The First Tee of Idaho utilizes the game of golf to teach kids (Ages 7-18) essential character traits and valuable life skills. Our program hinges on The First Tee 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
Decision Making Skills
Goal Setting
Communication Skills
Proper Etiquette on and off the golf course.
Conflict Resolution
AND MUCH MORE!!!
