safest and most comfortable

environment. It is truly a

first-class facility, doing great

work to prepare the students

to lead productive lives.

The First Tee of Lake Erie

piloted a golf training program

last summer for Els for Autism.

The Els Foundation is also

working to implement the

program around the country

in conjunction with existing

First Tee chapters. The

local program was held at

Crosswinds Golf Club in

Perrysburg and was taught by

three local coaches, who had

received training from the staff

at Els Center for Excellence last

June. The program works with

basic golf principles to help

teach and improve social and

motor skills, two of the biggest

challenges with individuals

with autism. 

The Els family has taken a

stance to be a driving force

behind treatment and care for

children with autism all over

the country.  With the odds

of being born with autism

trending upwards, these types

of services will become more

and more important.

The First Tee of Lake Erie is

honored to partner with Els

for Autism and play a part in

helping children with autism

in Northwest Ohio and

Southeast Michigan. Our staff

and board are passionate

about growing our reach into

the future and continuing

to offer opportunities to all

children in our community.
