The First Tee of the Upstate
The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference.
The purpose of the South Carolina Junior Golf Association is to perpetuate the history and traditions of the ancient game of golf through its members, and with an active outreach to the youth of our state.
Established in 1990 by community leaders with a love for the game and a commitment to passing on golf’s heritage to the youth of South Carolina, the SCJGA is committed to meeting the needs of all young people in the state and providing playing opportunities to boys and girls that might not otherwise have the chance to experience golf and its many benefits.
Golf can and does shape the lives of kids throughout South Carolina. It promotes healthy competition, fosters a drive to succeed, and teaches many lessons of life. Through the contributions of golfers, courses and businesses across the state, the SCJGA provides opportunities, builds character, and shapes lives.
In 2008, the SCJGA was named the top regional junior golf association in the country by Golf Digest magazine.
