How to obtain a Golf ID Card
The County of Essex requires each golfer to enroll with the County prior to using the automated tee time system. You may enroll in person at the Parks Department Golf ID Unit located at Essex County Hendricks Field Golf Course, 220 Franklin Avenue, Belleville. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 12 Noon on Saturday.
The County only will accept a valid New Jersey Driver's License with current address and one current utility bill (Telephone, PSE&G or Cable only) with the applicant's name on it. If bills are in a spouse's name, the applicant must show a copy of a marriage certificate.
Golfers must provide proof of residency annually when renewing their Golf ID card. Proof of residency is a valid New Jersey Driver's License and a current utility bill (Telephone, PSE&G or Cable only) with the applicant's name on it. If bills are in a spouse's name, the applicant must show a copy of a marriage certificate.
