We are asking for your help to raise $2.5 million to transform Walnut Lane Golf Club and the lives of our young people. Your gift will provide young people with a safe and clean space to learn, while enjoying healthy meals, engaging innovative educational curriculum, and state of the art technology. Bridging the gap between the classroom and the golf course is how we Build Game Changers, creating tomorrow’s leaders.

The new Michael J. Brown Youth Learning Center will allow First Tee to host more school students on field trips and have more kids attend weekly classes, exponentially increasing our educational impact along with launching our first ever after-school support program, “Homework & Hitting”. Utilizing technology, the classroom and simulator will make learning both fun and engaging.
