About the “Week 9 Championships”

Each season, more than 300 young golfers ages 7-18 take part in a fun, educational, and competitive atmosphere at Jefferson Park and Crossroads Par-3 golf courses. Divisions are held throughout Saturday and Sunday at each location, giving participants the chance to play with others similar in age and skill level.  All groups start at the same time in a shotgun format, compete on the nine-hole par three course and finish with an awards presentation to conclude the day.

The “Week 9 Championships” are the culmination of the eight-week First Tee programming session. There are three tournaments per year, following the spring (May), summer (August) and fall (November) sessions.
