Each month The First Tee of ENC will be focusing on teaching the youth one of the following Nine Core Values:
 
Nine Core Values
 
The First Tee has established Nine Core Values that represent some of the many inherently positive values connected with the game of golf.  These Nine Core Values have been incorporated into The First Tee Experience and have been used to name golf holes at several of The First Tee facilities.
 
Honesty - the quality or state of being truthful; not deceptive

Golf is unique from other sports in that players regularly call penalties on themselves and report their own score.

Integrity - strict adherence to a standard of value or conduct; personal honesty and independence

Golf is a game of etiquette and composure.  Players are responsible for their actions and personal conduct on the golf course even at times when others may not be looking.
 
Sportsmanship - observing the rules of play and winning or losing with grace
 
Players must know and abide by the rules of golf and be able to conduct themselves in a kind and respectful manner towards others even in a competitive game.
 
Respect - to feel or show deferential regard for; esteem

In golf it is important to show respect for oneself, playing partners, fellow competitors, the golf course, and for the honor and traditions of the game.
 
Confidence - reliance or trust. A feeling of self-assurance
 
Confidence plays a key role in the level of play that one achieves.  Players can increase confidence in their abilities by being positive and focusing on something they are doing well regardless of the outcome.

Responsibility- accounting for one’s actions; dependable
 
Players are responsible for their actions on the golf course.  It is up to them to keep score, repair divots, rake bunkers, repair ball marks on the green, and keep up with the pace of play.
 
Perseverance - to persist in an idea, purpose or task despite obstacles
To succeed in golf, players must continue through bad breaks and their own mistakes, while learning from past experiences.
 
Courtesy - considerate behavior toward others;a polite remark or gesture

A round of golf should begin and end with a handshake between fellow competitors. Players also should be still and quiet while others are preparing and performing a shot.
 
Judgment - the ability to make a decision or form an opinion; a decision reached after consideration

Using good judgment is very important in golf. It comes into play when deciding on strategy, club selection, when to play safe and when to take a chance, the type of shot players consider executing, as well as making healthy choices on and off the golf course.

The First Tee of Eastern North Carolina wishes to thank the staff and members of The Emerald Golf Club for allowing us this opportunity to utilize your facility as we mentor the future leaders of our community.
