2014 Participants Tournament


RE: 2014 Fall Participant Tournament 11/23

Due to the forecast of heavy rain, thunderstorms and winds 20-30 mph, this afternoon's Fall Participants Tournament at AC Read Golf Course onboard NAS Pensacola has been postponed--we have tentatively rescheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, December 14th.

We will be in touch with more information as we work the details for the new date. We know many of our Junior Golfers will be disappointed, but safety of our players (and parents and guests) always comes first!

Program Decscription


Through Life Skills Experience, participants learn valuable lessons about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude; how to make decisions by thinking about the possible consequences and how to define and set goals from the golf course to everyday life.

These lessons for life are taught through a variety of golf-related activities designed with the primary goal of having fun.

Participants learn about themselves and others through a range of experiences enhancing their golf skills as well as their fundamental values for life. As their opportunities on the golf course expand, so do the opportunities for their futures.

ll participants receive The First Tee Card so their progress can be observed as they advance through The First Tee Certification levels of Player, Par, birdie, Eagle, and Ace. Each stage introduces young people to different aspects of golf and life skills.

The lessons learned through the Life Skills Experience are lessons that will remain with young people well into their future, regardless of how long they play golf as a recreation.
