Kids learn best when they are having fun. Whether it is learning to be honest while keeping score, perseverance when losing, or good judgment while making the play, lessons learned while laughing stick long after the game is done.

The First Tee is where it all happens. Through the game of golf, youth ages 7-18 years learn the fundamental skills of the game as well as life-enhancing values. Classes led by qualified First Tee coaches help kids learn nine core values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment. It is values like these that transfer to other aspects of life and help each young person achieve success in school, friendships and-eventually-in the workforce and their own families.
