About Our Chapter

The First Tee of The Coachella Valley is located at the Golf Center at Palm Desert off of Cook Street across from Palm Desert High School. We offer a public 9 hole Par 3 golf course for participants to utilize 7 days a week. With a dual end practice facility including a driving range, chipping area and putting greens, our chapter offers a safe and fun environment for children to learn the game of golf.


Who Can Play? Golf is a game for everyone.

The First Tee teaches your child the life-long sport of golf along with important life skills. Programming is age and competency-based, with kids demonstrating proficiency in learned golf skills and the related life skills curriculum. Each level of attainment is acknowledged through certification and the awarding of golf privileges. The First Tee curriculum offers five progressive levels of golf and life skills instruction: PLAYer, PAR, BIRDIE, EAGLE and ACE.

Parent Involvement

Do you have questions about our program and what we can offer your child? Have you ever wondered what the procedure is for your child moving up in our program? We want ALL parents to take time to complete our 1.5 hour orientation that is geared to answer questions and provide information about The First Tee of The Coachella Valley. Please make this orientation a priority, as your commitment to this program is equally as important as your child’s participation in their classes.
