THE LINKS AT MASS GOLF

The Links at Mass Golf is an 18-hole, par 3 facility located in Norton and it is the home of The First Tee of Massachusetts. The facility has been owned and operated by Mass Golf since 2003.

As one of the only state golf associations to have an ownership stake in a golf course, Mass Golf is demonstrating its commitment to growing the game by providing various learning and playing opportunities at The Links at Mass Golf for players of all ages and abilities.

As the home of The First Tee of Massachusetts, The Links at Mass Golf provides many instructional programs for junior golfers throughout the year. From spring and summer programs to after-school opportunities, the staff at The Links at Mass Golf continues to introduce children of all ages to the game of golf by providing programs that focus on fun and making sure everyone enjoys the game.

In 2016, The First Tee of Massachusetts received a generous donation from the John D. Mineck Foundation. That support has allowed the program to grow and impact more youth.
