The chapter has 15 program locations in the region, and supports children as young as 3 until they reach college. With more than 30 years of history, the chapter has touched the lives of countless young people in the Sacramento area, instilling The First Tee Nine Core Values™ (Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, Responsibility, Perseverance, Courtesy and Judgment) and The First Tee Nine Healthy Habits™ (Energy, Play, Safety, Vision, Mind, Family, Friends, School, and Community).

The First Tee of Greater Sacramento provides programs designed for specific skill levels that allow young people to advance toward greater mastery of golf. But the central purpose extends far beyond hitting a ball onto a green and into the hole. It’s well established rules of etiquette and emphasis on sportsmanship-like conduct along with the high-level of hand-eye coordination required to play competently, provides an ideal backdrop to practicing self-discipline, setting goals and learning to respect others.
