The First Tee of Cleveland believes in young people. Today, the need for quality youth character development programs is critical. The First Tee’s curriculum is proven to be part of the solution to challenges facing today’s youth. Through the game of golf, we teach young people valuable life skills including problem solving, managing time, controlling emotions, making friends with diverse peers and improving relationships. Our character education helps young people prepare for success in school and in life!

In 2018, The First Tee of Cleveland’s facility locations in Newburgh Heights, Euclid, Macedonia and Olmsted Township served over 1,600 youth, impacted over a thousand additional lives through our Outreach programs, and reached thousands more through our National Schools Programs. We go to where the kids are. No child who wants to embrace our program is ever turned away for financial reasons.

To raise money, we are conducting a GolfMania fundraiser.  We ensure that The First Tee of Cleveland has at least one high-score winner and one low-score winner in each of the four GolfMania contests.

GolfMania is an exciting and engaging sweepstakes that gives participants the chance to win prize money during each of professional golf’s 4 major championship events. For only $20, one sweepstakes game card contains 5 random golfers for each of the four majors – a different set for each tournament. No two game cards have the same set of 5 golfers in any given tournament.   With your ticket, you can win up to $400 in each of golf’s 4 major championship tournaments based on the golfers on your game card.  Each card gives you 4 chances to win!

Winning game cards are determined based on the total combined score of the 5 golfers in each tournament.  To play, simply add up the total strokes by all the golfers on your card throughout each tournament • The 31 best scoring game cards, and the 3 worst scoring game cards, all win prizes in each contest!
