Planned Giving:

The roots of golf can be traced back to Scotland in 1457. Our youth development organization has continued the traditions of the game for over 25 years in the Treasure Coast. The First Tee – Treasure Coast has evolved into a major youth development organization golf courses all throughout the county. Founded by George McGrory (“Mr. Mac”), our non-profit organization, The Children’s Golf Foundation, Inc. began serving young people with disabilities in 1988.

Our chapter of  First Tee was established with the support of the Michael B. Finnegan Foundation, the PGA of America and The Honda Classic. Our service area includes all of St. Lucie and Martin Counties, which encompasses over 300,000 young people under the age of eighteen. Our chapter is one of over 160 throughout the world and one of 15 chapters in the state of Florida. Our programs are taught by PGA and LPGA Coaches trained by The First Tee.

Vehicle License Plate Program

Martin and St. Lucie County golfers have no doubt taken notice of the “Golf Capital of the World” license plate proudly displayed on thousands of local automobiles. Many golfers do not know that the benefitting charity of this license plate is junior golf.

Created in 2002 by the Dade Amateur Golf Association, the Florida Junior Golf Council was formed for the benefit of Florida’s junior golf programs. Through the efforts of the late Charlie DeLucca, the “Golf Capital of the World” license plate was passed into law by the Florida legislature and Governor Jeb Bush. All revenue generated supports junior golf programs. To date, over $8.7 million has been distributed to support junior golf.
