A local middle school tee'd off their golf program Tuesday afternoon.
The students at Park Middle School enjoyed practicing their putting skills with the help of the First Tee program. The program is being funded through a grant the school received from McDonalds. The school was also given golf clubs from various people in the community. Teacher Angela Culicerto says golf is a game the kids can enjoy their entire life.
"The kids are very excited about it. The kids, for me. I want to make sure that they get a life ling sport experience. You know we can't play sports forever but things like golf and tennis, you can do forever so the exposure to that is very exciting to me and i think that it's very exciting for the kids to just learn something different."
The kids will have another opportunity to practice Thursday when they learn how to take a full swing.
