The First Tee is reliant upon charitable contributions to carry out our mission and is grateful to receive widespread support from those in the golf industry and beyond. A fundamental strength of The First Tee is the direct support it receives from some of the game’s most respected and influential organizations. Their leadership has inspired others to embrace the mission of The First Tee.

The Children’s Course/The First Tee of Greater Portland holds multiple fundraising events throughout the year. Without the participation from all our sponsors these events would not be nearly as successful. Thank you for your sponsorship and support!
