We are excited to launch our first spring carnival at The First Tee Learning Center where will we host the area’s biggest putt-putting party! We hope to have over 400 kids out to enjoy a free full round of putt putt, receiving treats at each hole and also learning about the fun activities offered at The First Tee during our 2017 season. This is a celebration of our season beginning and a special way for our volunteers and partners to give back to the community.
