Program Descriptions

PLAYer Group Golf Lessons 

In the PLAYer Junior Golf Group Lessons, participants ages 5-18 receive basic golf instruction in classes with no larger than an six-to-one student/instructor ratio. The classes meet once per week for seven weeks, 60 minutes per class, during which time the participants are taught the fundamentals, rules and etiquette of golf along with a curriculum of life skills. All classes are led by a qualified golf instructor. These sessions will be offered continuously throughout the year. Students who have their own golf clubs are encouraged to bring them to class; however, for any student who does not have equipment, The First Tee of Tennessee in Memphis will provide the appropriate clubs for each session.

Your child’s primary goal for the PLAYer Junior Golf Group Lessons is to pass the “PLAYer  Certification” requirements to become eligible for The First Tee of Tennessee in Memphis Par Level 1 class.  If your child already meets the “ PLAYer  Certification” requirements, he or she should enroll in The First Tee of Tennessee in Memphis Par Level 1 Class.
