The First Tee of Yakima

In June, 2008, The First Tee of Yakima began operating at two golf courses in Yakima.  Suntides Golf Course is an 18 hole, par 70 course with a complete practice area. The other course was Fisher Golf Course, a 9 hole, par 3 course, also offering practice chipping and putting greens. Beginner classes were also held at Kiwanis Park using “SNAG” introductory golf equipment.

The following summer, several other Yakima city parks were added to the program, along with Cherry Hill Golf Course, a 9 hole, par 30 executive course in Granger, WA.

Today, programming is offered at Suntides and Cherry Hill golf courses, as well as at Fisher Golf Course, River Ridge Golf Course, and Henry Beauchamp Community Center Park. We are currently in the planning stages for building a new practice facility at the Sozo Sports Complex.

Youth ages 5-18 can join The First Tee with a $75 program fee. Full scholarship is also available  to any child in need. Participants do not need their own equipment, as we have a large  selection of clubs and bags in a variety of sizes.
