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.

The Inland Northwest Golf Foundation, a tax-exempt 501c(3) organization, is the parent of First Tee – Inland Northwest chapter based in Spokane, WA. In the Spring of 2011 we began implementing programming consistent with a furtherance of the mission and purpose of The First Tee. We have created a network of community leadership & organizations from diverse groups who have made a commitment to The First Tee of the Inland Northwest.

Today, The First Tee of the Inland Northwest conducts operations and programming from our home course, The Creek at Qualchan Golf Course. Our facilities provide use of a complete practice area including a private access driving range, chipping facility and putting greens.

Classes are offered to young people from ages 7 to 17. The nominal fee for each session includes all instruction and use of the driving range, chipping and putting facilities during classes. Discounts are offered for family use. Financial aid is available upon request. No child will be ever be turned away from our programs due to inability to pay.
