pecan valley (River) golf course

7 AM – 7 PM

The Annual Golf-A-Thon sponsored by the Angela Stanford Foundation and benefiting The First Tee of Fort Worth will take place on Friday, May 5th at Pecan Valley Golf Course in Fort Worth.

Up to 36 special guests or relay teams will commence play at 7 AM and play until 7 PM! Each Golf-A-Thon Participant or relay team is responsible for raising at least $1,000 via per-hole or flat pledges, but their ultimate goal is to play as many holes as possible during that twelve hour period and to help our team raise more than $150,000 in necessary funds for The First Tee of Fort Worth.

The Golf-A-Thon is easy to enter, rewarding and the funds raised allow us to bring “the game that lasts a lifetime” to children in our community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the mission of The First Tee of Fort Worth and why should my friends support it through me?

The mission of The First Tee of Fort Worth is to impact the lives of all young people by providing participation in The First Tee’s Life Skills Curriculum and its Nine Core Values through the game of golf, thereby instilling life enhancing values that encourage leadership, build character, foster community service and promote wellness. It’s through these programs that we were able to work with more than 35,000 children in 2016, and these participants learn valuable lessons about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, how to make decisions, how to define and set goals and how to transfer The First Tee’s Nine Core Values of Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Responsibility, Confidence, Courtesy, Judgement and Perseverance from the golf course to everyday life.

Does my score matter?

No way! Who wants to slow down, count, and then write a score on a scorecard? Remember our goal is to play fast, so you’re only responsible for keeping track of the number of holes you play (and we have a team to help you!).

I want to play, but can’t be there all day. Do you have an option for me?

Absolutely! In an effort to balance golf and life, and promote great comradery, our participants are welcome to form a “relay team” of players so that the day can be divided up to fit their schedule.
