Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce

Competitive Programs

In addition to the regular instructional programs of The First Tee of Los Angeles, the following programs and opportunities are available to all enrolled members:

USGA GHIN Handicap Club:  The First Tee of Los Angeles was the first handicap club in Southern California specifically catering to juniors. Originally known as the Yippee Skippy Club, the club still offers junior golfers an official USGA Handicap for free. For information on how to join our club, contact TheFirstTeeLA@lajcc.org.

Team Play:  The Team Play League is The First Tee of Los Angeles’ competition series targeting the advanced golfers within our program.  The format of competition is Match Play using established or assigned indexes.  Matches will be played over nine holes.  Points won each week, as well as points earned for attendance and dress code, will be accumulated over the season.  USGA Rules apply except when specified by local rules or in the Team Play Handbook.  All current members of The First Tee of Los Angeles who have reached the BIRDIE level   or higher and all members of our TFTLA/LA County Junior Handicap Club who have an index 18.0 or lower are eligible.  PAR level golfers who are interested may be allowed to participate, but will be reviewed on an individual basis. Golfers MUST be able to walk and carry their own clubs over nine regulation golf holes.

Introduction to Competition Series:  The Introduction to Competition Series is designed for those with little or no competitive experience. It is all about providing our newest golfers a fun, positive experience on the golf course, as they enter the world of competitive golf. There will be 7 regular tournaments and an 8th “Champions” event. Participation in the “Champions” event is by invitation only.

Family Tournaments:  Adults are invited to participate in family tournaments each year.  In January, we offer the MLK Memorial Tournament; and in November, we offer the Turkey Shoot.  A two person team – comprised of one junior and one adult – join forces in a day of fun and family. There is also a junior/junior and junior/alumni flight.
