Making a difference

First Tee is reliant upon charitable contributions to carry out our mission and is grateful to receive widespread support from those in the golf industry and beyond. A fundamental strength of The First Tee is the direct support it receives from some of the game’s most respected and influential organizations. Their leadership has inspired others to embrace the mission of The First Tee.

First Tee – Greater Topeka is supported by local businesses, foundations, grants and caring individuals from our very own community. We take pride in being supported by the very people we wish to serve in our program. Below are some of the entities that are proud partners of Topeka’s First Tee chapter:

GreatLIFE Topeka – Topeka’s premiere fitness, golf, family fun and wellness organization, offering 18 locations in the Greater Topeka area to serve many of your needs. Their state-of-the-art fitness facilities, aquatics, yoga & fitness classes and built in trainers makes this fitness membership the most comprehensive you can get. Their golf courses allow beginners to be able to succeed, while also offering challenges for the more experienced players. We would not be able to do what we do as a program without GreatLIFE’s help.

Dr. Ekwensi & Angela Griffith, of New Health Kansas – As the Founder’s of one of Topeka’s best kept secrets, the Griffith’s understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They also understand that no journey is done alone, so that’s why they supported our efforts to get the best people involved in coaching and volunteering for our programs. Without a solid team of people being there for our participants, we wouldn’t be able to give the kind of Game Changing experience that First Tee is known for! Thank you so very much for your support!

8 Iron Therapy – 8 Iron Therapy is our 2022 winter program location and an avid community supporter. This is an indoor golf facility with 3 swing bays featuring E6 simulators, and is your opportunity to lower not only your handicap but also your anxiety! Get your golf fix regardless of the time of year or the weather. Need group therapy? Book a foursome and play the same courses the pros play! Golf. Year Round.

I-70 Self Storage, Inc. – One of Topeka’s premier storage locations, I-70 Self Storage is convenient, safe and affordable for all of your storage needs. With various sizes of traditional spaces, as well as climate-controlled spaces, they can take care of all of your storage requirements. Having every type of golf equipment in stock for any participants who does not already have it, is one thing that makes our program special. That equipment takes up a lot of space, and we couldn’t that without special partners like I-70 Self Storage!

Budget Blinds – Locally-owned by fabulous community supporters, Budget Blinds in Topeka offers the best place for any window treatment project, big or small. They are backed by the largest provider of custom window coverings in North America, which means you get a quality product at a price you can afford. We are extremely thankful for the various ways their team supports our mission.
