Birdie Class Format

To ensure that our advanced participants maximize their time and abilities in class we have split our advanced player classes into three different levels: 
Intro to Birdie will be for students that have certified and wish to advance their golf skills and knowledge to the next level but still need to master basic technique.
Birdie class will be for students that have mastered basic technique and have aspirations but are not quite ready to play tournament golf at a competitive level.
Advanced Birdie class will be for those juniors that have played competitive golf or are close to playing competitive golf at a higher level (high school, CJGA, AJGA events)
In the summer all birdie class participants will be encouraged to participate in The First Tee of Denver’s Players’ Club tournament series. If you have any questions or concerns regarding advanced player classes please contact Nick Johnson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 720-865-3422


Certification
At the end of all Par, Pardie, Girls Only, and Beagle classes, participants will take The First Tee Golf Skills Certification. Participants must pass the certification to move to the higher level class of Intro to Birdie or to join Players' Club. Emails were sent out after last session with certification results and recommended classes. If you did not receive an email or if your son or daughter is new to the program and you would like him or her to take a higher level class (Players' Club, Intro to Birdie, Birdie or Advanced Birdie class) please register for this FREE certification. 
 
This year's spring certification will be held at Wellshire Golf Course on March 11th at 11:00 a.m.
