Driving change and access with lasting impact.

Diversity, respect, inclusion, voice, and equity.

The DRIVE Club empowers Youth on Course members to introduce their peers to golf by guiding them during their first rounds. Using a green-to-tee approach, new golfers can actually play golf from the start and enjoy all of the things avid golfers love: being outdoors, socializing, developing new skills, and building relationships.

For many young people, the barrier that keeps them from giving golf a try is not having a knowledgeable friend or family member to introduce them to the game and mentor them along the way. Junior golfers are the most diverse demographic within the sport so there’s no one better equipped to introduce more youth of color to golf.

By actively participating in the DRIVE Club, Youth on Course members gain access to fully subsidized rounds of golf and community service hours. This is made possible when they share their expertise and experiences by inviting their peers to join them on the course. The invitees not only witness firsthand the transformative opportunities offered by Youth on Course but are also encouraged to become members themselves.

As an extension of the DRIVE Club, Youth on Course established Community Hubs that are strategically located in major urban centers. The hubs offer DRIVE Club members a welcoming place for underserved youth to gain access to free TaylorMade rental equipment, knowledgeable and caring mentors and peer-to-peer support.
