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. 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.
