WELCOME TO THE TIN WHISTLES-FIRST TEE JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM

“JUNIOR GOLFERS PLAYING THE SANDHILLS FINEST GOLF COURSES”

“12TH YEAR PROMOTING JUNIOR GOLF”

This is the 12th year for the Tin Whistles to support youth golf in the Sandhills. This year there is an exciting change!

The Tin Whistles in conjunction with the Carolina’s Golf Association – Tarheel Youth Golf Association (TYGA), and the First Tee of the Sandhills will be supporting TYGA Sandhills tournaments. 

The 9-hole tournaments (ages 6 to 12) are called TYGA Tots hosted by the Tin Whistles. For the 18-hole tournaments (ages 8 to 17) they are called TYGA One Day Sandhills tournaments which the Tin Whistles will support with the First Tee of the Sandhills.

The Tin Whistles will host 6 TYGA Tots Sandhills tournaments, which are noted on this website on the 2019 Schedule along with how to register and sign-up on the TYGA website.

 

 The 18-hole TYGA One Day Sandhill tournaments are also noted on the 2019 Schedule page with information on registration and signing up for each tournament. 

All entrants must have basic golfing skills, a general understanding of the rules and etiquette of golf, and be able to walk the course.

Relatives and friends are welcome to attend and cheer their player but will be restricted to cart paths and may not coach players unless serving as a caddie.

If you have any questions about the tour or to the ability of a player to compete please Contact Us on this page. We are eager to assist junior golfers to participate in what we are confident will be a very positive experience.
