Respect – To feel or show deferential regard for. At First Tee – NWA we teach our kids to show respect for others, themselves, and their surroundings on and off the golf course. You can show respect for others today by not talking while they are hitting.

Judgment – the ability to make a decision or form an opinion; a decision reached after consideration. Having good judgment on the golf course is critical. At First Tee – NWA we teach kids to use good judgment when deciding what club to hit and where to stand while someone else is hitting.

Sportsmanship – observing the rules of play and winning or losing with grace. No one likes a sore loser, but we all like friendly competition. Golf is often called the “Gentleman and Lady’s Game” because sportsmanship is so ingrained in the sport. To show good sportsmanship to your competitors, remove your hat and shake their hand after the completion of your round today.

Courtesy – considerate behavior toward others; a polite remark or gesture. It is important to remain still and quiet while your competitors are getting ready to swing and hitting their shot. The way we treat others at First Tee – NWA, especially on the golf course, follows the Golden Rule of treating them the way you would like to be treated.

Honesty – the quality or state of being truthful; not deceptive. Golf is unique from other sports because players call penalties on themselves and report their own scores. There are no referees or umpires in golf. It is up to you to be honest with yourself and your competitors on the golf course. Remember, every time you are attempting to hit the ball counts as a stroke, be honest.
