A $15 CGA / Youth on Course membership allows junior golfers ages 6-18 can play at over 50 participating courses in the Carolinas for $5.

Thanks to the generosity of the HV3 Foundation, the membership cost is just $15!  The HV3 Foundation was started in 2019 by then PGA Tour professional and North Carolina native Harold Varner, III.  Harold started this foundation to provide affordable access to youth in sports.
