Thank you for your interest in First Tee – Indiana in Columbus. In 2016, we established a successful partnership with the Columbus Parks Department, which gave us a home base at the Rocky Ford Par 3 Golf Course. With help from the Parks Department and NSP teachers, we doubled our summer Certifying Program participants and expanded our reach in Columbus. This year’s eight-week classes will be led by PGA professional Keith VanDeventer and our certified assistant volunteer coaches.
Since 2013, the AJGA has hosted a junior tournament at Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus. The AJGA tournament committee selected the Columbus First Tee location as a beneficiary of this event and have donated more than $40,000 to First Tee – Indiana in Columbus. Find out more information about what we are doing in your community on our Facebook Page.
