Youth on Course members driving change

We created DRIVE Club in partnership with TaylorMade to identify, foster and support diverse young golfers on their journey with the game and to allow Youth on Course members to share their expertise and experiences with their peers.

Golf is becoming more diverse, but we believe the sport can evolve more rapidly by empowering young people to drive that change.

DRIVE Club empowers its members to introduce their peers to the sport by guiding them on their first rounds of golf. 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.

Note: DRIVE Club is open to active YOC members ages 12 to 18.
