Please help support our 2020 annual golf fundraiser on Monday, April 20, 2020! We have a wonderful event planned, which features a “scramble” format to be held at the world-class TPC Jasna Polana in Princeton, NJ. All proceeds will go directly toward supporting junior golf and life skills programming for young people and administered by The First Tee of Greater Trenton. Immediately following golf will be a networking cocktail reception, dinner, and silent auction.

Our Strategic Vision – The First Tee of Greater Trenton provides area youth with alternative and accessible forums for positive character development. We recognize that golf is an ideal vehicle to encourage this type of development, offering essential values including courtesy, respect, judgment, responsibility, confidence, honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and perseverance. More importantly, The First Tee of Greater Trenton fulfills this need in an educational environment that is challenging, exciting, enjoyable and continuous throughout the year.
