First Tee Jersey Shore Hosts Tournament to Help Local Kids
First Tee, like many other non-profits in Ocean and Monmouth County are hurting due to Covid-19.
First Tee's program is available to all children and youth ages 4 -17, at the Jersey Shore, Ocean and Monmouth Counties. Clubs and other equipment are provided by The First Tee if needed. Golferships are available for anyone in financial need and they will not turn a child away due to financial hardship. Golf skills are taught under direction of The First Tee trained coaches.
Golf has become such a popular sport for girls and boys.
First Tee's Annual Golf Fundraiser is set for August 4th, 2020, according to the patch.com at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson Township. Like many nonprofit organizations, First Tee is hurting from a loss of revenue because of program cancellations and delays because of Covid-19 - First Tee is committed to ensuring that all youth have access to its programs, Director Tara Kelly says.
The Golf Fundraiser begins at 8 am for registration, breakfast, and practice on the range/putting green with tee-times starting at approximately 9 am, at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson Township. Golfers will enjoy a lunch and a dinner reception. CLICK HERE to resgister as a player or to be a sponsor or call 732 - 300 - 1130.
