Who We Are

Ensuring all young people have access to life-changing opportunities through golf.

Our Story

Youth on Course, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was established in 2006 to break down financial barriers and bring diversity to the world of golf. 

The groundbreaking program began when a junior golfer passionate about the game, but unable to afford greens fees, walked into Poppy Hills in California and with excitement played the first round of golf underwritten by the Morton family.


Our Purpose

The core purpose of Youth on Course is simple, yet transformative: provide youth with access to life-changing opportunities through golf. We make this possible by ensuring members have access to play rounds of golf for $5 or less, while also offering opportunities to succeed through college scholarships, mentorships, internships, and leadership development, all while forging lifelong connections.
