About Us

We enable kids to build the 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.

About Us

First Tee Northern Nevada is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that teaches young people ages 7-17 life skills including honesty, respect, confidence, and sportsmanship through the game of golf. The First Tee of Northern Nevada will never turn a child away because of the inability to pay.

The Northern Nevada Youth Golf Foundation was founded in 1998 to create a Chapter of the First Tee in the Northern Nevada area. In August 2005,  First Tee Northern Nevada was recognized as an official chapter of First Tee.

Our vision is to instill The First Tee Nine Core Values and thereby provide the vehicle through which young people can achieve their dreams, thrive socially, excel academically and athletically, and become successful adults with integrity, strong family values, and a commitment to our community.

First Tee Northern Nevada’s objective is to enhance youth development goals in our community through the game of golf by providing:

  • An environment that empowers kids to dream, establish goals, build self-esteem, enhance family relationships, create a sense of community, and strengthen values
  • Programs that help young people develop socially, intellectually, and physically
  • The opportunity for kids to develop into adults who have a passion for life, a clear sense of direction, and a desire to help others.
