We offer our program to anyone between the ages of 7- 18, regardless of background or previous experience. All we ask is that kids come with an open mind and positive attitude.

We are dedicated to making golf affordable for everyone. Spring and Fall sessions are $60 for 5 weeks of instruction. June and July sessions are $50, includes 4 weeks of instruction. Every session is 1 day a week for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Totaling 7.5 hours of instruction for Spring and Fall, and 6 hours for June and July. There is also a $30 annual membership fee that covers the cost of a swag bag and Youth on Course Membership. 
  • Financial concerns?
No worries! We offer full scholarships or reduced fee programming for those with financial need. We will NEVER turn a child away if the family cannot afford our program. Applying for financial aid is simple and can be completed during the registration process. Every time you register, you will be asked if you would like to apply for financial aid, if yes, you will be asked a few questions and after submitted, a member of our staff will approve within 48 hours.
  • What about golf equipment?
We have a $40 rental program that allows participants to take the clubs home and keep them the entire year. We provide golf balls, tees, ball markers, divot repair tools and everything else your child needs to be all set for our classes!
  • What if my child has never picked up a golf club before?
Our coaches are trained in positive youth development. That means they are experts in making kids and teens feel comfortable and assure they have a positive, non-intimidating experience.
  • How do you build character through golf?
At First Tee – Idaho, we’re Building Game Changers by empowering kids and teens to be the best version of themselves. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with character-building, we create learning experiences that help kids uncover their inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that they can carry to everything they do. Our trained coaches not only provide an introduction to junior golf and an opportunity to enhance golf skills, but they also create a safe, supportive, and empowering environment to help your child prepare for life ahead, including friendships, school, college and even their careers.
  • I have a child in the program, am I allowed to volunteer for their class or for any class?
YES! We love having parents volunteer because it helps you help your child through the program. You do not need to have any golf experience in order to volunteer with us. Moreover, we depend very much on volunteer help in order to keep our participant to coach ratio at 6:1. If interested, contact our Program Director, Katie McKelvey, at [email protected].
  • Is there competition and physical activity?
Absolutely! Kids can burn up to 800 calories walking 9 holes of golf and coaches make lessons competitive while having fun. As participants get older, they have the chance to compete at national events held across the country.
