Our partnership with the Kansas City Golf Association and Youth on Course provide youth in the Par Level and above a free handicap index and membership to Youth on Course (a $40 value), included in their program registration, which allows participants to play over 20 golf courses in Kansas City and surrounding areas for just $5 per round.

On a national level, local participants of The First Tee of Greater Kansas City have the option of applying for special opportunities to improve on their life skills and golf skills gained at The First Tee. Of the ten opportunities, the one that stands out the most is the Pure Insurance Championship benefiting The First Tee, where participants have the chance to play the number 1 golf course in America. Pebble Beach and are paired with PGA Tour Champions players while being televised on the golf channel.

Remaining in The First Tee as a participant can serve very beneficial as participants look to higher education.
