    BEAUTIFULLY SIMPLISTIC. That’s how to describe Youth on Course’s beginnings, and with their growth, the core purpose has remained ideologically pure.

    All ABOUT ACCESS. Put simply, Youth on Course helps eliminate one of golf’s most significant barriers for young people, cost. Belonging to the YOC community gives members access to play nearly 2,000 golf courses across North America for $5 or less, along with benefits and opportunities that support their journey with the game.  Join the Community

    HOW IT WORKS. Whether it’s early morning, after school or twilight hours, our golf course partners offer up blocks of tee times throughout the week for YOC members to play for $5 or less. We subsidize the cost of our members’ rounds to keep the price tag affordable, sending more families through our partner courses’ doors.

    MEMBERSHIP.  Annual Membership in North/Central Florida is $20 and provides access to nearly 2,000 courses across North America. Join/Renew YOC Membership

    BECOME A COURSE. There is always a need for more participating courses.  Yours & One Other, in partnership with Youth on Course, provides a facility with an agreed-upon subsidy for each YOC round so youth can play for $5 or less.  To learn more, contact Brandon Roll at 

    About Youth on Course
    In 2006, Youth on Course began as a simple solution to a disconnect golf faced for juniors in Northern California. While youth programs had sprouted up and were successfully helping teach juniors the basics of the game, the cost to play prevented those same young golfers from being able to take their skills onto the course. 

    Fortunately, the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) developed a unique model for local kids. It started by giving them access to play Poppy Hills Golf Course, home of the NCGA, for just $5. 

    It didn’t take long for the NCGA to realize that they were on to something, and very quickly, they began to broaden their reach to other states. In 2020 Youth on Course, in partnership with Yours & One Other (Charitable affiliate of the North Florida PGA), launched in North and Central Florida. 

    With the help of passionate and generous individuals willing to give their time, energy, and money to benefit the lives of young people through golf, Youth on Course now serves more than 140,000 members in all 50 U.S. states and Canada who have access to play golf at nearly 2,000 courses across the US and Canada.
