The First Tee of Connecticut is reaching thousands of youth each year through a variety of programs including In-School Instruction, the National School Program, Group Lessons, Squads and Teams and Summer Camps. Along with golf instruction, The First Tee's Life Skills curriculum based on a set of Nine Core Values; Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Courtesy, Judgment, Confidence, Responsibility and Perseverance and Nine Healthy Habits; Energy, Play, Safety, Vision, Mind, Family, Friends, School and Community.

Recognizing that the game of golf embodies these core values, The First Tee of Connecticut believes that participating in these programs will improve the lives of those who embrace the game’s traditions and values. The First Tee of Connecticut is an initiative of the Connecticut Golf Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization. The Connecticut Golf Foundation was created to expose golf to underprivileged youth who might not normally have access to the game. The driving force behind the Connecticut Golf Foundation’s creation in 1997 was the Connecticut State Golf Association (CSGA).

A separate organization, The First Tee of Hartford, began operations in 1999 with the same basic goals as the Connecticut Golf Foundation. Recognizing the need to maximize the effectiveness of both programs, the Connecticut Golf Foundation formally merged operations with The First Tee of Hartford in May of 2004. The Boards and staff of the two organizations combined into a single organization publicly named The First Tee of Connecticut. The First Tee of Connecticut has a volunteer Board of Directors with diverse representation from throughout Connecticut. In 2012 The First Tee of Connecticut introduced the game of golf to over 40,000 young people through programs in their schools or communities and had over 1,300 young people enroll in certifying programs at golf facilities across the state.
