Baby and Kids
Want to introduce your little Tiger to a sport that he or she can enjoy for many decades to come? Let Kate Tempesta's Urban Golf Academy introduce your four- through 10-year-old to the game.
Their unique program utilizes age appropriate methods and equipment to teach children as young as four the proper skills, rules and etiquette of golf. Using modified equipment which was created specifically for newcomers to golf and is ideal for children, players will learn, practice and perfect the four basic shots. In a typical class, your young player will learn putting, chipping, pitching, and the full swing. Classes include lots of positive feedback and group Q&A, and the children also learn to do the little things like collecting all the balls when they're done.
The fall courses are held outside in Central Park. Students will work at various stations that act as the golf course. The KTUGA program not only promotes physical literacy needed in any sport, but also ensures that each child is actively engaged, having fun and developing a joy for the game of golf.
This Plum Deal gets you enrollment for your child in a fall course (four classes) at Kate Tempesta's Urban Golf Academy, running October 18 – November 12, for $80. Watch as your child learns the skills for a lifetime of challenging fun on the links.
