History and Background
First Tee exists to 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. To us, the most important part of our mission is to serve kids of all ages and backgrounds through the game of golf.
First Tee — Triangle was founded in 2004 as The First Tee of Wake County. After a few years of steady growth, The First Tee of Wake County became First Tee — Triangle. We proudly serve youth at five golf course facilities across the Triangle and 14 Wake County Elementary schools. In January 2020, we became the proud owners of TriGolf driving range formerly known as Triangle Golf Complex. This land will become the home of First Tee — Triangle Center for Youth Development.
