First Tee will Debut the Junior Experience at THE 119th U.S. Open, June 10-16
The USGA has partnered with First Tee to bring a family friendly experience to the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach called the Junior Experience. Located within the U.S. Open’s Fan Central, the Junior Experience is one of a series of initiatives in which the two organizations have committed to deliver in 2019 to support the growth and long-term viability of golf, which also includes the continuation of an extensive annual First Tee chapter grant program funded by USGA. Since First Tee’s inception in 1997, USGA has provided more than $26 million in grants to the organization.
Interactive, family fun activities will include:
- Putting green
- Chipping challenge
- Golf simulator
- Giant coloring wall
- Course-wide scavenger hunt
- Digital photo booth to document all the memories you’ll be making
Kids won’t be the only ones having fun in Fan Central, parents can relax in the tent as well at the charging stations. The Junior Experience will be available all week long with the hours Monday-Wednesday from 10am-4pm and Thursday-Sunday from 9am-6pm.
Thanks to the U.S. Open’s junior ticket policy, youth under the age of 12 (who are accompanied by an adult ticket purchaser) can attend the U.S. Open with a complimentary ticket!

Additionally, Junior tickets for ages 13-18 will be available for purchase at a reduced price when accompanied by an Adult ticket holder.
