Your involvement can directly impact the kids we serve and the skills they develop in First Tee. Get involved today and help give kids the tools that will last them a lifetime.


How is my monetary donation used?

More than 40% of our young people are participating on a scholarship due to their families’ economic status. They receive programs for FREE! Here is how your donation can move the needle in the lives of young people.

Monetary Donations

Just 10% of our annual revenue comes from program fees.  We rely on individuals like yourself to make First Tee – West Michigan available to our young people!

Checks can be made out and sent to:

First Tee – West Michigan
118 Commerce Ave SW #400
Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Equipment Donation

Have some clubs that you don’t use or that don’t fit your kid anymore? Have some extra golf balls that haven’t been used in a while? Consider donating these items and more to First Tee – West Michigan for our students!

Participate in one of our events!

Golf Marathon

Do you love to play golf, and play golf quickly? Play as many holes as you can to support our kids at First Tee through our Annual Golf Marathon, typically in May-June, when the days have the highest amount of sunlight.

Players commit to raising $2,000 in pledges from their friends, family, and contacts.  Most pledges come in per-hole pledges ($1/hole) or flat donations ($100).  Last year, over 100 people participated!

Golf Outings

Long ball hitter who loves scrambles? Put together a team and play at our Annual Golf Outing, typically held at Thousand Oaks Golf Course on the last Monday in July.  We also hold an annual outing at Muskegon Country Club in August.  We’d love to have you join us!
