Albany- It won't be long before kids are putting their way onto Albany's newest golf course. The par three course behind the Civic Center run by The First Tee Albany is right on schedule for a September first opening.

There are still things to do, a new fence will be built around the property and a shed will be constructed to hold maintenance equipment, but the grass is coming in nicely, thanks to all of the recent heavy rains.

"We have sod already grown in, it's ready to be cut actually and on the other side of thing, we actually sprigged the rest of it. Sprigs take a little longer to grow in, it's just a matter of keeping water on it and keeping it fertilized," said Durante Kirby, Executive Director, First Tee Albany.

The course will be used to teach children life enhancing skills, including confidence, courtesy, honesty, and integrity through the game of golf. Classes will be held after school and on Saturday's. The course will also be open to the public.
