TEE OFF WITH CITY PARKS FOUNDATION’S FREE SUMMER GOLF LESSONS IN BRONX PARKS
Still Time to Sign-Up for CityParks Golf Program
Throughout August, young people can still take advantage of City Parks Foundation’s free golf lessons in parks throughout the Bronx. The second session of CityParks Golf presented by René Lacoste Foundation begins on August 1st and runs through August 26th at Pelham Bay Park and Haffen Park in the Bronx.
CityParks Golf presented by René Lacoste Foundation makes it fun and easy for boys and girls, ages six to 16, to learn to play golf. The free golf lessons and use of equipment, held in public parks and on citywide courses, makes the sport of golf accessible to kids of all skill levels throughout New York City. The goal of the program is not only to teach the basics of the sport, but also to develop self-esteem, discipline and sportsmanship. The program gives kids a chance to improve their skills and ultimately try out for the CityParks Intermediate Program and Junior Golf Academy–specialized programs for dedicated young golfers available at the CityParks Junior Golf Center, a facility in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn that also offers programming for new or first-time youth golfers from New York City.
