Why Golf?

Experiences are our greatest teacher. First Tee believes in developing the ones that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see kids’ build self confidence, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.

What We Do

Here at First Tee – Pittsburgh, we use golf to teach our participants about Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Goal Setting, and much more.  We like to say that we are “Building Game Changers”.

We offer 90 minute Group Golf Clinics that are once per week for 6 weeks each.  We offer these 6-week sessions 3 times per year (Spring, Summer, Fall) at many locations around the area. We also offer Indoor programs 3 times per year during the cold months. These are typically 75 minutes long and 5 weeks in duration.

Our classes are now AGE-BASED. That means participants will sign-up for classes based on their AGE, not their ability. Research shows that most kids prefer to be with their friends during classes, instead of being placed in classes based on their skill level. Our age levels will be:

5 & 6 year olds

7 to 10 year olds

10 to 13 year olds

13 to 18 year olds

First Tee – Pittsburgh’s mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
