Thank you for your interest! Unfortunately, Youth on Course hasn’t expanded to your region yet. Subscribe to our expansion newsletter and you will be the first to know when we come to your area!

  • Let us know which state you live in so we can continue expanding to your area!

Becoming a Youth on Course member is easy and affordable, and memberships are good for a calendar year.

In order to join, you must have participating courses in your area and be at least 6 years old, but not yet in college.

After signing up, you’ll complete a brief curriculum which gets you a membership card. From there, you can hit the links!

By becoming a member, you’re also securing membership into your local state and regional golf association, which gives you the ability to play tournaments and establish a handicap. Score!

Are you a member of the first tee?

Guess what? You likely already have a Youth on Course membership! If you are in a First Tee chapter in one of our participating regions, please contact your chapter about your Youth on Course membership and they should be able to get you squared away.
