The First Tee works with experts in a variety of fields to help coaches deliver programs that seamlessly weave golf and character-building activities into each lesson. Our coaches follow a philosophy centered on positively reinforcing your child’s actions and ensuring a great experience. As your child progresses through The First Tee’s programs, the activities and life lessons become more involved, helping your child build character and become even more equipped to make good choices on and off the golf course.

The First Tee publishes a Parents’ Guide with detailed info on our curriculum, approach, and much more. Learn more by visiting any of the pages summarized in the sections below.
