From Marc Field, golf instructor at First Tee of Pgh, and Schenley's Golf Course

The First Tee program is one of the best things in Pittsburgh -- ever, anywhere. It rocks. And I hate golf. These guys are great. The program is first class. Everything there is splendid. If you are in the city and don't get your kid golfing there -- then shame on you. And, it goes year-round as they have indoor simulators as well.

Grant, 13, is a fine golfer now. Both Erik and I, not so much. So, if you ever want to play a round of golf, contact Grant (through me of course).

Feel invited.

The First Tee of Pittsburgh would like to invite you to join us for The First Tee of Pittsburgh Junior Golf Weekend, April 29 – May 1.  As part of our 10th Anniversary Pittsburgh City Council, Allegheny County Council and the PA House of Representatives have all issued proclamations to help us officially celebrate.  The purpose of Junior Golf Weekend is to promote golf as a great activity for area youth and families while helping everyone learn our code of conduct  -  respect yourself, respect others, and respect your surroundings.

I hope you are able to join us at The Bob O’Connor Golf Course in Schenley Park for some of the great family activities we have planned:

Friday, April 29 from 4 – 7 PM is Family Golf Night.  We want to encourage all  families to spend time together so we are offering discounted foursomes with special family tees.  All golf equipment will be provided for free.

Saturday, April 30 from 9:30 – 10:30 AM The Greater Pittsburgh Golf Course Superintendents Association will present a free “Care of the Course” clinic.  This will be followed by a free golf instruction clinic hosted by World Golf Hall of Famer Carol Semple Thompson from 11:30 – 1:30.

Sunday, May 1 from 10:30 – 11:30 AM the West Penn Golf Association will present an interactive Rules Clinic for juniors.    From 12 – 2 PM The Tri State PGA will lead a free instructional clinic.

Both Saturday and Sunday will also include many free golf games and skill contests presented by our teen Junior Activity Board.   Junior Golf Weekend is our chance to show you how The First Tee of Pittsburgh promotes positive youth development through golf based on nine core values such as sportsmanship, honesty, courtesy, and respect.  Please join us.
