WELCOME
Founded in 2008 by Bo and Bob Van Pelt, First Tee – Indiana in 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 7th. Find out more information about what we are doing on our Facebook Page.

SCHOLARSHIPS
First Tee – Indiana in 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
