Summer is almost here, and First Tee Tulsa is excited to announce an upcoming opportunity for First Tee Tulsa competitive players!

Who is it for? It’s open to all First Tee Tulsa students ages 13 and under who are registered in the 2020 First Tee Tulsa summer session. The child must be able to walk and carry their own bag (or push their cart) without assistance, play 9 holes in 2 hours or less, and keep their score accurately.

How does it work? After establishment of the First Tee Tulsa (FTT) team following the tryouts, the FTT will play against two other teams in the Tulsa region. Each visiting team will play at Mohawk Park Golf Course and we will then go to their course and play a match – it is designed much like little league baseball.

What does it cost? The cost is $75 per player. There is a possibility we will receive a grant from the PGA to cover the cost, we will know more at a later date. If the grant does not come through, the First Tee of Tulsa will pay the fee for players who need financial assistance.

Who is the coach? Janice Gibson, PGA/LPGA Professional.

There will be an informational meeting about First Tee Tulsa’s PGA Jr. League team for all who are interested (or who want to learn more) on Wednesday, June 3rd at 5:00 p.m. on the back patio of the First Tee Tulsa building. (Social distancing rules will be in effect).

Because there is a limitation on the number of team members, the First Tee of Tulsa will conduct tryouts scheduled for:

  • Thursday, June 4th, at 12:00 p.m.
  • Monday, June 8th, at 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 10th, at 3:00 p.m.
  • Friday, June 12th, at 12:00 p.m.

There is a requirement for 3 rounds to be played, however, you may play in all four and count the best three rounds. There will be space for 12 players on the team – the 10 lowest scores are on the team and the additional 2 places are reserved for a captain’s choice.

Please note, to try out for the First Tee Tulsa team, email Janice Gibson at jgibson@firstteetulsa.org by 12:00 p.m. the day before the qualifier so that your child will be listed in the pairings. When registering, please specify which specific dates your child plans to qualify in.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Janice Gibson at the above email or call her at the First Tee Tulsa office at (918) 591-4168.
