World Class Instruction At Your Finger Tips

Erika Larkin

​I was born and raised in Jackson Heights, New York (a.k.a. Queens).  I lived one block from the 7-Train. I could see the Empire State building from my black-topped roof, my six-story apartment building was in walking distance from LaGuardia Airport, and the closest thing to green space was the St. Joan of Arc School’s L-shaped parking lot that served as my bike route, roller-rink, tennis court and jungle-gym. No one in my family played golf.

My Dad is a Russian immigrant from Venezuela who became a top Executive Chef in New York. My Mom was raised by a single mother in Bridgeport Connecticut and did not have the means to pursue sports or activities growing up.  I was a first-generation city girl whose chances of ever being exposed to golf were slim-to-none.

Five subway stops away, we stumbled on "Pitch & Putt" in Flushing Meadows Park. I was eight years old and my adventurous parents and I — an only child —  decided on a whim to try our hand at golf.  The three of us spent two years playing in the shadow of Shea Stadium before ever stepping foot on a "real" course. When we did, we were hooked for good.
