These FREE golf lessons, held in public parks and on citywide courses, makes the sport of golf accessible to kids of all skill levels throughout New York City. Free use of equipment is available at all lessons. Registration is currently closed for CityParks Golf.
As with all City Parks Foundation kids sports programs, the emphasis is not only on learning the basics of a given sport, but also in developing self-esteem, discipline, and sportsmanship. The program gives kids a chance to develop their skills and try out for intermediate-level programs and ultimately the CityParks Junior Golf Academy - a free, specialized program for dedicated young golfers held our Junior Golf Center in Brooklyn.
SUMMER PROGRAM REGISTRATION
We bring golf right into your backyard transforming local ball fields into temporary driving ranges and practice greens. Kids who are new to the sport can learn the basic skills of the game, along with strategic thinking and patience.
CityParks Golf programs meet 2x weekly from July 5 - July 28
. The second session running July 31 - August 25 will be available for registration in June.
