FlyingTee, Tulsa’s first golf entertainment facility, has announced it will partner with The First Tee of Tulsa, whose mission statement is “to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.”
“We’re thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this program,” says FlyingTee John Vollbrecht. “The First Tee of Tulsa has done a great job of positively impacting the lives of young Tulsans over the years by sharing important core values and life skills which are important to both golf and life.”
FlyingTee chose to build on the Riverwalk Crossing along the Arkansas River in Jenks. The three-level facility will be a place for friends and families to come together for golf, games and great food. Each of FlyingTee’s floors will feature a unique atmosphere with distinctly different restaurants. It will also offer 60 state-of-the-art hitting bays with technology that is the first of its kind in Oklahoma.
“The First Tee of Tulsa is very excited about our partnership with FlyingTee,” says Janice Gibson, director of The First Tee of Tulsa. “This will allow us to take our students to a new and highly technological golf venue where they can learn more about the game of golf, while having fun and building life skills.”
Since its inception, The First Tee of Tulsa has introduced more than 25,000 students to the game of golf, while an additional 16,500 have enrolled in classes. The program uses golf as a tool to help kids excel academically and athletically, and supports them on their path to becoming productive members of society.
“I am personally very passionate about this partnership as I have volunteered with The First Tee in the past and have witnessed how impactful the organization can be in a young person’s life.” says Vollbrecht.
