Our Staff

We are fortunate to have a well trained and very dedicated executive staff, administrative staff and professional coaches. The team size is adequate for today’s programs, but as we grow we will address adding and right-sizing the team.  The Communications Intern position was added in 2016 with a focus on public relations and marketing as well as positively impacting our participants as a coach.  Staff offices are located in The First Tee of Benton Harbor Academy at Harbor Shores.

The First Tee of Benton Harbor coaches are trained to create positive relationships that inspire youth to discover their individual potential. Our programs help young people build confidence, develop respect and appreciate the value of giving back to our community all while learning the lifelong sport of golf.
