About Youth on Course

The core purpose of Youth on Course is to provide youth ages 6-18 with access to life-changing opportunities through golf. Members play hundreds of courses for $5 or less. Headquartered in Pebble Beach, Youth on Course is a 501(c)3 organization that began as the charitable arm of the Northern California Golf Association. Since 2006, nearly 650,000 rounds have been played by Youth on Course members and more than $1.25 million has been raised for college scholarships. Currently, Youth on Course serves Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin with the goal of delivering affordable golf in all 50 states by 2021.    

An important mission of golf associations in the Carolinas is to grow the game! The CGA, CPGA, SCGA, and WSCGA are committed to get juniors golfing at an affordable rate, across North Carolina and South Carolina. For the "Participating Courses," the associations recognize that the $5 fee from the junior golfer may not adequately cover the expense of the round so the associations subsidize participating courses for the remainder of the greens fee.


The Carolinas Youth on Course program allows our junior members an opportunity to play a round of golf for $5 at participating golf facilities.
