgrounds through the game of golf.

We offer programming for kids age 5 up to 18, and operate out of five different golf facilities across the Triangle (TriGolf, Knights Play, River Ridge, Hillandale, Falls Village).

PGA HOPE Raleigh

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being.

The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8 week curriculum, taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. All programs are funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, so the cost of programming is free to all Veterans.
