Clubs 4 Kids

Since opening, we have given hundreds of FREE sets of golf clubs to kids thanks to many generous donations. This would not have been a success if it weren’t for the countless hours spent by volunteers of The First Tee of Fort Smith cleaning and repairing donated golf clubs and the donations of sets by manufacturers.
