Modeling after the The First Tee Nine Core Values such as honesty, integrity and confidence is a sampling of values that will be taught through the CYO golf program by the instructors and the natural rules of the game.
This program is open to all ability levels for children in grades 4 - 8. Children will be evaluated based on ability level in their first session and grouped accordingly based on 1) age and 2) ability.
