The First Tee of Massachusetts opened its doors on Cape Cod in 2007 at Hyannis Golf Course. At this site, children from the surrounding communities can take part in seasonal programs that introduce them to the game of golf and its inherent values.

Under the direction of a personable and enthusiastic staff, children participate in The First Tee Life Skills & Golf Skills curriculum. The 18-hole Hyannis Golf Course is owned and operated by the Town of Barnstable.
