First Tee is an initiative of the World Golf Foundation. Its mission is to impact the lives of children by providing learning facilities and educational programs to promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. Originally opened on January 14, 2008 as The First Tee of the Coachella Valley, the name was changed in 2020 to become First Tee – Coachella Valley. We are proud to offer this exciting program to the children of the Coachella Valley!
Our vision is to teach The First Tee Nine Core Values, providing the vehicle through which kids can accomplish their dreams, thrive socially, excel academically and athletically and become productive members of society with integrity, strong family values and a commitment to community.
