With $9.5 million grant, The First Tee will bolster its offerings for teenage golfers

There may not be a better moment than now to support junior golf. That’s exactly what PGA Superstore and Arthur Blank, co-founder of Home Depot and owner of the Atlanta Falcons, have done. Their $9.5 million grant will go towards bolstering The First Tee’s offerings for teenage golfers.

The grant will fund a leadership summit as well as build up The First Tee’s curriculum for teenagers. At the summit, the first of which will take place in 2021 in Montana, 40 teenagers from First Tee programs both in the United States and international chapters will be invited to participate in the week-long event structured around teaching leadership skills.
