In early 2001, the nonprofit Del Rio C.C. Foundation began extensive study of The First Tee in association with the City of Modesto. In October of 2003 after two years of planning and community networking, The First Tee of Central Valley (TFTCV) Chapter was approved by the National The First Tee to be administered and run by the DRCC Foundation.
In partnership with the City of Modesto, TFTCV gained steady golf course access. Through the collaborative efforts with many other Stanislaus County youth service organizations, The First Tee offers the outreach programming each year at DRIVE after school sites throughout Stanislaus County and through regularly scheduled clinics at Modesto’s Municipal Golf Course in early spring through the late fall.
The mission of Del Rio CC Foundation and its The First Tee of Central Valley (TFTCV) is to positively impact the lives of Central Valley youth (ages 5-17) by providing educational programs that ensure the mastery of life skills and character-development through the game of golf.
The DRCC Foundation Board meets frequently to administer, guide and plan for the future of The First Tee of Central Valley as organization within The First Tee network of over 168 chapters worldwide.
