What is Youth on Course?

Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation as a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, it became apparent that there was a huge demand for the program outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity. Youth on Course operates as a separate 501(c)(3) that partners with allied golf associations across the country, including the Utah Golf Association.


How does it work?

In Utah, the Utah Golf Foundation (UGF), the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of the Utah Golf Association, funds Youth on Course (YOC) Utah. Participating golf courses offer rounds to youth ages 6 to 18 for $5 or less for nine holes, and the Utah Golf Foundation reimburses the courses the difference between their normal junior rate and their Youth on Course rate. The Utah Golf Foundation fundraises throughout the year for YOC Utah. Give to Youth on Course Utah HERE
