Free Summer Sunday was a hole in one!

Brooklyn’s cultural institutions threw their doors open on Sunday in celebration of Heart of Brooklyn’s 10-year anniversary.

The group, which consists of a partnership between Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park and Prospect Park Zoo, provided special exhibitions and contests to the public at no charge.

Brooklynites could peruse the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection or wander through the Shakespearean herb garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for free on Sunday — or they could see all of them at once on a makeshift mini golf course at Grand Army Plaza.

Families practiced their putting skills on miniaturized versions of Brooklyn landmarks from noon to 5 pm.

The challenging course proved there is no greater thrill than making a hole in one after driving a golf ball over an eight-foot long Brooklyn Bridge — unless you drive a ball over the actual bridge.
