About Us

The First Tee Lehigh Valley became a Chapter of The First Tee in 2004.   The initial The First Tee Lehigh Valley facility was The First Tee at the Boys & Girls Club Easton.  In May 2006, in collaboration with The First Tee, the Bethlehem Housing Authority and the USGA, Embrace Your Dreams opened a second facility, the year-round ‘state of the art’, The First Tee Lehigh Valley at Marvine.
