Steve Hogan Memorial Golf Event - Register Today!

The 6th Annual Steve Hogan Memorial Golf Event will be held again at Shoreline Golf Course on Friday, September 25 with check-in occurring at 11:00 AM and shotgun start at 12:00 noon.   Thanks to a full field of golf participants and other donations received during previous year's events, over $20,000 is typically raised for the Hogan's Junior Golf Heroes Foundation - The First Tee of Omaha during this event.   All proceeds from the annual event are used to support and enhance the Golf and Life Skills youth development programming that is carried out at area golf course facilities, in schools, and in partnership with other youth service providers.  Registration will be open until September 15 or until the event is full.  To register for this year's event, please click here.

Summer program participants enjoy Golf and Life Skills program!

Youth from all walks of life in greater Omaha enjoyed Golf and Life Skills programming again this summer.  Working in partnership with the City of Omaha Parks and Recreation Golf Division, The First Tee of Omaha staff and coaches were able to offer summer programming at multiple golf course sites. Hundreds of area youth were positively impacted again this year.  Special thanks to all the program participants, parents, coaches, volunteers, and donors for another fun summer program.  Participating youth received yardage books, bag tags and t-shirts again this year!  Coach Brandi is pictured here with 3 active participants at the Steve Hogan GC programming site at Miller Park.

Coaches, Program Alumni and Youth Team Up at Great Plains Black History Museum event!

Two teams of coaches, alumni and active youth participants enjoyed a day of golf at the Great Plains Black History Museum golf outing. For two of the youth involved, this was their first experience competing in an 18 hole golf event so a very exciting day. Special thanks to the event organizers and sponsors who made this happen!
