In 2014, The Barclays is proud to once again coordinate the TICKETS Fore CHARITY program. Designed to positively impact the communities where PGA TOUR tournaments are held, this unique fundraising opportunity allows local charitable organizations to partner with The Barclays in order to promote the sale of tournament tickets. 100 percent of the net proceeds from ticket sales are donated to charity.
In 2013, the fifth year for the program, TICKETS Fore CHARITY was again a tremendous success raising over $750,000 for over 100 charitable partners throughout metropolitan New York and New Jersey.
To learn more about this opportunity and get your non-profit involved, please contact Charlie Diamond at 201.444.5356 or via e-mail at CharlieDiamond@pgatourhq.com. The TICKETS Fore CHARITY program kicks off in April.

The First Tee of Essex County
In August of 2006, The First Tee of Essex County was formed through a partnership between the Metropolitan Golf Association, New Jersey PGA and New Jersey State Golf Association. Located at Weequahic Park Golf Course in the heart of Newark's South Ward, the organization converted a blighted former dumping site into a beautiful Junior Learning Facility to serve the youth of Essex County. This facility is a versatile practice area that can be used for short game instruction, a limited flight driving range and a three-hole short course to introduce youth people to the game and its positive values.
