Foundation Happenings


Our youth involves three main organizations, The Met PGA Junior Tour, Drive Chip and Putt Championship, and PGA Jr League. The Met PGA Junior Tour provides junior golfers with access to tournaments, clinics, and programs to improve their game and grow in the golf industry. The Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a nationwide junior golf development competition. PGA Junior League is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and under to learn and enjoy the game of golf.


Met PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), is an adaptive golf program offered free of charge by PGA Professionals that utilizes golf as a rehabilitation tool to improve our veterans' quality of life by enhancing their mental, social, physical, and emotional well-being. The program is open to all veterans with an emphasis on serving those with physical and emotional disabilities who would benefit the most from such an initiative.



The First Tee of Metropolitan New York was founded in 2001 at Mosholu Golf Course in the Bronx. We strive to provide resources, professional expertise and programs to make golf accessible to all segments of the population through various community outreach programs such as: Golf-in-Schools, PSAL, and Girls Golf and FORE. Our PSAL program pairs PGA Professionals with 40 inner-city school teams to enhance their knowledge and skill level and has over 350 kids participating.
