The First Tee of St. Petersburg is the leading youth development in the area using golf as a vehicle to help teach life skills. The organization has been providing youth mentoring since 2005, and strives to provide young people of all backgrounds with an opportunity to develop strong character, enhance life values and support education through golf.
Because there was a need to deliver mentoring programs and scholarships for youths age 6 -18 in St. Petersburg, the location was based on providing all youths access to golf that would teach core values and life skills.
The First Tee of St. Petersburg has plans to build 3000 square foot Mentoring Center at Twin Brooks Golf Course located at 3800 – 22nd Avenue South. This safe home base will allow the organization to expand programming and solidify the future for the youths at The First Tee of St. Petersburg.
