Par Level: A less intensive and fun based introduction to golf through physical activities, golf instruction and progressive on-course activities to include SNAG Golf, FootGolf and regular golf. This is the best option for younger golfers or those who are newer to the game and want to learn with friends. Many juniors enjoy repeating the Par Level class and we do not recommend registering for Birdie unless the juniors or parents feel that they are personally motivated and ready for a more golf specific, intensive and individualized golf experience.
Birdie Level: Juniors must have conceptual understanding and golf skills that allow for more specific skill instruction, individual motivation and the ability to carry their clubs and manage themselves for 9-holes. They will be supervised on the course but in more of a coaching atmosphere than at the Par level.
The First Tee Life Skills and Nine Core Values: The First Tee of Eagle County programs incorporate The First Tee Life Skills ExperienceTM, so all participants learn valuable lessons including maintaining a positive attitude, considering consequences before making decisions demonstrating sportsmanship win or lose, setting goals, and applying The First Tee Nine Core ValuesTM (e.g. responsibility, honesty, integrity, respect, confidence) not only to golf but to everyday life.
