The SCGA Youth on Course Golf Access program creates affordable access to golf for youth by establishing $1-$5 green and range fees at local golf facilities during off-peak hours. Participants are certified for the Golf Pass upon successful completion of a series of online quizzes that include golf rules, etiquette and decision making.
Through a partnership with the NCGA Foundation, Youth on Course is a statewide initiative. Both Foundations believe that golf teaches integrity, character and responsibility in a way that few other activities can match. With affordable access to golf, the game will continue to grow, but more importantly, youth will have the opportunity to experience the life skills that the game teaches on a regular basis.
