Young Golfers Invited to Mosholu Golf Course

Tomorrow, young golfers are invited to visit the Mosholu Golf Course, at 3545 Jerome Ave., to help improve their golfing skills and make the course more environmentally sustainable.

Through a campaign sponsored by the PGA Tour, FedEx, Audubon International and The First Tee of Metropolitan New York Program, the FedExCup Fore!Ever Campaign teaches young golfers about sustainable golf practices while helping to make Mosholu, and other courses, more eco-friendly.

Mosholu Golf Course was one of six courses awarded environmental improvement grants which will result in the planting of native trees and plant species as well as the eradication of invasive plants.

Tomorrow, as well as playing golf, children will help plant trees and ferns.

Mosholu, the only golf course in the city to receive a grant, hosts the First Tee Metropolitan New York program, whose mission, according to its website, is to “impact the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf”.

For more information, please call (718) 655-9164.


  1. Wait a minute... the future of this golf course is that it will be on top of a filtration plant that was blasted into the ground destroying 50 acres of a park. It's TOTALLY artificial. How in God's name is it receiving an eco-friendly award? In fact, as it stands now, this "course" is a temporary one carved out of a natural woodlands. This is beyond fishy!

  2. i should amend that it's the driving range for this course that's temporary and will permanently be on top of the filtration plant. But that does not change my outrage at this eco-recognition.
