John Vollbrecht, FlyingTee CEO, said details are still being worked out, but the agreement "would give their kids a different way to practice and enjoy the game. We support the First Tee mission of growing the game and we can help it be a fun learning experience."
"We’re thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this program," Vollbrecht said. "The First Tee of Tulsa has done a great job of positively impacting the lives of young Tulsans over the years by sharing important core values and life skills which are important to both golf and life."
"We are thrilled about our partnership with the FlyingTee," said Janice Gibson, executive director of the First Tee of Tulsa.

The advanced technology at the Flying Tee will enhance our STEM ( Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics) program and provide students valuable feedback for improving their golf game."

Each of FlyingTee’s three floors will feature distinctly different restaurants. It will also offer 60 state-of-the-art hitting bays with technology that is the first of its kind in Oklahoma.
