About Us

We enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.

About Our Facility:

Learning Center

First Tee – Central Arkansas is located in the city of Little Rock, AR. Our golf course features a 9-hole Regulation Course, with yardage ranging from 2,198 yards to 3,428 yards; and a 9-hole Par-3 Course, with yardage ranging from 48 yards to 113 yards.

Since 2001, the 16-acre driving range has been ranked in the Top 100 Driving Ranges for public facilities. Today, the State of Arkansas has two First Tee Chapters – Little Rock and Lowell, all sharing in the mission of The First Tee.

Who We Serve:

For $300, children aged 5 to 17 are provided with year around access to a state-of-the-art facility and our Life Skills Experience. Our Life Skills Experience provides age-appropriate programming that introduce the Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits. The Nine Core Values include honesty, integrity, respect, responsibility, courtesy, sportsmanship, confidence, judgment and perseverance. These values are essential for young people to make positive choices and overcome challenges across all areas of their lives. Additionally, concepts around healthy choices reinforce the importance of physical, social and emotional wellness.

How We Operate:

Although the Stephens family donated the initial funds, we have been on our own financially for several years. Our programs and facility require $750,000 per year. We rely on the financial support of both individuals and companies in our community. We appreciate any time or money you have to give.
