The First Tee Golf Lesson Details     2018 BROCHURE

Tiny Tots - Age 4-5

This is a wonderful class for young juniors to learn about the very basics of golf such as grip, stance, and aim. We will be spending time on the putting and chipping green and practice range, but most importantly we will be having lots of fun. Participants will learn some introductory life skills such as respect for the game of golf. One parent/guardian must attend the first class. Clubs are available if needed.


Bogey Level - Age 5-7

In the Bogey classes, students are taught the basics of golf in a fun and enjoyable format. The fundamentals of the grip, stance, posture and swing are taught in a way students can understand. The main areas of focus for the Bogey Level are an introduction of the full swing, chipping and putting. The First Tee life skills taught in the Bogey Level focus on Honesty, Respect, and Sportsmanship. Lessons are 40 minutes in length with dates/days varying depending on class.


Par Level - Age 8-12

Students in the Par classes will build upon the basics taught at the Bogey Level. The fundamentals of the golf swing will continue to be stressed, with the goal of creating a more consistent swing. Lessons at the Par Level will again focus on the full swing, chipping and putting. The First Tee life skills taught in the par level focus on Integrity, Confidence, Responsibility, and Courtesy. These lessons are 45 minutes in length with dates/days varying depending on class.


Birdie Level - Age 12-17

Students in the Birdie Level will continue to build upon the solid foundation of fundamentals taught in the Bogey and Par classes. Lessons will continue to cover the long and short game while new topics such as swing plane and course management will be introduced. We will touch on all 9 core values in the Birdie level, with a focus on Perseverance and Judgement. These lessons are 45 minutes in length with dates/days varying depending on class.
