Player Development Academy
The goal of First Tee – Greater Richmond’s Player Development Academy powered by Op36 is to shoot even par on 9-holes. By working from green to tee-box versus the traditional tee-box to green it lowers the challenge point and is a motivating way to learn and progress in the sport. Learn more.
