Play and compete in a team format while continuing to receive weekly instruction from a qualified coach. The Players’ Club has different teams that are located at different courses throughout Denver. Each team has a coach, an assistant coach, and between 10-15 players. The season kicks off with a pairings party where the players are assigned a team and a coach for the season. With their team, participants have 2 practices a week in preparation for the weekly tournaments. These weekly events include a Par 3, 9-hole, and 18-hole tournament that rotate from course to course each week. These different types of tournaments allow us to encompass a variety of different skill levels, while still maintaining a fun and competitive environment. By getting to play on the course in a tournament setting each week the kids get to learn golf skills and the rules of the game while also learning core values like sportsmanship and integrity. At the end of the summer there is an awards banquet to honor the hard work of the participants throughout the season. Prizes are awarded to the top teams and individual performers at each level. 100% of the tournament fees go toward prizes and the awards banquet. The First Tee of Denver’s Players’ Club provides a unique opportunity for participants who are ready to play the regulation golf courses. Sign up today!
Participants will be placed in one of three flights:
PAR 3 FLIGHT
Par 3 tournaments will be team style formats (four-person scrambles) in order to introduce tournament style golf in a fun, stress free environment.
9 HOLE FLIGHT
9 hole tournaments will be played on 5 different golf courses and formats are tailored to start getting participants used to playing their own ball (2-person best ball, alternate shot). This will let your participant play a more competitive round but still have the security of playing with a partner.
18 HOLE FLIGHT
18 hole tournaments will be mostly played with participants own ball in either stroke or match play formats. This flight is designed to keep your high school player sharp for the beginning of the next season.
Tournaments will be played at various courses throughout the season. Each team will have one home course where they will hold practices (City Park, Kennedy, Overland, Wellshire, or Willis Case).
Par-3 and 9-hole tournaments have a $5 green fee for each event. 18-hole tournaments have a $10 green fee. 2017 tournament venue schedule TBD.
18-hole and 9-hole tournaments will be Tuesdays afternoons. Par-3 tournaments will be Monday afternoons. Tee times will be between approximately noon and 2:30.
Practices will start the week of June 5th. All practice times will be determined by coach and players at the annual Pairings Party.
Our annual Pairings Party is a time for our coaches, parents and players to come together and get to know each other. This is also a great time to set practice schedules and meet your teammates. This years Pairings Party will be held on May 25th with time and venue TBD.
