Youth on Course Membership Now Open
The Nebraska Golf Association is proud to announce the transition of its FORE! junior access program into Youth on Course. Though the FORE! brand will go away, the principles and benefits of junior access will remain with the new program.
Youth on Course is a similar junior access program that began in Northern California and has spread to nearly 30 regions in the United States over the past few years. The new program will bring improvements for both junior golfers and our participating facilities.
Youth on Course members in Nebraska will now be able to play year-round for $5 or less, and can also take their cards to any of the nearly 30 YOC regions. Learn more about Youth on Course below.
The Nebraska Golf Association has provided affordable golf for juniors since 2012 through the FORE! program. Last year, more than 1,500 juniors played nearly 6,000 rounds as members, and now with Youth on Course, they will have the opportunity to play even more.
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 membership card. From there, you can hit the links!
The membership application for the 2019 season is now open, visit the Youth on Course page to join/renew.
About 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.
It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for what we were doing outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity. Youth on Course operates as a separate 501(c)3 that partners with state and regional golf associations across the country.
To date, we have expanded Youth on Course to 29 regions, subsidized more than 750,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 115 interns and 362 caddies, and award $250,000+ in scholarships annually.
