The First Tee Program
The Valor Club is honored to bring golf’s educational and character building programs to young people through The First Tee Program.
Since 1997, The First Tee has introduced the game of golf and its inherent values to more than seven million young people. On golf courses, in elementary schools and on military installations, The First Tee has helped shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by teaching them values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. In addition to learning fundamentals of the golf swing and the game, the character education and life skills programs offered help young people prepare for success in high school, college and life.
In 2009, The First Tee partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to offer golf and life skills instruction to the children of servicemen and women. Through this partnership, The First Tee programs are offered to children of U.S. Armed Forces on 100 installations in the U.S. and 20 overseas.
