First Tee—Central Carolina utilizes the game of golf to teach kids (Ages 7-18) essential character traits and valuable life skills. Our program hinges on First Tee's Code of Conduct: Respect for Myself, Others, and Surroundings. Using this as our cornerstone, kids participate in exciting and creative golf games that teach:
Core Values Healthy Habits Life Skills AND MUCH MORE…
A majority of classes are held once-a-week (after school), during the Spring and Fall seasons, from 4:30 pm- 6:00 pm for 8 consecutive weeks. We have convenient locations in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Jamestown, High Point, Burlington, Lexington, Salisbury, Asheville, and Hendersonville. In addition to after school classes, during the summer months we offer camps, one day clinics, tournaments and more.
All participants, regardless of age or golf skill start at the PLAYer (introduction) Level. Our chapter also has a program specifically created for Girls interested in learning the game of golf, as well as a teen program designed for 12 years and up who are typically either new the game or just getting started. From there, participants can advance to higher levels (Par, Birdie, Eagle and Ace) based on their: age, successful completion of assessments, and the demonstration of Life Skills and Golf Skills covered throughout the program.
