Golf Course Programs, Camps, and Lessons

One of the things we are most excited about with the Parks Department managing both Greenbelt and Par 3, is the ability for us to offer lessons and programs at a lower price than a private golf course might. Since we are always striving to fulfill the mission statement of our Department, we are confident that it will result in an increased variety of new opportunities available to the members of our community and to those traveling in to stay in Columbus and our County! Your Golf Pro will be available at both locations throughout the week and will be readily available to talk with you about any unique opportunities, in addition to those questions you might have for improving your personal game!

The First Tee Fundraiser Marathon (Flyer)
The First Tee of Indiana-Columbus would like your support in our First Annual Golf Marathon Day to support our First Tee programming efforts in the Columbus community. On September 19, 2017 our local golf professional, Keith VanDeventer, will be participating in a 72 hole golf marathon to raise money to support our First Tee program. We have created this support page in order to spread the word and bring awareness about how we are making a difference in our community! Please consider supporting our First Tee location by giving whatever you can using the ‘Give Now’ button for a flat pledge. You may also pledge your support for Keith by signing up at Greenbelt for any Birdie shots he makes and also pledging by the Hole. The more people that know about The First Tee of Indiana-Columbus the greater our impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
