The United States Golf Association (USGA) is continuing its longtime commitment to The First Tee through the USGA Player For Life chapter awards, which recognize and reward chapters that are achieving significant results by retaining and progressing participants in the program, providing participants with a variety of playing opportunities and utilizing different golf facilities for their playing and learning experiences.

The First Tee of Benton Harbor has been selected as a recipient of the USGA Player for Life Grant. This year, 35 chapters were selected to receive grant funds based on their chapter metrics (ZONE, number of program locations, number of registered participants) and their portfolio of non-chapter playing opportunities.

This grant will help further our mission to positively impact the lives of our local youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote future potential through the game of golf.
