The First Tee
Thanks to the tournament volunteers and the commitment of our Proud Partners, The Coca-Cola Company and Southern Company, the 2016 TOUR Championship made contributions totaling over $2.2 million to charities, which primarily benefit the East Lake Foundation and The First Tee. Since 1998, the TOUR Championship has donated over $26 million to charity, both locally and nationwide. East Lake has been the site of eleven TOUR Championships and is now the permanent home to this season-ending event of the PGA TOUR season.
The First Tee is a World Golf Foundation initiative dedicated to providing young people of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. The intent is to offer opportunities for improvement in the quality of life and create a platform where children can increase their potential for success.
