As of 2016, The First Tee of Contra Costa has been able to provide our Life Skill experience to over 8,000 young people. Our sessions take place four times a year (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall). The cost per session is about $100 per student. We have never turned away a participant because of a low income; instead we offer scholarships and assistance to families who cannot afford it. While donations of any amount are very appreciated, your donation of $99 will ensure that we can provide a scholarship for one young player for one session; while a donation of $350 will allows us to provide a scholarship for one young player for an entire year!


We graciously accept gently used or new golf equipment that meet the following guidelines. We have arranged with Diablo Creek Golf Course for all equipment donations to be dropped off at their site. They are able to give you a charitable donation form for your donation. If this arrangement does not work for you, please contact our office and we can see if there is another way to accommodate your generosity.
