Why should we bring more girls to the game? The First Tee has great potential to impact girls from diverse populations in the areas of physical and emotional well-being. Our programs can provide young women the platform they need to become high-achievers in their personal goals, whether it’s collegiate golf or their professional careers. Your chapter has the power to help achieve The First Tee’s Phase IV goal intended to transform the lives of girls and grow female participation in the game.
Let’s Go Girls! Promotional Toolkit This toolkit is your guide to help you promote the benefits of girls playing golf and encourage more participation. You may choose to customize materials with information such as your chapter name, location, website link and more to help reach your audience.
