The First Tee of Idaho
September 2, 2010

First Tee had an event open to the public to introduce themselves to parents and kids in the community. We took our 11 year old son to take a look. He was given a set of Golf Clubs and received help through the Golf course, and then we were provided an amazing BBQ lunch. We signed up for lessons and Taren learned some great life lessons. He understood it was important to be on time and respectful. He met some great friends and he certainly gained a better attitude and learned to enjoy the game which he will carry through his lifetime. Thanks First Tee!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my son's attitude and respect for the game and in his daily interactions with kids and adults.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand to provide lessons at other courses in the valley.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The ability to get my son involved without the high cost we couldn't afford through Golf Courses in the valley.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fantastic, enthusiastic, and ready to spend some time teaching my child some great lessons in life and responsibility.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring a lot of children to a game that they can carry with them through their life while building their character. They could expose a game that can be too expensive to low income families and allow all children an equal opportunity to the sport.

Ways to make it better...

The Golf courses were a little closer to our location.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The high cost of equipment and participation of expensive golf courses.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Weekend options would be a fantastic addition to the schedule!
