What to do with your golf equipment?

Have a bunch of golf equipment packed in the corner of your garage?  Purchased a new set of clubs and do not know what to do with your old set?  Donating equipment is another way to help support our chapter. Convert your old, unwanted golf equipment into a cash donation!  The cash donation will feed back into our programs allowing us to purchase junior sized golf equipment and assist in training our coaches and volunteers.  When we do not turn your golf clubs into a cash donation it is because we have identified a participant who is (a) in need of a set of golf clubs and (b) who can fit your clubs in which case the donated clubs are simply passed along to that child.

what donations will you take?

We take just about anything that will help us provide a better experience and a quality lesson for our participants.  Which means, if the equipment is broken, severely out of date, or you wouldn’t use it to make a birdie; then chances are there isn’t much we can do with it.  Check out a partner of The First Tee’s, 2nd Swing, who has provided an inventory list of acceptable donations.

Option #1:

Using the link above or approval by a staff member of The First Tee of the Golden Isles please drop off the equipment you wish to donate at our main office located at 5445 Frederica Rd., St. Simons Island, GA 31522.  If that is not an option then check with your local course if you can leave the equipment behind for pick up.  Please make sure the equipment is cleaned and usable.

option #2:

With the 2nd Swing Club Donation Program, you can put any of your old equipment to great use and make a huge impact while keeping our storage capacity low. The value of your used clubs and equipment is sent to The First Tee of the Golden Isles as a cash donation.  See below:
