The First Tee is a national program with over 200 facilities spread throughout the US and Globe.  BREC is proud to be in association with a local chapter known as The First Tee of East Baton Rouge Parish.  The Chapter offers programming for boys and girls ages 7 to 17 interested in mastering the skills of golf is a challenging and rewarding venue. The approach is to enter the juniors into a process of learning and mastering golf skills coupled with life skills intrinsic to the game of golf. The objective is to create formidable golfers and quality citizens.  To accomplish this, juniors go through a step by step process of learning and doing; the intent is to make this an on-going experience for the term of their young lives leading to adulthood.  Since golf is a lifetime sport, preparing for it through a program like The First Tee makes sense.

The program is currently operated by BREC and managed by Henry Pointer (PGA and Life Skills Coach).   For more information see the attached PDF, First Tee PDF    Also visit their website at www.thefirstteeebrp.org .
