About Us

The First Tee of Beaver Falls was originally formed in 1999 by a former The First Tee employee, a local dentist, Patrick A. Gallagher (Owner of PGT Trucking) and W. Richard Blackwood. (Owner of Black Hawk Golf Course)

The majority of 1999 was dedicated to demolition and driving range renovations. Between 2000 and 2002 the driving range was completed, a PAR 3 was added, a new Board of Directors was in place, and recruitment of volunteers was completed. With the addition of Life Skill equipment, implementation of new curriculum, and our Life Skill Program continually changing, our Chapter has been able to attract participants from surrounding counties.

Today, The First Tee of Beaver Falls clinics operate from the 644 Blackhawk Road, Chippewa Twp, BLACK HAWK GOLF COURSE, PAR 3 and driving range. Participants receive special offers to play the 36 hole course.

The First Tee of Beaver Falls services Pennsylvania Counties: Beaver County, Butler County, Lawrence County and Ohio Columbiana County. Children ages 4 to 17 can join The First Tee of Beaver Falls for $35.00 per clinic. The activity fee allows members to utilize the golf courses, Learning Center, and enters them into The First Tee Like Sills Program; paying for their Life Skills materials.
