What We Do:
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.
What’s new at The First Tee of Greater Knoxville
Play a Round
We even have a Mentor Program where you can sign-up to play golf with one of our First Tee participants.
The facility is open to the public as a daily fee course or you can purchase a membership and play all year. The course has proven to be a challenge for all skill levels, and the practice facility provides a perfect place to work on all parts of the game.
