The First Tee Hawaii Golf Program

The First Tee Hawaii Golf Program

‘Iolani School Residential Summer Programs, The First Tee® Hawaii, and Anderson Golf Academy (AGA) have partnered to offer an amazing summer opportunity for young golfing enthusiasts. During our week-long camp, golfers will live in ‘Iolani’s brand new state-of-the-art residence hall, receive top level coaching through AGA and The First Tee® Hawaii, develop their golf game on O’ahu’s famously picturesque courses.

This program teaches life skills, core values, and healthy habits through the game of golf. Students of all skill levels will be immersed in a week-long program with certified PGA Golf Professionals from the AGA, covering everything from golf basics through technical game improvement drills. There will also be golf-specific fitness training, fun golf games and activities, on-course play, and lessons on the history, rules, and etiquette of golf. All of our activities are designed to assist our student golfers in taking their games to the next level.

The First Tee® Hawaii

The First Tee® of Hawaii is part of a world-wide youth development organization that uses the game of golf to teach essential core values, valuable life-skills, and healthy habits to youth between 5-18 years old. There are over 150 chapters around the world that have introduced the game of golf and life-skills curriculum to over 10 million youth in the past 20 years. Programs and classes are conducted at golf courses, schools, and youth centers.

Anderson Golf Academy

The Anderson Golf Academy was founded in 2016 by Kellan Anderson, a PGA Class A Member. Kellan has worked as an assistant golf professional at Turtle Bay Resort, as head golf professional at Hoakalei Country Club, and has been teaching the game of golf for over 15 years. Kellan and his staff of golf professionals enjoy making the game of golf fun for all ages and skill levels.
