About Us – JUNIOR GOLF IN MICHIGAN!
First Tee Eastern Michigan’s offices and home-site are located at IMA Brookwood Golf Club in Burton, Michigan. Our facility features 18-holes of golf, two putting greens, a short game practice area, driving range, pro-shop and banquet facilities.
First Tee Eastern Michigan started out as a local junior golf program run by the IMA Recreation Association (IMARA) and IMA Brookwood Golf Club. Thanks to the efforts of the staff and board of directors of the IMARA, we were granted our chapter license in December of 2013. Currently we offer summer programs in Genesee, Lapeer, Midland, Saginaw and Tuscola counties. First Tee Eastern Michigan is a program of the IMA Recreation Association with an Advisory Board that oversee the operations of the program. Please see our Advisory Board Members listed below.
Junior Golfers ages 5-18 can join First Tee Eastern Michigan summer programs that include 5-weeks of lessons and Life Skills curriculum, golf balls, course materials and end of season tournament and banquet.
