Youth on Course:
New Branding, Same Purpose
Youth on Course unveiled a new look to amplify the same purpose – providing affordable golf for kids 6-18. The national organization – which works locally with the JGAA to subsidize green fees – is celebrating the popularity of this money-saving program through a weeklong, Aug. 10-14, re-branding launch featuring daily messages such as values, community, learning and relationships.
Green Fees of $5 or Less at 26 Arizona Courses
Youth on Course offers $5 (or less) green fees for its 90,000 members across 1,400 golf courses nationwide. To date, 26 Arizona facilities (listed below) – primarily in Phoenix and Tucson – participate in the program, and as of August 2020, local members played 6,919 rounds, an incredible number considering 3,927 total rounds were logged in all of 2019.
“Youth on Course has been steadily growing since it began and really picked up momentum,” said Scott McNevin, executive director of the JGAA. “It’s included with JGAA and Girls Golf of Phoenix membership, and kids can also choose the Youth on Course-only option. Either way, the low cost makes it realistic to play more often. The extra rounds help everyone from top players sharpening their games to recreational junior golfers just having fun with family and friends.”
