2024 Fall Programs

At First Tee – Greater Richmond, we build game changers. Our Fall sessions are an excellent opportunity for youth of any age and any skill-set to learn the game of golf. Through our sessions we build on both golf skills and life skills in a fun group setting. Our evidence based curriculum helps kids become better versions of themselves while strengthening the character of our community.

All three First Tee – Greater Richmond facilities will be offering programs at varying times for the different age ranges.

Fall sessions will begin on Monday, August 26th and conclude on Saturday, October 12th.


Registration will be a first come, first serve basis. If sessions are full, please join the waitlist. This will help with getting a spot if we’re able to increase maximum capacities or add additional classes to the schedule.

Age Groups

First Tee – Greater Richmond utilizes age-based programs that create a stimulating and age appropriate environment for our program participants.

Participants will register and be grouped by age (5-6, 7-9, 10-11, 12-13, and 14+), and will progress through the program as they “age up”. In some cases, age groups may be grouped together to maximize class sizes.


A founding purpose of First Tee is to make golf more accessible to all youth, particularly young people who otherwise may not have an opportunity to learn and play the game. Our policy is to provide access to programs regardless of a participant’s ability to play. Our financial aid program is funded by generous donors. Parents/guardians may apply for financial aid as part of the online registration process. Once you have applied for financial aid through the online registration, you will receive an email notification and can then complete the registration.

Ages 5-6 classes: $80 (45 minutes)

Ages 7-13 classes: $90 (60 minutes)

Ages 14+ classes: $100 (90 minutes)

  • Classes meet once a week.
  • Participants may only sign up for ONE First Tee Program course to ensure that we are reaching everyone in the community to maintain our coach to participant ratios and maximize participation. ​
  • Classes are intended to be outdoors, subject to weather. In the event of inclement weather, classes will be held inside.
  • Refunds ​will be subject to a $​15​.00 administrative fee.
