Wisconsin State Golf Association Opens Youth on Course Registration
(PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.) – Wisconsin State Golf Association (WSGA) launches registration for Youth on Course – the organization providing affordable access to golf for young people by bringing rounds for “$5 or less” to golfers in the state.
All individuals ages 6-18 in this territory are eligible to join Youth on Course for a small annual fee and play the below courses for “$5 or less” per round. Funds raised by the WSGA will go toward round subsidies for facilities across the state who adopt the program. Additional courses will soon be added – with member cards sent to early registrants this month.

“Since 2011, the WSGA Foundation has provided over $200,000 to support high school and youth golf in Wisconsin,” says WSGA Executive Director Rob Jansen. “Partnering with Youth on Course enables the WSGA to further its commitment to increasing youth participation across the state.”
Having already finalized affiliations with five other golf associations in 2018 (Golf Association of Philadelphia, Colorado Golf Association, Greater Cincinnati Golf Association, Iowa Golf Association, Maryland State Golf Association), Youth on Course continues to gain momentum. Operating in every U.S. region, Youth on Course has upwards of 30,000 active members. Since 2006, juniors have completed 650,000 rounds.
In addition to promoting the game through affordable access to golf, more than 200 individuals have benefited from Youth on Course scholarships totaling $1.25 million in financial support. The current college scholarship retention rate is 98 percent, with 53 students already graduated from a four-year university.
