The First Tee is a program of the World Golf Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, envisioned in 1997 to provide young people an opportunity to develop character education as well as life enhancing skills and values, through the game of golf.

Like many nonprofit organizations, The First Tee of Central Coast (TFTCC) is experiencing financial challenges. We raise money from participant fees, grants, donations and fundraisers. We try to keep our registration fees as low as possible ($125 for nine, 90 minute classes amounts to only $9.25/hour). In fact, only 30% of our funding comes from registration fees. 70% comes from donations and grants and fundraising events.

TFTCC wants to offer our golf skills & character development education program to as many young people as we can regardless of their financial circumstances. If the $125 registration fee will present a hardship for your family, we want to help. Please see the list below of the types of financial aid we can offer based on need. If your financial needs are not met by one of the options below, please contact Jessani Johnson ( to discuss how else we might help.
