"It's not just about golf," First Tee founder D'Shawn Johnson told us. "It's about the nine core values that we teach youth: honesty, integrity, respect, perseverance... and that carries not just on the golf course but throughout their life."

First Tee is an eight-week program. They play at Shawnee Park.
