2020 Golf Tournament Cancelled

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the threat it poses to public health, we've made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 ShopRite Nutmeg State Games scheduled to be hosted by the City of New Britain in June, July and August. The challenges and uncertainty that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has presented make it impossible for our organization to appropriately plan, organize and put on our numerous sporting events in a safe environment.

The First Tee of Connecticut is reaching thousands of youth each year through a variety of ways including In-School and National School Programs, Group Lessons, Squads, On-Course Team Programs and Summer Camps. Along with golf instruction, The First Tee’s Life Skills Curriculum; based on 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 introduces young people to skills associated with positive youth development.

Recognizing that the game of golf embodies these core values, The First Tee of Connecticut believes that participating in 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, 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).
