Fore! Santa stops by Dyker Heights Golf Course

Brooklyn Daily

Who knew that Santa golfed?

A magician, a choir, 400 kids, and one fat man from the North Pole came together for a day of fun and crafts on Sunday at the Dyker Beach Golf Course.

The event, a children’s day out at “Santa’s Holiday Workshop,” was held in the main ballroom of the clubhouse, and featured performances by a choir of students from First Visitation Academy, arts and crafts, and a magician.

But the reason for the season was the appearance of Mr. Claus.

“The highlight of the evening was Santa arriving on a golf cart,” said Jovi Offitto, the event promoter. “He came through the building on to the dance floor — and the kids just lost it.”

Students from Acting Out, a 15th Avenue acting school, performed a medley of musical favorites, covering “The Lion King,” “Mary Poppins,” and “Hair” in a blockbuster 15-minute performance.
