GOLF IS FUN. HERE’S WHY

Categories: Talk Story
The First Tee coaches make golf fun through games and activities such as golf Tic-Tac-Toe

5 WAYS WE MAKE GOLF FUN

1. FRIENDS & SOCIAL EXPERIENCES

Kids participate as a class where they meet others from all walks of life. They’re even taught how to properly introduce themselves to each other to help break down barriers and start having fun together! Many participants find lifelong friends [like alumni Kyle DiGiacobbe and Beau Zastrow] through The First Tee.

2. WE’RE OUTSIDE

It’s rare you’ll find us in the classroom. We are in the business of doing, not telling. Participants are taught the game of golf through experience based learning, out on the golf course or driving range. The First Tee life skills, Nine Core Values or Nine Healthy Habits are taught through games and activities. Speaking of games….

3. CREATIVE GAMES

Ever heard of zoo golf or golf tic-tac-toe? You probably have if you’re involved with The First Tee! Our coaches come up with fun and exciting games to introduce golf concepts to kids. In fact, you’ll often see foam noodles and hula hoops during a lesson.

4. FUN GOLF COACHES

73% of youth stated their “enjoyment of the experience, confidence in golf ability and support of coaches/friends” as the top three reasons for staying in the program.

Our coaches are fun! They care about kids and through required training through our Coach Program,  they understand how to keep kids attention. Our golf coaches are experts in making young people feel comfortable and assure they have a positive, non-intimidating experience.

5. WE MAKE THE GAME LESS INTIMIDATING

We teach participants the 3 tips for having fun:

  1. Be patient
  2. Be positive
  3. Ask for help
