Community Connections partnered with The First Tee of Central Arkansas in 2011 to provide a golf program for children ages 7-17 with special needs. The purpose of the golf program is to teach our kids the game of golf in a positive, encouraging environment. The golfers spend time each day in the classroom learning the rules and etiquette of golf then take their skills onto the course to put the learning into action. All of our golfers are taught by the instructors at The First Tee and assisted by the Community Connections staff. The First Tee charges a nominal fee for the instructors and equipment but gives a generous discount to all Community Connections kids.
Golf is offered during the summer and is set up in week long camps. Camps will be held at different times during the summer months at The First Tee of Central Arkansas location in Little Rock. All golf clubs, golf balls, golf bags, and any other golf equipment is provided by The First Tee.
