First Tee—Greater Philadelphia manages the John F Byrne Golf Club to provide affordable access to golf and life skills education for the kids in northeast Philadelphia. First Tee saved the course from permanently closing for good so that kids and the community can be best served. Having a facility where students and golfers have access 364 days a year is paramount to enhance learning, skills, and recreational resources for people of all backgrounds.
We are excited to announce our plans for the future including a renovated clubhouse with an indoor classroom and simulator designed by Kimmel Bogrette Architecture + Site, and a First Tee Practice area designed by Ernie Els Design Team. Through generous support from donors, these plans will become a reality. John F. Byrne Golf Club will be a true asset for kids and all public golf.
