Golf Instruction

Professional LogoBrooklyn’s local PGA Professional Anthony Rodriguez is a native New Yorker who was inspired to take up golf at the age of sixteen after seeing an intriguing adolescent named Tiger Woods win the 1994 United States Amateur Championship. Like many young golfers, particularly those inspired by Mr. Woods, the game profoundly affected Anthony’s life both on and off the course.

Anthony knew almost immediately that he wanted to give back all that the game had given to him and after college accepted a prestigious internship opportunity with the PGA Tour in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Building on this momentum and his own dedication Anthony propelled himself into the golf business, navigating his way through nearly every aspect of the industry—for ten years he moved from public courses to private country clubs and resorts in the Southeastern United States building a resume of varied, unparalleled and invaluable experience.

After completing the PGA program he achieved PGA Class A membership status and earned his first Head Professional position in Maryland. A few years later an irresistible opportunity presented itself: The chance to come back to New York and contribute to the growth of The Metropolitan First Tee Program centered in Brooklyn and also manage both the Brooklyn Golf Center and Riis Park Golf Course.

Currently, Anthony is providing individual and group instruction at The Brooklyn Golf Center and Riis Park Golf Course as well as booking leagues and outings at our wonderful 18 hole par 3 lighted golf course.
