If you don’t have a tee time booked today, there’s always tomorrow, weather permitting. And as the golf season rolls on into June, local golfers of all ages are swinging clubs in Philipstown. Barbara Holt of Cortlandt Manor recently headed back to the course after taking a hiatus from playing golf. “It’s been a few years since I’ve played regularly,” Holt said, as she prepared to play a round at Highlands Country Club, “and I’m getting back to the game.”

“They don’t have the attention span to sit for long lectures,” Spivak said. “We hand the kids clubs, and it’s very interactive. Sometimes, you may even see the kids tossing golf balls down the range. We let them have fun, which is what kids should be doing.”

Spivak will oversee two sessions of 2012 Junior Camp, from 9 ​a.m. to 1 p.m. July 16-19 and August 6-9. Camp rates run $325 for one week and $600 for two weeks. For registration information, call 845-424-4747.
