Junior Golf Opportunities

The First Tee

Sign up for “The First Tee” Youth Programs to be held at Blackhawk & Riverside Golf Courses 

The City of Janesville and KemperSports joined forces with The First Tee® of South Central Wisconsin in 2012, hosting an affiliate site at Blackhawk Golf Course and making affordable access to golf available to all area youth!
In 2018 programming will continue to include both Blackhawk and Riverside Golf Courses and The First Tee® of South Central Wisconsin offering youth golf programs for ALL children ages six and older. In our sixth season we are offering four program options. 
The First is a three week Target spring session beginning on Saturdays starting May 12th. 
The Blackhawk Junior League will be on Friday mornings, starting June 8th at Blackhawk Golf Course. These leagues will provide lesson and playing opportunities for beginner to intermediate and above players. 
Our Riverside Junior Academy will continue as part of The First Tee programming. This 11-session Academy will help establish the foundation for your people to become life-long players of the game. 
We are also continuing our 9 hole -Junior Golfing League in 2018. This 8-week Tuesday Golfing League will be held at Blackhawk Golf Course, starting with 15-30 minutes of instruction followed by 9-holes of league golf using a variety of formats.
In 2018 we are also offering a Junior PGA league. More details on the Junior PGA league to come.

In addition to the physical skills learned and healthy habits golf provides, The First Tee® of South Central Wisconsin reinforces important life skills inherent to the game that carry over to other aspects of life.

Outside of leagues, The First Tee® participants enjoy benefits such as reduced green fees at Blackhawk and Riverside Golf Courses and opportunities for free instruction on participant “Fun Days.” 
Scholarship opportunities are available for financially eligible participants and children of active military.
