The First Tee of Greater Seattle teaches golf and life skills to 1,500 local youth on Seattle’s municipal golf courses each year. Without those four facilities, that kind of impact is not possible. And it’s not just the youth who are playing these golf courses. It’s YOU, as well!

One response to “The State of Golf in Seattle

  1. My name is Alex, and I am a senior at Redmond High School. Golfing at Seattle’s public courses has been a highlight of my growing up in the Seattle area. One of my very first rounds of golf happened when I was in sixth grade at Interbay Golf Course with my dad. Additionally, my very first competitive tournament (under the Washington State Junior Golf Association) was at West Seattle Golf Course. Since then, I have turned into a competitive golfer, and The First Tee of Greater Seattle has helped in my development as such. I started participation in The First Tee in eighth grade, when I took classes at the Crossroads par three course. From my first year of high school on, I participated in classes at Jefferson Park as part of The First Tee’s ACE group. Not only have I learned to golf during those classes at Jefferson Park, but I have learned to develop my character under The First Tee’s teachings on the Nine Core Values. I have made some of my closest friends through these golf classes. Thus, it can be seen that some of my best childhood memories were made through Seattle’s public golf courses. If the city of Seattle decides to plow through these golf courses for housing, others would not be able to develop the same fantastic memories that I did at these golf courses. And for that reason, I implore the City of Seattle to keep these beautiful golf courses open.
