Our Mission


The First Tee of Naples/Collier is a youth development program that uses the sport of golf to teach students Life Skills.  Values inherent to the game of golf:  self-control and self-reliance are also explored both on course and in a classroom setting.  Students age 7 – 18 learn to apply these values and principles to all aspects of their lives.  Our goal is to have each student leave our program with the self-management, goal setting, and conflict resolution skills necessary to compete and contribute in their respective communities.  Our students lead both on and off the golf course.

The First Tee of Naples/Collier has 9 different programs within our First Tee chapter.  These programs are as follows:  Caddie Program, Elementary School Golf, Immokalee Program, Life Skills (Nine Core Values & Golf), Mentoring Program, Middle School Golf, Mini Tour, Summer Camps, The Jr. Tour & Junior Champions Tour.



To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
