This week, 28 students from Tolt Middle School kicked off Masters Week with a field trip to Blue Heron Golf Course. The students were greeted by excited coaches from The First Tee and a host of activity stations around the course that gave them a chance to put their skills to the test. Whether on the driving range or around the greens, the students spent the morning building confidence in new ways and in new spaces.
Through The First Tee’s DRIVE program, these middle schoolers have been learning the elements of the game during their P.E. class. DRIVE, which stands for Develops Rewarding, Inspiring Values for Everyone, gives young people a chance to learn about golf and develop character through fun golf games in any environment. The First Tee of Greater Seattle partners with more than 190 schools to introduce the game and its values during the school day to more than 100,000 students throughout King County.
