1. What should my child bring to class?

Students may bring their own clubs or borrow from our assortment of different sized clubs. We recommend that students bring a water bottle, hat, and wear sunscreen.

2. What if the weather is bad?

Denver’s weather is unpredictable. We will always try to hold classes and will not cancel until at least 10 minutes after class has started if dangerous or bad weather persists. When in doubt, come to class. In the event class is cancelled, a make-up class will be held immediately following the week class was supposed to end and will be held at the same time and same place unless you were otherwise notified. We will only hold one make up class per session. If we cancel a class, it will be posted on our Facebook page (The First Tee of Denver).

3. How does my child get certified?

At the end of all Pardie, Birdie, Eagle, and Ace classes, participants will take The First Tee Golf Skills Certification test appropriate for that level of class. Participants must pass the certification to move to the higher level class; i.e. must pass the Birdie certification to take the Eagle class. If your child missed certification or is new to The First Tee of Denver, please check the website periodically for certification dates. If you don’t know the results of your child’s certification attempt or have other questions, please contact nick@thefirstteeofdenver.com.

4. Do you have drinking water on the course?

Yes, water is available on the courses, but we strongly recommend that your child has a water bottle, particularly on hot summer days, as the structure of the classes does not allow for frequent trips to the water cooler.

5. What class should my child take next?

Please see the chart here.

6. Can I play the junior courses at City Park, Wellshire, and Willis Case with my child?

Yes. The courses are designed for kids, but adults who are accompanied by a junior golfer are welcome to play. There is no need to make a tee time and it’s free to play.

7. Can parents use the practice facilities while kids are in class?

Yes, adults are welcome to use the designated practice facilities at each course during their children’s First Tee classes. Driving range tokens are available for purchase in the Pro Shops. Please refrain from using the junior courses during First Tee programming.

8. Can we rent the junior course?

Yes. The junior courses and club houses are available to rent and are great for birthday parties or other special events. For pricing and scheduling information, contact paula.purifoy@denvergov.org.

9. How can I volunteer?
