First Tee Manhattan has been able to impact over 410 youth in the Manhattan area through their Life Skills Experience program at Colbert Hills. Many youth are able to participate at an affordable cost because of financial aid made available through First Tee. Along with learning golf skills, First Tee participants learn valuable life skills including interpersonal skills, self-management, goal setting, and resiliency skills.
A parent commented on the program: “This was the first sport that he took up that he did not want to quit. He even wanted to stay to putt around. The instructors genuinely care about the children and sharing the life values and sport. My son loves this program.”
