What’s new at The First Tee of Chattanooga

2014 Summer Session Offerings

Registration is Now Open for the Summer Session. 

The First Tee Core Curriculum Offerings:  As always, we will be offering the core level classes this summer.  The Levels are:  PLAYer New, PLAYer Previous, Par, Birdie Players, Birdie, Eagle, Ace.  You can read more about the levels by reading about The First Tee.  All participants must be 7 years old before beginning the program.

NEW THIS YEAR for Better Players:  Competitve League playing at area courses.  (This is in addition to Core Program involvement)  We will offer a 9-hole Q-school for players to meet a target score and a Rules Test for players to meet a target score.  Players who meet the score will be in our Competitive League.  We expect to play 4-6 Courses in the area and play two or more Inter-Chapter Challenge Matches against other chapters of The First Tee. If you are interested, please check the box on the application.

RETURNING after a few years:  BIRDIE Players' Group Class.  (This is one of the Birdie Class offerings)  The Birdie Player's Group Class will split their classes between The First Tee of Chattanooga in our normal Birdie Class and an on-course Playing Lesson Class at Brown Acres.  Classes will alternate the location and time of the class. The days and times are posted on the schedule but may change.  If they do change, I will check with you want to stay in the class or shift to the other Birdie Class.  This is the best Birdie Class to attend if your schedule allows.  The other Birdie Class will be the normal class that is held here for the session.
