We're excited to announce this years' Jazz on the Fairway Golf Tournament hosted by S.H.I.N.E. Community Development Corporation (CDC). We have partnered with The First Tee of Greater
Washington, DC and the returned to Prince George’s County.”
"It all started with a question: Why don't more kids play golf?"
In 1997, a partnership among the LPGA, the Masters Tournament, the PGA of America, the PGA TOUR, and the USGA looked to make that question a thing of the past. To find the answer, they formed The First Tee. This new organization, The First Tee, started as a way to bring an affordable junior golf program to communities that did not have them, especially in economically disadvantaged areas. What The First Tee soon discovered was that blending the rules of the game with life and leadership skills, kids and teens didn't just learn how to putt - they were learning important values. The First Tee offers more than golf lessons for kids: we offer life lessons. Over the past 20 years, The First Tee has grown to reach millions of kids and teens. Our program helps kids build character and confidence, developing the core values and life skills that stay with them on and off the golf course."
