The First Tee Tournament League
Current locations: Brookside, Alhambra Golf Course and Marshall Canyon Golf Course
This is a NEW CONCEPT for us. We want to develop a group of golfers (4-8 players per team) from each location that will play in intramural tournaments against the other teams.
The League will consist of (1) practice day per week (TBD by coach and players) and (1) tournament day per week on Saturday from 4pm to 7 pm at one of the above mentioned locations (schedule below). Teams will travel among area locations each week to play. Transportation not provided by TFTGP.
At the end of each 9 week Tournament League session, we will crown a Session Championship Team, as well as an individual Champion with medals and a trophy to presented to the winners. We will then continue again the next session. (There will be no Tournament league play during the Winter session).
Players new to the program will try out and be selected for the teams on week 1 (Alhambra Monday June 12 @ 4pm, Marshall Canyon Tuesday June 13 @ 4 pm, Brookside Friday June 16 @4pm).
Players will be selected for the teams based on their total scores for the following skills:
* Up and Downs- one approach shot to the green from 10, 20, 30 yds and
finish by putting the ball into the hole with a maximum score of 12
* Drive from the tee box into a fairway with 3 out of 6 staying in the
fairway (fairway to be 40 yds wide).
* Putt a 9 hole course (3 short putts from 4-6 ft, 3 medium putts from
8-12 ft, and 3 long putts from 18-25 ft) with a maximum score of 23
* Must show that they understand the process of playing the game of
golf, its rules and etiquette while doing the putting challenge.
The cost of the Tournament League will be $250 per season, which cover the costs of practice sessions, coaching fees, green fees, trophies, medals, team shirt and hat with the logo of their location and a Jr. pull cart.
All team members must be currently enrolled in a PLAYer, Par, Birdie or Eagle class.

Players who are not successful in qualifying for a team (6 players maximum) are welcome to attend our Tournament League golf clinics at each location to work on their skills. Each clinic is one day per week for an hour and a half for 8 weeks and costs $25 for the session. Session days are as follows:
Alhambra Mondays from 4-5:30, Marshall Canyon Tuesdays from 4-5:30, Brookside Fridays from 4-5:30. It is not necessary to be a current member of The First Tee of Greater Pasadena; ALL ARE WELCOME. Online registration is not necessary for the clinics, just bring a check when you show up.
