What is the cost?

Everyone is invited to participate in First Tee, regardless of income level or financial means.

The full fee is $120 per session. You are welcome to pay an amount that best suits you in the upcoming session. During the registration process, you will have the opportunity to request financial aid for any percentage of your programming fee. We approve 100% of requests.

We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to play and without financial burden. The option is yours each session. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


How do I register?

To sign up for the program, please visit the Schedule & Registration page, where you will find the schedule of upcoming sessions and registration dates.

Classes fill quickly, so mark your calendar for upcoming registration dates. Select the best available option, and if your first choice is not available, be sure to submit a waiting list request.

Once you have created an account, the process only takes a few minutes each subsequent session. Each participant may enroll in one class per session, but there are plenty of other opportunities for practice and play outside of scheduled class time.


Does my child need golf clubs?

All equipment is provided, but if your child has his/her own clubs, you are encouraged to bring them.


What should participants bring to class?

All equipment is provided, but it is important to come to class well-rested, nourished, and wearing appropriate clothing. We spend the majority of class time outdoors, so proper footwear and outerwear is a necessity. Traditional golf attire is not required, although players are welcome to wear collared shirts. Most players will be comfortable in athletic clothing, including tennis shoes or even rain boots on wet days. No sandals, flip-flops or open-toed shoes are allowed.


What age & ability does the program include?

All young people between the ages of 7 and 18 are encouraged to enroll, regardless of experience, skill, or maturity level. Classes are broken up by age.

Ages 7-9

Participants learn how to play the game of golf with special emphasis on learning the basics of golf, enhancing their golf skills, focusing on the First Tee Code of Conduct, and learning the First Tee Nine Core Values. These interpersonal and self-management skills will help participants develop much more than their golf games.

Ages 10-11

Participants learn how to play the game of golf with special emphasis on learning the basics of golf or enhancing their already learned golf skills. Participants are introduced to life skills that will help them both on and off the golf course. Coaches assist participants in acquiring several self-management techniques and interpersonal skills that will help them in managing their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to perform at their best both on and off the golf course.

Ages 12-13

Participants learn how to play the game of golf with special emphasis on learning the basics of golf or enhancing their already learned golf skills. Participants have the opportunity to learn how to set and pursue their own goals. This will provide participants with a greater sense of purpose, direction, and motivation in their lives.

Ages 14-18

Participants learn how to play the game of golf with special emphasis on learning the basics of golf or enhancing their already learned golf skills. Participants will learn about wellness, diversity, building go-to teams, and conflict management.
