About Us

In 2009 Plainfield Country Club became the first private country club to establish a First Tee Program. The First Tee of Plainfield program educates three hundred children ranging in age from 5 to 17 from Edison, Elizabeth, Newark and Plainfield. Among the many proud traditions of Plainfield Country Club, The First Tee is a vibrant symbol of PCC’s commitment to its local community.

The mission of our program is to impact the lives of young people, particularly those in need, by providing educational programs that build character, instill life enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.  We teach our children The First Tee NINE CORE VALUES –  Perseverance, Courtesy, Honesty, Integrity, Judgment, Confidence, Respect, Responsibility, and Sportsmanship for a lifetime.

The First Tee of Plainfield is proud to offer Path to College programs.  This innovative program provides children from 4th grade until they graduate from high school the tools and support to manage the college application process.  The First Tee education team delivers PSAT, SAT, ACT support, financial aid guidance and individual tutoring and financial aid guidance.
