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.

Age-Based Golf Instruction

Junior golf is just part of First Tee. Through our program that strengthens character, kids will learn golf and life skills that stay with them into the rest of their lives, like:

  • Understanding and managing emotions
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Setting up step-by-step goals
  • Planning for the future
  • Appreciating diversity

Players are grouped by age, and coaches work with each player to teach and refine golf skills, providing time for on-course play.


You will be taken to the YMCA of South Hampton Roads online registration portal.

Scholarships for participation are available thanks to generous donations to the First Tee Hampton Roads annual giving campaign.
