South Hills Golf Club is excited to partner with The First Tee for many reasons. This summer’s youth program for golf instruction will go to a whole new level. Not only does The First Tee provide top notch golf lessons for kids, it provides lessons in positive life values.
The First Tee has established Nine Core Values that represent some of the many inherently positive values connected with the game of golf. By participating in The First Tee, kids are introduced to these core values which are incorporated throughout the program. Parents are encouraged to reinforce these behaviors by talking about them, what they mean and what these behaviors can look like at home.
The Nine Core Values incorporated into the lessons are integrity, honesty, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
Playing the game of golf can improve your quality of life as there are many physical, emotional and social benefits, which is why The First Tee is so much more than just golf lessons.
