Play Golf for $5 or Less!
What is Youth on Course?
Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation – a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, the program was thriving and we expanded opportunities for our members to include a caddie program, paid high school internships and college scholarships. Youth on Course operates as a separate 501(c)3 that partners with state and regional golf associations across the country.
To date, they have expanded to 38 regions, subsidized more than 975,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 200 interns and 735 caddies, and award $250,000+ in scholarships annually.
What They Do
Youth on Course gives members access to golf for $5 or less at more than 1,200 participating courses, but it doesn’t end there. Members are set up for success beyond the green through their caddie program, paid high school internships, and college scholarships.
How to Get Involved
Becoming a Youth on Course member is easy and affordable, and memberships are good for a calendar year. In order to join, you must be at least 6 years old. Membership expires on your 19th birthday. After signing up, you’ll complete a brief curriculum which gets you a member number. From there, you can hit the links!
Guardian Management / Digital Profile
SINCE GOLFERS UNDER THE AGE OF 13 CANNOT SUPPLY AN EMAIL ADDRESS, HOW CAN THEY HAVE THEIR SCORES POSTED?
A minor will need to be tied to a guardian’s account within the USGA Admin Portal. In January 2021, the guardian will see a “Change Golfer” link when logging in to the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com. Here the guardian can change who they are posting scores for. A Club Admin can also post a score on behalf of a minor via the USGA Admin Portal.
IF A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 13 HAS A GUARDIAN THAT IS NOT A GOLFER AND DOES NOT HAVE A GHIN NUMBER, HOW WILL THEY CREATE A DIGITAL PROFILE?
If a minor has a “non-golfing” Guardian who does not have a GHIN Number, the Guardian can still create a digital profile to access ghin.com and the GHIN Mobile App on behalf of the minor. The Guardian will need to supply their last name and email address when verifying their information in the Create Profile section of ghin.com and the GHIN Mobile App. They will then need to login with their email address since they do not have a GHIN Number.
