MORE THAN A SPORTS PROGRAM | The first tee of indiana
The First Tee of Indiana came under the Indiana Golf Foundation umbrella in 2012. With over 20 years of experience providing golf programs to Indiana youth, the Indiana Golf Foundation has established itself as a national leader in junior golf. In addition to the Indiana Golf Foundation’s mission to teach life lessons through the game of golf, The First Tee incorporates nine core values: honesty, respect, integrity, judgment, perseverance, courtesy, responsibility, sportsmanship, and confidence.
We currently have 15 program locations offering the Life Skills Experience Certifying Program and 225 elementary schools incorporating the National School Program into their physical education classes. From Michiana to Evansville, communities across the state are recognizing the impact The First Tee can have on their youth and opening their doors to this research-driven program.
