Community Outreach

Special Olympics of Florida

The mission of Special Olympics Florida is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people with intellectual disabilities who wish to participate, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.

Martin County Golf Course has provided  a home course during the 2015-2016 calendar year for the Special Olympics to practice and play during their golf season at no cost.  Martin County Golf course has also donated multiple items such as clubs, bags, and other golf equipment.

The First Tee of the Treasure Coast

Our mission 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.

Through after-school and in-school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference. Our research-proven programs are having a positive impact on participants, their families and their communities.

The First Tee of the Treasure Coast  conducts programming in partnership with many youth development organizations including the Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters, YMCA, the Police Athletic League and the East Stuart Community Center. The First Tee National School Program is being implemented in ten Treasure Coast elementary schools funded by the Florida Junior Golf Council license plate program.   They also offer Saturday and summer camp programs at Hammock Creek Golf Club, The Saints Golf Course, The Champions Club, Martin County GC, Fairwinds GC and the PGA Learning Center.

Martin County Golf Course provides free golf and free range balls to any First Tee participants and is a drop off location for donations to the First Tee of The Treasure Coast.  In 2016, Martin County Golf has hosted day camps in partnership with the  First Tee of the Treasure Coast and Don Law Golf Academy, we have hosted multiple day camps with the YMCA.

US Kids Golf

U.S. Kids Golf was started as a family business desiring to stay true to the mission and purpose of bringing kids into the game. Because providing the right equipment needed to be coupled with improved programs, coaching, and opportunity for competition, like other organized sports, the Foundation was started.

 

The vision of families spending time together outdoors and playing golf is our true passion, and many people throughout the golf industry have joined us in our efforts.  We are thankful for our role in giving kids the lifelong game of golf.

Today, with more than 900 tournaments organized yearly in 50+ markets, players, ages 5 to 14, learn to compete in their local community and then advance to State, Regional, and World Championships. Local Tours are designed for the beginning competitive golfer, as each event provides a fun environment where kids can develop their skills. Two-day events like our State invitational tournaments and Regional Championships are ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard and are the next step for competitive junior golfers. At each level, players may earn Green, Orange, or Blue Status in order to gain entry into more challenging events.

 

Martin County Golf Course hosted 5 US Kids tournaments in 2016 and currently have 6 more on the schedule for 2017.
