College Golf Prep Academy
Intended for advanced players pursuing college golf, 20 to 24 elite junior golfers from The First Tee chapters are selected to attend each summer. Participants receive life skills and golf instruction from The First Tee Coaches and special guest speakers to help improve their chances to compete at a higher level athletically and academically.
During the week, they participate in interactive sessions in the areas of:
- golf technique
- education and career exploration
- physical fitness and nutrition
- golf equipment fitting
In addition, participants will experience dorm living as well as on course play and compete for The Cohen-Tattersall Cup.
The 2017 College Golf Prep Academy will take place in West Palm Beach, Fl July 11-18. The College Golf Prep Academy is led by The First Tee home office and hosted by The First Tee of the Palm Beaches and Keiser University.
