The First Tee of Battle Creek is local chapter of an international youth development organization that introduces the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. The First Tee of Battle Creek is located at and offered in partnership with Binder Park Golf Course.
The First Tee of Battle Creek welcomes boys and girls of all ages and walks of life to join the fun and experience golf at The First Tee Learning Academy. No experience is necessary! Tiny Tot and Target classes are available for children 3 – 6. Youth ages 7 – 17 participate in the First Tee Life Skills curriculum and certification levels where they are introduced to The First Tee Nine Core Values like honesty, integrity, respect, and perseverance and The First Tee Nine Healthy Habits as they learn course rules, etiquette and skills needed to play the game of golf.
Participants will learn the fundamentals of the game including, grip and stance for irons and woods, and will have plenty of hands-on experience with full swing and short game (chipping and putting). Information on junior leagues, tournaments, and national participant opportunities are available at The First Tee of Battle Creek.
