Rating: 5 stars  

This was my son's first year in the First Tee program and he loved it. Not only did he learn proper mechanics with his golf swing, he was so much more attentive to the details of the game. He would mark his ball, rake the bunkers, and really try to play by the rules of the game. He would even count his misses as strokes because that was the right thing to do. The First Tee of Idaho has instilled valuable life lessons, while making the game of golf fun.
