Funds from the 1995 and 1996 PGA TOUR Championships were placed in the Southern Hills Country Club Charitable Foundation and in March 2000, Southern Hills Country Club's Board of Governors approved the application of the foundation assets toward the promotion of golf to children of all diversities and social strata. The Southern Hills Country Club Charitable Foundation has been instrumental in the development and continued success of the First Tee program at Mohawk Park for the youth of Tulsa.Learn More
Mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs and opportunities that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
The First Tee of Tulsa offers the program at no cost to all young people ages 8-18. The purpose of the program is to create and implement programs to assist students in school, make positive decisions in regards to their future, and give them opportunities they most likely would not encounter if they were not a member of the First Tee of Tulsa
The First Tee of Tulsa programming began in the summer of 2001 and began with 381 students the first year. The First Tee Learning Center opened in the fall of 2001. The facility is complete with computer labs, classroom space, and hitting bays. The practice range was built in 2001 and the front nine of Pecan Valley was reconstructed for First Tee use as well as for the public.
Each chapter within the First Tee network is funded locally. This means 100% of all monetary contributions done through our website goes towards funding the First Tee — Tulsa program.Donate Today
