From age 7 through 17, youth progress through levels by demonstrating The First Tee Nine Core Values, life and golf skills as well as passing an assessment. All participants regardless of age start at the PLAYer level.

  • TARGET: Ideal for children who are new to golf or The First Tee Program. In the TARGET level participants will use each letter in TARGET as a golf and life skill lesson. Participants will be exposed to the driving range, chipping and pitching area and putting. Fun games using SNAG equipment are also implemented into this level. There is no testing in the TARGET Level. Once a participant is able to demonstrate various golf fundamentals as well as The First Tee Code of Conduct, they move into the PLAYer level.
  • PLAYer (required minimum age 7): Children ages 7 and above or participants who have progressed from the TARGET Level. The PLAYer level is the introductory level of The First Tee Life Skills Experience. PLAYer teaches participants how to play the game of golf with special emphasis on learning golf and The First Tee Nine Core Values. These interpersonal and self-management skills will help participants develop much more than their golf game.
  • Par (Must be PLAYer certified. Recommended minimum age 9):  For The First Tee participants who are PLAYer Certified. The PAR level builds on the PLAYer level by introducing PLAYers to the mental side of golf while learning skills that will help them on and off the golf course. The main focus of the PAR level is to assist PLAYers in acquiring several self-management techniques that will help them manage their thoughts, emotions and behaviors in order to perform at their best on and off the golf course.

Parent Orientation is TBA. Parent Orientation provides parents with an in-depth introduction to the philosophy of The First Tee and helps the parent understand the progression path for children in the program.

Each session is open to children ages 7 to 17.

The First Tee of Utah at Rose Park has a wonderful story.

Guadalupe School in the Rose Park neighborhood of Salt Lake City serves some of the most economically and socially challenged members of our community, kids who face obstacles you and I can hardly imagine. A few years ago Guadalupe School built a new facility adjacent to the 17th tee at Rose Park Golf Course. In fact, construction of the school required reconfiguration of the 17th hole.

But that proximity did not immediately translate into opportunity, much less connection.

But by bringing The First Tee to Rose Park and the kids at Guadalupe School, The First Tee of Utah at Rose Park broke down the barrier keeping these wonderful kids from believing that they can go anywhere their dreams, talent and hard work will take them.

The First Tee of Utah at Rose Park is now offering these programs to any and all kids at junior golf classes at Rose Park Golf Course. Classes are under the direction of PGA Golf Professional Derek Schmehl, with highly experienced junior golf instructor Sean Pressey serving as the Program Director.
