Yardage Books & Study Guides

We have First Tee evaluations during class weeks 6 & 7 for PLAYer, Par, Birdie, and Eagle levels. This evaluation will consist of our life skills and playing ability curriculum that was covered during our first five classes. 

Parents please keep in mind that we will try to get everyone through the evaluation based on their ability.  If our coaching staff feels that a participant is not ready to move forward on a certain life skill question or golf skill evaluation, we will not proceed to advance that participant to the next level.  It is very important to understand that there is no pressure for a participant to complete a certain level.  Once they complete a golf skill or a life skill question, they will not have to retake that portion of the test.  If the participant does not pass their level this session, he or she will continue from where they left off during a future session.

We appreciate your patience and support during this process.
