Why Golf?

Experiences are our greatest teacher. First Tee believes in developing the ones that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see kids’ build self confidence, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.

On the Golf Course

Junior golf is just part of First Tee. Through our program that strengthens character, kids will learn life skills that stay with them into the rest of their lives, like:

  • Understanding and managing emotions
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Setting up step-by-step goals
  • Planning for the future
  • Appreciating diversity

Age Based Programmming

Participants progress through the program by participating in acitvities that help develop life skills and golf skills in a “seamless” approach. We have found that this is best achieved when participants interact with peers that are within their own age group. Age groups are as follows:

  • 7-9
  • 10-11
  • 12-13
  • 14 and up
  • First Tee 9-core values are part of the curriculum at all age groups.
