WELCOME TO THE TIN WHISTLES-FIRST TEE JUNIOR GOLF TOUR
“JUNIOR GOLFERS PLAYING THE SANDHILLS FINEST GOLF COURSES”
The Tin Whistles have joined with First Tee of the Sandhills to create a golf tour for players 17 and under as of June 17, 2012. Players 18 but still in high school may also compete. Play will be conducted over six of the Sandhills’ finest courses. The events combine competition with a significant learning experience. Golfers 12 and over will play a 36 hole tournament over two consecutive days. Flights are arranged by age, gender and skill level for each event. The goal is to prepare players for high school and college competition. Golfers under 12 will play an 18 hole tournament over two days (9 holes each day). Play at this level is more relaxed while still providing competition with the focus on learning to play in a competitive event.
The mission of the tour is to help young players realize their potential in competitive tournaments within a learning environment while enjoying the game, practicing the core values of The First Tee, and developing respect for the game as exemplified by the Tin Whistles.
Nine Core Values
The Tin Whistles-First Tee Tour is dedicated to the First Tee Nine Core Values as the center piece of developmental learning for all its players.
