About the Indiana Golf Foundation
Established in 1994 as a shared vision of the Indiana Golf Association and the Indiana Section PGA, the Indiana Golf Foundation (IGF) is dedicated to affording young people the opportunity to learn the game of golf and the life lessons it teaches. The Foundation is funded by both private and corporate contributions, and due to this generosity, juniors are able participate in our programs with minimal, to no fees. The Foundation consists of the Indiana Junior Tour, the Gongaware Junior Academy, The First Tee of Indiana, the Indiana Golf Hall of Fame and scholarship programs.
About The First Tee of Indiana
Based on the fact that the Indiana Golf Foundation has long operated under the theme of ‘Teaching Life Lessons Through the Game of Golf,’ it made perfect sense to incorporate The First Tee of Indiana under the IGF umbrella. The First Tee of Indiana began with programming locations in Indianapolis and Richmond and has now reached over 30,000 Indiana youth through National School Programs and green-grass programming. We currently have program locations in Richmond, Bloomington, Columbus, Michiana and South Central (Dubois, Orange, Crawford & Harrison counties) Indiana.
