First Tee – Met New York
Building Game Changers

In August of 2006, First Tee – Metropolitan New York opened a campus at Weequahic Park. A partnership was formed with FTMNY, Metropolitan Golf Association, the New Jersey PGA, the New Jersey State Golf Association, and the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs. Located in the heart of Newark’s South Ward inside Weequahic Park, our facility is adjacent to the historic Weequahic Golf Course. FTMNY converted a blighted former dumping site into a beautiful outdoor Junior Learning Facility to serve the youth of Essex County and surrounding towns. This outdoor space offers a versatile practice area that can be used for short game instruction, limited flight driving range, or as a three-hole short course to introduce youth people to the game and its positive values. In March of 2012, an indoor Junior Learning Facility was added as an extension of the Weequahic Golf Course Clubhouse to operate year-round. Inside, our First Tee classroom setting offers an ideal space to teach our life skills curriculum as well as SAT Prep classes and Individual Tutoring sessions. Stay tuned for more information on our program delivery at Hendricks Field Golf Course!

Directions to Weequahic

If you are using a navigation system, it is best to input the intersection of Elizabeth Avenue and Grumman Avenue and turn into the Weequahic Park. You will pass a maintenance building at the corner on your right, continue to go straight and you will make a right into the Weequahic Park Golf Course parking lot. As you approach the building, First Tee of Essex County is the first door on your left across from the putting green. The second door is the Weequahic Park Golf Course clubhouse entrance, but you can come through either entrance as our indoor facility is adjoined with the clubhouse.
