What our members and their families are saying
“Having Youth on Course was like a pressure valve release for our family. It meant a lot to know this program was there for us, and we could play a lot, and it would be affordable.”
“Memories like going to the course after school and playing until it was dark, or the maturity gained from getting dropped off at the course to play with a couple of random people 3 times my age and carrying a conversation with them for 4+ hours, contributed to the person I am today. I was provided with a love of the game that will last a lifetime thanks to Youth on Course."
