2019 is a very exciting year for The First Tee of Connecticut, as we are celebrating our 20th year in Connecticut!!  Playing in or being a sponsor of one of The First Tee of Connecticut’s Charity Classic golf events is a great way to help thousands of Connecticut’s children. Net proceeds from the tournaments help us keep our lesson fees affordable so we are grateful to every sponsor, player, volunteer and golf club who help us help kids!

The First Tee of Connecticut is grateful for the generosity of individual donors and corporate sponsors who dedicate a portion (and in many cases, all) of the net proceeds they raise at golf tournaments and other fundraisers to The First Tee of Connecticut. These events are known as “Benefactor” or “Third Party” events and they are a tremendous help to us in keeping our program fees affordable for everyone ($7-$9 per lesson, in most locations).
