The First Tee

 

The First Tee of Phoenix at Lone Tree Golf Club

Lone Tree Golf Club officially became an affiliate location of The First Tee of Phoenix (www.TheFirstTeePhoenix.org) in October 2012.  Since that time, our facility has become of one of the largest programming sites in the chapter.  Due to our continued growth, we expanded programming classes to our "sister course" at San Marcos Golf Resort (www.SanMarcosGolf Resort.com) in January 2016.  

Our participants, volunteers and coaches consistently demonstrate the Nine Core Values, and adhere to The First Tee mission statement by striving "to impact the lives of young people by providing learning programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.”
