Our LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program is a great way to introduce your girl to the game of golf, new friends, and The First Tee of North Florida. These programs and events are intended to help build confidence and friendship with other girls from the community. Our Girls Golf Coach Team is made up of female mentors who guide the girls through activities designed to enhance their golf and leadership skills. This program helps build leaders and discuss what females can achieve in sport and the community.
