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


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 [email protected] to talk more about how you can get involved.  Our volunteers are caring, trustworthy adults that model of First Tee’s Nine Core Values: Honesty, Integrity, Perseverance, Judgment, Responsibility, Respect, Courtesy, Confidence, and Sportsmanship.
