Background & Purpose
Established in 2008, First Tee – Greater Charleston is a local 501(c)(3) serving young people, ages 5-18, from all walks of life. We utilize on-course, in-school, and community programs to teach the game of golf and its inherent values to more than 17,000 children each year in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties.
But we’re more than a golf program… We’re a youth development organization backed by enthusiastic donors, coaches, and volunteers who want to give Charleston Area young people every possible advantage. We’ve all heard “it takes a village.” The First Tee – Greater Charleston Family is one heck-of-a village, and together, we’re Building Game Changers.
