Our History

The First Tee of Tri-Cities was introduced by the Tennessee Golf Foundation in 2007.  Since its inception in 1991, the TGF mission has been to promote golf in Tennessee through activities that positively impact youth and families, provide accessibility, instill core values, and foster camaraderie while creating enduring memories.  The First Tee of Tri-Cities will execute that message by giving young people of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship.
