Get Golf Ready
Get Golf Ready means you will learn everything you need to know to play golf in just a few short lessons. You may not be ready for the Tour, but you will certainly build your level of comfort and confidence and will be able to go play this great game with family and friends.
Each session will focus on the various golf skills you will use while playing. In addition to learning the basics, you will be guided onto the golf course to put your skills into action in a casual, friendly setting.
Here is some of what you will learn:
- Warm up, stretching and wellness tips
- The best ways to hold the club and get ready before you take a swing
- Getting comfortable with the full swing
- Using your irons to get the ball in the air and onto the green
- Swinging your driver and the other ‘big’ clubs to hit the long shots
- Getting the ball close to the hole — chipping, pitching and other shots from short distances
- Caring for the course
- Learning the ‘lingo’, like fairway & rough, tee box & green, divot & bunker, and more
- Having fun using ‘It’s Okay Tips’ as the way to play
- Starting your play from the correct tee markers and have fun
- Helpful shortcuts to save time while you play
- Linking all that you’ve learned to play a few holes
- Tips for playing in groups, on teams and other fun ways to play
- Getting you more comfortable on the course and where to drive the cart
- Feel more confident in keeping score and golf etiquette
- More opportunities for you to come back and play golf
The First Tee Program
The First Tee Program teaches golf through the Life Skills Experience. Participants learn valuable lessons about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, how to make decisions by thinking about the possible consequences and how to define and set goals from the golf course to everyday life. Participants learn about themselves and others through a range of experiences enhancing their golf skills as well as their fundamental values for life.
All participants receive The First Tee Yardage Book so their progress can be observed as they advance through The First Tee certification levels of PLAYer, PAR, BIRDIE, EAGLE, and ACE. Each stage introduces young people to different aspects of golf and life skills.
Our program starts with the first level of certification, PLAYer. We want everyone who completes this program to have acquired basic golf skills and to be able to demonstrate certain fundamental life skill concepts. It takes most juniors at least two sessions to become certified at each level, but some do it after one. Juniors are not required to go through certification to participate but we certainly encourage it.
