Mike Basney’s Memorial – DONATE HERE

The First Tee of Indiana-Michiana offers scholarships to kids on a need basis. Our goal as a community is to ensure every kid has a place to learn, have fun, and cultivate friendships. If you want to apply for a scholarship, please fill out the application and submit to Luci Ross at lross@indianagolf.org.


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 (jzimmerman@indianagolf.org) to talk more about how you can get involved.

As a volunteer, you will be looked upon as a model of The First Tee’s Nine Core Values: Honesty, Integrity, Perseverance, Judgment, Responsibility, Respect, Courtesy, Confidence, and Sportsmanship.  In addition, you will be identified as a trustworthy, caring adult.
