WELCOME
Founded in 2008 by Bo and Bob Van Pelt, The First Tee of Indiana-Richmond is currently impacting over 200 Richmond youth ages 7-18. The Bo Van Pelt/Cross Learning Center at Glen Miller Driving Range is home to our practice facility. In addition to a driving range and three hole par three course, we have our own building with access to a kitchen, computers, and learning space. Our eight-week classes cost $25 and start June 15th. Find out more information about what we are doing on our Facebook Page.

SCHOLARSHIPS
The First Tee of Indiana-Richmond 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 would like to apply for financial assistance, you will have the option to do so during the on-line registration process. For further questions, please contact Luci Ross at lross@indianagolf.org

VOLUNTEERING

As a nonprofit, we rely on volunteers to help run our programs. We currently have 17 summer volunteers who help deliver our green-grass Certifying Program. Along with teaching golf skills, our volunteers act as mentors to our participants. As a volunteer, you will be looked upon as a trustworthy, caring adult who models The First Tee’s Nine Core Values: Honesty, Integrity, Perseverance, Judgment, Responsibility, Respect, Courtesy, Confidence, and Sportsmanship.  Please use the above VOLUNTEER button for more information.
