These kids are on par with golf!
Kids ages 6 to 16 attended the free sports summer program at Marine Park on Avenue S and E. 32nd Street. Part of a citywide program sponsored by the City Parks Foundation, the program — with sessions available for golfers of all skill levels — runs until August and gives kids a chance to get active and feel good.
“She liked feeling accomplished when it went into the hole,” said Sara Evenhar, whose 6-year-old daughter Eliette sent a golf ball soaring into the cup.
Golf Instructor Steve Schreiber, who has played golf since he was 10 years old, said it’s a great game for all ages.
“It’s a game you can play from your childhood until your old age,” said Schreiber.
And kids don’t have to worry about bringing their own equipment — it’s provided.
One golfer is already geared up for next time.
“She can’t wait for the next class,” said Evenhar.
The program includes more than 60 parks throughout New York City and also features tennis and track and field in some locations.
