The First Tee is in Wenatchee Valley!

We at Three Lakes Golf Course are excited to continue offering  the First Tee of Central Washington Programming at our facility! We want to help spread the word, and let YOU know how you might get involved with this proven youth development program that does so much more than just golf instruction!


The First Tee program offers PLAYer and PAR Level Classes for youth 7 to 13 years. Participants use various equipment including real golf clubs (provided) and will focus on basic golf skills, rules of the game, and Life Skills built on Nine Core Values. 

Classes meet twice a week. Registration is $90 for the full session of nine classes and financial aid is available during registration. (All equipment and course materials required are provided.)

TARGET Level Classes for children 5-6 years old will be offered for an introduction to golf with an emphasis on FUN. This Class is designed to introduce the grip and three swings to children using bright, over-sized equipment and targets that guarantee a lot of success! 

TARGET Classes will again be offered in the Summer of 2022.

The First Tee is successful because of the thousands of adults who volunteer their time to working with young people. Assistant coaches don’t need to be great golfers—or even golfers at all. A trained LEAD COACH does the instruction in class, then assistant coaches work with groups of four or five children, practicing those skills. If you might be interested in assisting with The First Tee at Three Lakes, please email Pat Welch, Wenatchee Valley Site Director at PatW@firstteecentralwashington.org or Lynn Miller, Site Coordinator at LynnM@firstteecentralwashington.org.



The First Tee philosophy is based on the belief that the golf and its inherent values can provide something to everyone, and no child is ever turned away for inability to pay. Your generous donations make it possible for deserving children from all walks of life to have the opportunities and experiences that the First Tee provides. If you would like to support the First Tee Central Washington at Wenatchee Valley, please consider a donation.

We are proud to partner with the First Tee and look forward to having more young people learning the game and enjoying our course.
