2020 PROGRAMMING 

Winter Mini Series

Thank you to all who participated!

Spring Session

Given the recent decree from Governor Inslee, and the growing concern surrounding COVID-19, we have decided it is best to cancel our Spring Programming. As much as we want to see all of our First Tee participants out on the golf course, the safety and health of our youth, coaches, volunteers, and community members is our number one priority and we feel it is in everyone’s best interest that we cancel programming.

While we may not be on a golf course during this time we are dedicated to bringing First Tee curriculum, tips, and tricks to you this spring! Follow along with us on our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter) as we provide a virtual First Tee experience during our six-week spring programming session. We will feature videos from PGA Tour players, First Tee participants, volunteers, coaches, alumni, and many more. These videos will highlight at-home drills you can do to stay in the golfing spirit, ways to incorporate our Nine Core Values into your new daily routines, and fun facts about our organization and the amazing people who help us impact our youth.
