A unique way for corporations to become involved with First Tee is to host a corporate outing with First Tee participants at one of our three facilities. Employees interact with participants in a fun and relaxed environment while competing in several different golf skills challenges.
Corporations can also host participants at their offices. These can be customized to each company and are a great way to expose our participants to different companies, industries, and job functions, while also allowing a number of employees to engage with First Tee – San Francisco.
Employees can get involved with First Tee – San Francisco through direct service with our participants. We have programming throughout the year at three different facilities in San Francisco which allows for maximum flexibility. Volunteers work directly with participants as they go through the First Tee lesson and help facilitate the lesson of that week. Although some background in golf is helpful, it is not necessary and is a great way for employees to form a meaningful relationship with our amazing participants.
There are numerous opportunities for involvement with First Tee – San Francisco golf tournament. Held annually on Columbus Day at TPC Harding Park, it is a great day on a championship course filled with camaraderie, food, and friendship and a great way to entertain clients, meet participants, and support First Tee – San Francisco. We have a number of different sponsorship levels and can work with you to find the best fit.
