IMPORTANT COVID 19 INFORMATION! PLEASE READ PRIOR TO REGISTERING!

Dear First Tee Families,

First Tee’s top priority is the health and safety of our participants, employees, and volunteers. We have been monitoring all available information related to the continued spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). After reviewing the relevant updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and state and local health departments, we deem it best to err with extreme caution.

It is our obligation to proactively put the health and safety of both youth and adults first and do our part to help minimize the spread of this virus and the impact it will have on our nation’s health system and our community. With our area moving into phase 4 of the 6 phase Michigan reopening plan, we have had to make some changes to our summer class schedule and operating procedures.

  1. We will not be conducting Target Level Classes at any of our program locations. We feel that it would be difficult for these young students (ages 5-6) to practice social distancing during class. If you have registered for summer 2020 classes, you will receive an email in the coming days outlining refund procedures.
  2. We have cancelled classes at Castle Creek and Lake Nepessing Golfland due to low registration numbers. If you have registered for summer 2020 classes at either location, you will receive an email in the coming days outlining refund procedures.
  3. Player 1 and Player 2 classes at Brookwood, Currie and Seifert’s will be limited to 16 students per class (4 players with 1 coach) with strict social distancing. Classes will be 1 hour in length with no classroom time. Yardage book homework will be delivered by email each week. We may need to modify class start times in summer 2020 and will send out an email notifying you of any changes.  Click here to see: Parent Programming Guidelines
  4. Par Level classes will be held at IMA Brookwood only and will be limited to 16 players in a class with strict social distancing. Classes will be 2 hours in length with no classroom time. Yardage book homework will be delivered by email each week. Please see the attached class guidelines.
  5. Birdie and Eagle Classes will be held at IMA Brookwood and will include strict social distancing. Students will get range time and play 9-holes each week. Yardage book homework will be delivered by email each week. Please see the attached class guidelines.
  6. Class schedule times are subject to change based on these limited class sizes. We will communicate these changes promptly if we decide to change class times.
  7. Please review the attached class guidelines. These guidelines are meant to keep everyone safe and healthy and will be strictly enforced.
  8. A Coronavirus Waiver would need to be signed prior to class starting. These will be made available to all families prior to the start of classes.

We understand that our summer classes will look and feel different this year. Please feel free to give us a call or send an email if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you back in class this summer. Check our website and/or our Facebook page for any updates or special events.

All the Best,
