The City Parks Foundation is offering free golf lessons to kids in New York City this August, at East River Park and Eugene McCabe Field in Manhattan.
Throughout August, young people can still take advantage of City Parks Foundation's free golf lessons in parks throughout Manhattan. The second session of CityParks Golf presented by René Lacoste Foundation begins on August 1 and runs through August 26 at East River Park and Eugene McCabe Field in Manhattan.
CityParks Golf makes it fun and easy for boys and girls, ages 6-16, 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.
