First Tee of Northwest Arkansas is offering some special summer events for the kids.  The group recently expanded.  Now that they have a new facility more kids are learning the Ins-and-Outs of the game. Kids 10 and up are eligible to come out and learn the game of golf. 

Mike Shea the Director of the facility says the new facility lets them deal with a lot more kids every day as well as offer a complete golf experience.

This summer employees will offer an hour and a half on the range each day, and they'll also get the same amount of time to work on their short game and on putting.

They also get an hour and a half on our 3-hole golf course.

Shea says that First Tee works with the kids in small groups which allows them to get more specific with the kids.

The cost is 75 dollars a week and you need to be 10 years or older. They can go online at thefirstteenwa.org

While a lot of people want to get their kids involved in the game but it can be expensive. Luckily with First Tee everything is provided: Clubs, balls, tees, and instruction.

Shea says if kids don’t have clubs of their own they provide them.

First Tee of NWA is ready to teach your kids how to play golf this summer.  Along with the the game of golf instructors provide a message of honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, and responsibility.  They’re great characteristics that will help them in the game of life and the game of golf.
