“The First Tee teaches children skills that they will need in life through the game of golf. The First Tee has taught me how to handle difficult situations and has helped my demeanour on and off the golf course. I’ve learned if something bad happens to just take it in my stride and move on and not get too upset with myself because it’s history and I can’t change it. The First Tee has also helped me come out of myself and not to be as shy as I was when meeting new people. I will always be grateful to The First Tee for what it has done for me”
“In some respect it’s quite hard to express the impact The First Tee had on our son and to quantify what it has meant and how it influenced him in so many ways. At times, I have been overwhelmed by the opportunities offered to him and the skills it equipped him with for the game of golf and life in general”
"I think that The First Tee programme is an excellent way to help you concentrate on work in school. When I am playing golf, I feel that it helps me to focus better on my school work and to control my anger"
