Youth on Course | Opportunities

Opportunities

All Youth on Course members have access to college scholarships. Northern California members have access to additional opportunities, like the caddie program and paid high school internships. The goal is to extend these opportunities to additional regions in the near future.

Internships

Youth ages 14-18 in Northern California can gain meaningful work experience at local golf courses and clubs, make some money, and build a resume. Internships are a great way to learn more about the golf industry, make important contacts and to grow as an individual.

Caddie Academy

Youth ages 14-18 are eligible to participate in the Caddie Academy. If selected, you will attend an orientation. Caddies make their own work schedule using an app that allows you to pair up with golfers who need caddies. Youth on Course Caddies earn $50 per loop.

Scholarships

Youth on Course provides access to higher education by awarding annual college scholarships. Scholarships are based on need and merit.

The 2018 College Scholarship applications have closed. Please check back next year!

Caddie Academy

Youth ages 14-18 who are eligible for employment can apply for our Caddie Academy, and, if selected, complete an orientation at the club in group sessions. Individual caddies make their own work schedule using an app called CaddieNow (based on their availability and when the golf courses need caddies). Golfers pay caddies, and Youth on Course also pays the caddie through the app. Caddies to College earn an additional $50 into a college scholarship fund after every loop.
