Spring Session COVID-19 update

We hope everyone had a great and healthy fall season. We wanted to share some updates with regards to golf and our programs throughout our service area. Golf courses in LA County are now open, but with strict guidelines. Driving ranges are open, although currently putting greens and short game areas are closed. Certain golf courses are allowing one-on-one lessons, others are not. As of now, group instruction and tournaments are not permitted. But restrictions are being changed on a constant basis.

Here at First Tee – Greater Pasadena, we are preparing to conduct our winter session starting the week of April 5th through April 11th and run for 8-consecutive weeks. Registration for the spring session will begin on our website on February 8th. To view our current spring session schedule and to register, please see below and click the Register Now at the top of this screen.

Understand that we (FTGP) must follow the safety guidelines of LA County and the local cities where each golf course is located.  Currently, the ONLY golf course that we received approval to conduct our summer session classes is at Brookside in Pasadena.  We received this approval through the City of Pasadena Health Department.  Classes that were scheduled for LA County Courses (Altadena, Eaton Canyon) have been moved to Brookside.  In addition, Alhambra and South Pasadena classes have been moved to Brookside.

How can you help make a difference?
• Please review our COVID-19 Safety Measures.  This information is available under our Program Section called COVID-19 Safety Measures.
• Speak with your child/children with regards to these COVID-19 Safety Measures.
• Once group instruction starts, please be patient during our registration process. Registration will take longer for the 1st couple of weeks until parents and participants get familiar with this new process.
• Arrive on time. Late arrivals will make registration and warm-up a challenge to our staff and the other youth participants in the class.
• Follow the safety rules at the golf courses where your child will attend.
• Please continue to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.
• Refer a friend. We are always looking for new participants to be exposed to this great game!

Recently we conducted a COVID-19 safety training for our coaching staff.  We at First Tee – Greater Pasadena are extremely excited to re-open our program and continue to impact the lives of Greater Pasadena area youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
