The First Tee
The First Tee's mission is to positively impact the lives of Atlanta’s young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. The First Tee is a World Golf Foundation initiative that Paradies has been involved with since its inception in 1997.
In the past 10 years, it has grown to over 260 facilities in 47 states. Paradies has been a major sponsor of the First Tee Invitational at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia, for the past three years, and looks forward to increasing its sponsorship through various future events benefiting the First Tee and other charities.
