Growing In the Game of Golf

Golf has a unique ability to instill and develop essential values, such as honesty, integrity, respect, sportsmanship and self-esteem. To give every child the chance to develop these qualities and grow in the game of golf, Three Rivers offers a golf scholarship program with The First Tee.
