Pitch n Putt concessionaire Kelley Brooke led a group of volunteers from the New York City Police Department and the Executive Women’s Golf Association and showed the girls how to pitch, chip and putt golf balls. “I don’t think any of them have played golf until today,” said Brooke, who was pleased to host the event. The girls were also treated to a barbecue and refreshments.
