The Tucson community boasts a long and successful history in Junior Golf. The Tucson Conquistadores was considered a pioneer in the development of Junior Golf. The group partnered with the City of Tucson and volunteer golf professionals in the 1960s to provide youngsters free golf instruction and course privileges at municipal courses. The First Tee of Tucson has taken this concept leaps forward.

The Tucson program began in 2005. Now children from every corner of the community, especially disadvantaged children, can be recruited and their needs accommodated. Tucson Conquistadores’ staff provides proven mentoring and life skills programs developed by The First Tee. The core principles of The First Tee program are being learned by parcipants through the fun and challenges of game of golf, and by living these principles in their everyday lives.

The home of The First Tee of Tucson is at the City of Tucson’s Trini Alvarez-El Rio Golf Course. The course enjoyed a $2.9 million renovation effort as the result of a partnership between the City, Tucson Conquistadores, and The First Tee Program™ of the World Golf Foundation, Inc. The Tucson Conquistadores opened The First Tee of Tucson clubhouse and learning center in 2008.

The First Tee is a division of the World Golf Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the World Golf Championships - Accenture Match Play Championship will benefit The First Tee of Tucson. The program in Tucson is also funded and operated by the Tucson Conquistadores and with the support of volunteers and donations made to the nonprofit Conquistadores Youth Golf Fund (see board of directors).
