The junior golf course was dedicated to Norman Kritz, chairman of the MABGA, who has designed and constructed NYISE’s golf course, as well as similar courses around the United States for blind or visually impaired people. The MABGA volunteers provided the necessary materials for golf, including the putting greens, holes and sets of golf clubs.. The golf course will be utilized by students in physical education classes and the residential program for years to come.
