The First Tee of Connecticut is grateful for the generosity of individual donors and corporate sponsors who dedicate a portion (and in many cases, all) of the net proceeds they raise at golf tournaments and other fundraisers to The First Tee of Connecticut. These events are known as “Benefactor” or “Third Party” events and they are a tremendous help to us in keeping our program fees affordable for everyone ($7-$9 per lesson, in most locations).

  • The 6th Annual Gary Gatzen Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at Shuttle Meadow Country Club in Kensington on August 24th to honor the memory of the late Gary Gatzen.
  • The Max Classic at Hartford Country Club in Hartford – Date TBA.
