Youth on Course

Youth on Course gives juniors, ages 6-18, access to play golf for $5 or less at courses throughout the state.

The Texas Golf Association Foundation launched the Youth on Course program in the San Antonio area in 2020, and in 2021 expanded to include DFW and Austin. Today, the Youth on Course program is all over Texas giving juniors access to play golf for $5 or less at courses all over the state!

Youth on Course is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides youth with access to life-changing opportunities through golf. Members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs as juniors and be a part of an Alumni Network for those 19 and older. The Alumni Network offers opportunities for young adults to connect at complementary events, find jobs, and much more.

As the TGA Foundation works to broaden the reach of Youth on Course across the Lone Star State, it is looking for TGA Member Clubs to join their network and help support young people in their communities. Participating courses have complete control over what tee times will be available for Youth on Course members and typically include restrictions such as Twilight Only, Weekdays Only, any time after 12 p.m., etc. Participating courses receive a check each month of successful round submissions in the Youth on Course portal.
