Little Linksters

Children ages 4-6 are introduced to First Tee’s Life Skills Curriculum. This 4-class, introductory level course is offered in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Age-appropriate equipment and activity-based lessons engage these young golfers, building their interest for the game of golf. Most importantly, they will learn First Tee Code of Conduct: Respect for Self, Respect for Others, and Respect For Surroundings.
