Accordia Golf Co., Ltd. Regular events for children at Accordia Golf! “The First Tee Program” to learn life skills through golf The program theme is “honesty” …………………………………………………………………………………………… Accordia Golf Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, Chairman and President and CEO: Yuko Tashiro) is a program of “The First T” aimed at supporting the sound personality development of children through golf. The event was held on Saturday, September 28 at the Sobu Country Club (Hachioji City, Tokyo) with 22 children participating. In this day’s program, I learned about “honesty” while enjoying activities.
On this day, I learned “honesty” of Nine Core Values “The First T” was born in the United States in 1997 and is an educational program with more than 15.5 million participants worldwide. Nine core values such as “courtesy”, “confidence” and “sportsmanship” will be learned from the program.

Which is closer? Report your own score ”Honest” is the theme of the program at the Sobu Country Club on Saturday, September 28th. With a total of 19 coaches and assistant coaches certified by the program, we conducted activities for about 2 hours. In games and courses on the putting green, we were able to count the number of hits and tell them honestly. This is a lesson where you learn the life skills of “honesty” through the unique rules of golf, where you are the referee and you declare a penalty yourself if you violate the rules. You can apply what you have learned here, such as at school and at home, in places other than golf courses.
Pair with your friends for a mini round In the future, we will continue to hold program events regularly in various places in order to increase the chances that as many children as possible can enjoy playing in the wilderness while playing golf.
