Winter at First Tee – West Michigan

It’s been a whirlwind of a winter so far at First Tee but we’re excited to offer three different program options for your participants! Check out all of your options for the remainder of winter.

Option 1: Virtual Homework & Hitting

First Tee will be offering a free weekly virtual hour for the Par, Birdie, Eagle and Ace Levels for ALL communities (Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon, and Kalamazoo).  The program will be LIVE, with a coach, and other First Tee participants.  Students will learn about a value, a golf skill, and participate in trivia against other participants! This is FREE to all participants.

Register here to receive our scholarship rate ($5.00). scholarships are available to students eligible for free/reduced price lunch at school or families experiencing financial hardship due to covid-19.

Timing doesn’t work? Ask Coach Taylor (taylor@firstteewestmichigan.org) for assignments following the session to get additional hours in toward registration!

Option 2: In-Person Homework & Hitting

Click here to view our Indoor Participant Health & Safety Guidelines

Students who participate are encouraged to bring any school-work but it is not required to participate.  After students wrap up their homework, they can play putting or chipping games with other students, or work on their swing in the set-up hitting nets.  Coaches are there to help students excel in both schoolwork and their golf game.

Cost is $70 for participants to cover the in-person session. Scholarship participants receive programming for $5. When registering online, you will not be asked to pay. We will be sending invoices for in-person winter programming to be sure no one is overcharged.

We will only offer in-person H&H at our offices in Grand Rapids for the remainder of this winter season.

Option 3: Open Hitting

To allow our participants to get out of the house and work on their game these upcoming weeks, we are offering family Open Hitting at two locations this winter, for one-hour blocks. Families will be able to pre-register in one-hour blocks to use hitting nets, putting, and simulators at our locations.  ONLY one family per hour will be allowed, and masks will be required, and a survey ensuring no contact with the coronavirus will be required upon entry. Parents, younger siblings, and those not in the program are welcome to use the space with the First Tee participant during the hour.  Access is FREE to all First Tee families! Get out and get some swings in!
