A YOC membership offers more than $5 rounds of golf. Learn about our opportunities beyond the green.
The Youth on Course Careers on Course program is designed to introduce youth from diverse backgrounds to career opportunities in golf and develop important skills that help them socially, academically, and in future employment.
Through this program, participants can develop their communication, teamwork and time management skills, while working at a local golf course, company or association. Participants may work in a golf shop, be trained and work as a caddie, join the outside services team, work in food and beverage/catering, membership, marketing and more.
We pair participants with the right opportunity based on individual skills and interests.
*Note: The Caddie portion of this program is currently only offered in Northern California, Kentucky, and Bandon, Oregon. Caddies are paid by the loop and scheduling is flexible. This is a great opportunity to earn money and meet new people while walking beautiful golf courses.
Discover your leadership potential through the Youth on Course Leadership Council
The YOCLC is a group of highly motivated YOC members who work together to increase YOC's impact across the country. It also provides a channel for YOC members to have a voice in matters that affect them.
2023 applications are now closed and will reopen in advance of the next school year.
We created DRIVE Club in partnership with TaylorMade to identify, foster, and support diverse young golfers on their journey with the game, and to allow YOC members to share their expertise and experiences with their peers.
DRIVE Club members volunteer to lead groups of young beginner golfers on their first round of golf using a green-to-tee approach. In return, they receive service hours, mentorship, complimentary rounds of golf throughout the summer; TaylorMade swag, and opportunities to earn clubs, equipment, apparel, and more from TaylorMade and YOC.
Note: DRIVE Club is open to active YOC members ages 12 to 18.
