Breaking News: The First Tee of Tulsa is updating its curriculum.  The ability to expand our program to include the Nine Healthy Habits, along with new life-skill and golf-skill lessons motivated this exciting update.  To accommodate the abundant influx of new information in our modernized curriculum, the levels of our program have been adjusted.  The levels now consist of Sorenstam, Jones, Hogan, Whitworth, and Palmer.  These five levels precede the Birdie, Eagle, and Ace levels.  The staff at The First Tee of Tulsa has conducted extensive research to place our previous students in the correct level.  If you have previously attended classes, please contact Alex Miller at coach@thefirstteetulsa.org or Austin Quinten at aquinten@thefirstteetulsa.org to learn what new and thrilling level you will attend this year.
