Junior Golf Programs
Tennessee’s Premier Junior Tour. The Sneds Tour helps create opportunities for junior golfers to learn, play, and enjoy the game of golf. It motivates and educates junior golfers through golf, so they may learn values of honesty, integrity and sportsmanship to last them a lifetime.
PGA Tour winner and Knoxville native, Scott Stallings, has teamed up with the Tennessee Golf Foundation to bring free junior golf to Tennessee. The mission is simple: Provide Tennessee’s youth with unrestricted, free access to the game of golf at multiple facilities, 365 days a year.
The First Tee Tennessee in Greater Knoxville’s goal is not to develop the next professional golfer, but to help our youth make the transition into adulthood, teaching them how to set and achieve realistic goals, deal with conflicts and challenges, and develop core values.
PGA Jr. League brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals.
By tapping the creative and competitive spirit of girls and boys ages 7-15, Drive, Chip and Putt provides aspiring junior golfers an opportunity to play with their peers in qualifiers around the country.
“Absolutely love my job and the people I’ve been fortunate enough to develop relationships with over the years because of it. Let’s keep growing this great game together!”
