COVID-19 Updates, Online Engagement

COVID-19 is greatly impacting our community and our personal and professional lives. We know this is a time of tremendous challenge and we recognize the need to continue to engage with the most important partners in the First Tee of Metro Atlanta community – you, our participants and members.


PROGRAM SUSPENSION: In continued compliance with federal, state, local and public health officials directives, all FTMA programming (Life Skills Experience, NSP & DRIVE) will remain suspended. We will also comply with the directive’s language that this suspension will remain in effect until further notice, once COVID-19 safety guidelines permit.

ONLINE ENGAGEMENT: During this hiatus, we still want to see the #FacesofFTMA! Send us a picture, short video, boomerang clip or quote. Show us how you are spending your “physically distant” days. Through this difficult time, let’s do our best to stay engaged and connected. Content can be funny, serious, or anything in between. Please send your content to admin@thefirstteeatlanta.org or info@thefirstteeatlanta.org or post it on your favorite social media channel, tag us and include the #FacesofFTMA.

Please take great care of yourself and your loved ones – nothing is more important than your health and safety.
