Golf Course Programs


In 2021, First Tee – Indiana hosted 160+ class sessions at 55 golf courses with over 3,000 youth participating. First Tee Playing Leagues were offered at seven locations throughout the summer months as well. We have something for everyone! Below are some common questions that parents ask while preparing to register. When you are ready, click on the links to the location page to find the schedule of class sessions nearest to you. All registrations will close the evening before the first class takes place. If you would like to join the class after the registration has closed, please contact the coach and ask if you may register on site at the first class.


First Tee – Indiana 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, you will have the option to do so during the on-line registration process. Any questions, please contact Luci Ross at [email protected].
