First Tee — Greater Austin relies heavily on volunteer support to make our programs successful.  We offer programs for our participants year-round and have a wide range of opportunities to get involved.  Most of our golf volunteer positions do not require golf experience.  We provide the necessary training and support and our programs take place at 7 sites:

  • Harvey Penick Golf Campus in EAST Austin
  • Balcones Country Club in NORTHWEST Austin
  • Jimmy Clay Golf Course in SOUTHEAST Austin
  • Onion Creek Golf Club in SOUTH Austin
  • Pine Forest Golf Club in Bastrop
  • Point Venture Golf Club in Leander *NEW
  • TopGolf Austin by the Domain

With your help, we can maximize the First Tee Life Skills Experience for more area youth!

We’re looking for a diverse group of volunteers from the Austin metro area to help deliver our character-building programs.
