Five Ocean Ridge golfers show up at Cinghiale Creek, the home course of The First Tee, every Tuesday afternoon. From 4-5:30 p.m., they teach golf and life skills to 15 junior golfers.
The juniors hit balls and play the course. They also sit down in the classroom and talk about life skills. They learn “meet and greet,” the age old ritual of shaking hands, so important to job, relationships, and sports.
They learn by doing, by trying new skills with their clubs. They learn by example from their coaches.
Bill Smith is the lead coach.
