The First Tee of Raritan Valley is very grateful and appreciative of the great support that we continue to receive, but there is still much to be accomplished. Here is a photo from Baltusrol Golf Club with their recent donation of 6,000 golf balls to our chapter. Many private clubs and individuals donate golf clubs, golf shoes, golf balls, and other items that can be utilized by our students wishing to begin our program. If you would like to donate golf clubs, we accept sets of irons, metal drivers and fairway metals, putters, and wedges. If you wish to support the continued success of this program and would like to make a monetary donation, please click here.
Sponsor A Child
The First Tee of Raritan Valley is one of 204 chapters of The First Tee, a national organization widely recognized as delivering highly effective youth development programs. The First Tee provides young people of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop life-enhancing skills and values (Perseverance, Courtesy, Honesty, Judgment, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, and Responsibility), through golf and character education. The program is extremely disciplined, with detailed lesson plans truly balancing the development of golf skills with life and value lessons.
TFTRV delivers two nine-week sessions (Spring and Fall) at 6 local golf facilities. Children seven years of age through high school, from Middlesex, Somerset, Morris, Union, Hunterdon, and Warren counties are served by these programs. We do not turn anyone away based on ability to pay. Currently, about 28% of our students require financial assistance. Thatʼs why we’re reaching out and requesting that you assist with covering the cost to Sponsor a Child for one of the session(cost $100), an entire year(cost $175) or summer camp(cost $200).
