Tee It Up Tour


We currently offer two different Tee It Up Tour Leagues: Developmental and Tournament. Both leagues are $109 for seven weeks and a Youth on Course Membership is required to participate. Financial aid is NOT accepted. Participants are only allowed to register for one league. It is not mandatory to move up from Developmental League to Tournament League. Although, if you are interested in participating in Tournament League, please connect with your Developmental League coach before registering.

Developmental League

Class Description:

This class includes instruction in all areas (putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing). Golf drills, practice, range balls, and occasional play on the golf course will take place. Kids will be learning about life skills and etiquette that can be used on the golf course. There will be a new golf rule/lesson discussed on and off the course each week of the session. We will be focusing on course management on the tee box, fairways, rough, and putting green. Players will also be learning how to keep track of their scores on a scorecard. We highly recommend that you bring your own golf clubs for this class and possibly a pushcart for when players walk the golf course. Please note: for participants to get the most out of this class, it is recommended that players have some beginner experience out on the golf course.

How to Qualify for Developmental League:
  • Must have either participated in a Life Skills class prior to registering or must be 9-17 years old.
  • Must have a coach’s recommendation.
  • Must have some beginner experience out on the golf course. Players cannot be brand new to the game.

This tour will remain at the same location for all seven weeks. As the weeks progress, participants will begin going on the golf course as their skills develop to learn course management.


Tournament League (Thursdays)

Tournament Description:

Our Tournament League is designed to help players prepare JGANC or AJGA golf tournaments and for players to become independent on the golf course. We ultimately want to make sure that all players are having fun during the competitive tournaments while showing honesty, respect, and having good sportsmanship. This league will be rotating golf courses every Thursday for the seven week session.

Team Play League (Wednesdays)

Invitation Only for Summer 2024

League Description:

First Tee – Fresno has a new offering! Players will be divided into two teams, each coached by a golf professional at Riverside Golf Course. The matches will be played on Wednesdays at Riverside throughout the Summer in a partner scramble format.

  • Games are played by two-person teams (or three if a substitute is included).
  • All league games are played in a two-person scramble format. This means that both players in a pair hit drives. The best shot is selected, then each player plays from the selected spot, and this process continues until the ball is holed. The scramble format is key in allowing everyone to hit shots and contribute to the team. Team play utilizes match play scoring, which focuses on performance vs. a score-to-par as is traditional with golf.
  • Within a league game, pairs play in a head-to-head, 9-hole match. Each match is broken down into three flags. Each flag is three holes in a row, and each team has the opportunity to earn points at the end of each flag.

  • Players must arrive at the first hole 10 minutes before tee time.
  • Spectators must remain 25 yards from the participants in the rough or on the cart path.

    • Winning partnership of each leg will receive 1 point for their team. A tie will result in half a point for their team.
