New Opportunities at Homework & Hitting in 2015!  

Maple Hill GC

  • Located in southwest Grand Rapids, Maple Hill hosted over 100 of our participants in 2015.  Now, we’re partnering with them for their fantastic indoor facilities.
  • Students in the Par, Birdie, or Eagle levels at The First Tee have access every Tuesday to one of two areas:
  • Indoor simulator: Our participants are using two simulators, playing on a course on one, while working on their swing in the other.


  • Heated hitting bays
  • When the snow flies, our participants will still be able to hit outside in Maple Hill’s heated hitting bays.
  • For more on this program, contact Program Director Nick Holtrop – nick@thefirstteewestmichigan.org


This space is open to Par, Birdie, and Eagle participants every Friday afternoon throughout the winter. Coach Tom Koert partners with Nick Holtrop and Tyler Smies from The First Tee staff to provide swing instruction to up to 10 kids every Friday.RcM
