The Columbus State Bridgeview Golf Course is pleased to be home to the First Tee of Columbus (TFTC).

The First Tee of Columbus is a nonprofit organization operating under Columbus State Community College as a chapter of The First Tee. TFTC is committed to increasing the number of youth exposed to the game of golf by providing an affordable and accessible environment to learn and play the game.

Using an established Life Skills curriculum and PGA golf instruction, TFTC is dedicated to helping shape and develop the lives of youth by teaching values inherent to the game of golf; such as honesty, integrity, respect, confidence, sportsmanship, judgment, responsibility, courtesy, and perseverance.

TFTC believes that while it is very beneficial to introduce young people to the game of golf, it is more important to assist them in developing the personal and social skills that will benefit them in their future lives, golf related or not. The Life Skills component is used to mentor youth and teach youngsters the value of self-reliance, self-control and the ability to set and achieve goals. TFTC is dedicated to providing a platform that encourages and produces success.
