About Us

The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties has its main facility at Colonial Terrace Golf Course, 1003 Wickapecko Drive in Ocean Township, NJ - a regulation, nine-hole municipal golf course operated by the Township of Ocean. The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties was formed in 2005 as Jersey Shore Junior Golf. Since that time it has served hundreds of youngsters in the two counties. It became a Chapter of The First Tee in March 2008. The First Tee learning facility at Colonial Terrace Golf Course includes 8 hitting stalls, a target green, a practice putting and chipping green and driving cages. The organization’s office is located in the golf course’s clubhouse. The course was built in the 1920’s and has been beautifully restored by the Township and re-opened in May 2008. Nearly every golfer in the area reports that Colonial Terrace Golf Course is where they first learned the game. The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties serves all children, ages 8 -17, who live in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Part of its 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 its programs that can be waived if it presents a barrier to participation. The activity fee allows members to utilize the golf courses, Learning Center, and enters them into The First Tee Life Skills Program and pays for their Life Skills materials. For more details about our facility and programs, please contact our offices at (732) 759-2170 or e-mail us at info@thefirstteemonoc.org.
