Tee Up In Physical Education Class

In elementary schools in our community and across the United States, many students are teeing off for the first time thanks to the School Program, bringing our curriculum to your child’s gym during physical education class. By teaching elementary students First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits, we are putting them on the course to a healthy and active lifestyle.  Annually, over 14,000 students in Charleston and Berkeley counties are introduced to golf and life skills in their physical education classes. https://www.youtube.com/embed/eLUKN26AeA8

Lesson Plan

The School Program gives physical education teachers the tools to get started. We provide the training, junior golf lesson plans, and equipment.

Our Mission

  • Create a safe introduction to golf for today’s students and teachers.
  • Ensure that golf education meets the same national standards developed by the Society for Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE).
  • Help students build character and confidence through the positive personal and social values associated with the game.
  • Show students that golf can be a great part of a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Make the positive values of golf a part of the classroom and students’ everyday lives.
