“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."

Jack Deaner, YOC alumni
“Youth on Course opened up my eyes to a side of golf, beyond the course, that I didn’t even know existed. It is because of this that I’ve been blessed with many opportunities and made connections with individuals that other kids my age, in general, would dream to have connections with.”
Jaylyn Robinson, YOC Alumni
