DESCRIPTION: The Foundation Tour was established to provide on-course learning and to introduce elementary and middle school students to competitive golf. There are two divisions: Elementary (grades 1-4) and Middle School (grades 5-8). Each division will play once a month at The Harvey Penick Golf Campus.
Be assertive in guiding and directing the kids as to where they need to go and how players respect others and their surrounding while out on the golf course.
Keep score for all the players in the group to provide a backup of each player’s scores on the holes. You will verify scores with the players as you walk from the green of the last hole played to the tee box of the next hole to be played.
Help the kids position their golf bags on the appropriate side of the green so as to ensure that the pace of play is being kept up with the group in front of them.
Help with any rules that may come up and help speed the process in the decision-making of what should be done.
DATES: Saturday, February 13 th, Friday, March 19 th and Friday, April 2 nd, 2020 (Tee Times: TBD)

A local chapter of The First Tee National Organization, The First Tee of Greater Austin's vision is based on the unwavering belief that: 1. We can enrich kids' lives with lessons taught through the game of golf. It is our goal that participants not only learn the life-long game of golf, but that they also acquire personal assets--such as resiliency, self-worth and a sense of integrity and responsibility--which will help them develop long-term physical, mental and social health. 2. Kids from all walks of life should have a place to learn and play. Consequently, our purpose is to introduce kids of all walks of life to the game of golf; and to create facilities and programs that make golf more affordable and accessible. 3. The First Tee of Greater Austin is in need of good mentor/coaches to help teach these valuable lessons in our weekly golf lessons.
The First Tee of Greater Austin is a nationally-affiliated, PGA, LPGA, Augusta National Golf Course, PGA America and USGA endorsed not-for-profit organization that strives to:
Make the seemingly exclusive game of golf all inclusive, accessible and fun for Austin-area elementary, middle and high school youth Develop in each child life skills related to interpersonal communication, goal setting, healthy behaviors, dealing with adversity and problem solving Recruit, manage and develop the best coaches, mentors and volunteers available Offer a curriculum that advocates continual development, and measures the success and improvement of each child, as well as the program itself Build strong relationships with all those involved including kids, parents, schools, partners, sponsors and volunteers
