The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties was founded in 2005 as Jersey Shore Junior Golf. We became a Chapter of The First Tee in March 2008. There are two main learning facilities - The First Tee learning facility at Colonial Terrace Golf Course and the First Tee/JR Smith Learning Center at Ocean County Park. The Colonial Terrace learning facility includes 8 hitting stalls, a target green, a practice putting and chipping green and driving cages. The First Tee/JR Smith Learning Center at Ocean County Park on the border of Brick/Lakewood is a 3 hole, junior size course that was completed in July 2014.
The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties serves all children, ages 7-17, who live in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Part of our mission is to reach out to youngsters who would not otherwise have the opportunity to learn the game of golf and its core values. There is a nominal fee for our programs that can be waived if it presents a barrier to participation. For more details about our facility and programs, please contact our offices at (732) 759-2170 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
