The First Tee of Indiana-Michiana offers needs-based scholarships. Our goal is to ensure every young person has a place to play and learn, have fun, and cultivate friendships. The application for a scholarship, is available while registering for a class. Please contact Luci Ross at lross@indianagolf.org with any questions.


The First Tee relies heavily on the help of volunteers to run our programs. While many opportunities relate to golf, we have opportunities off the course as well. Contact Jenny Zimmerman at jzimmerman@indianagolf.org to talk more about how you can get involved.  Our volunteers are caring, trustworthy adults that model of The First Tee’s Nine Core Values: Honesty, Integrity, Perseverance, Judgment, Responsibility, Respect, Courtesy, Confidence, and Sportsmanship.
