Youth on Course was started a decade ago by the Northern California Golf Association to provide youth ages 6-18 affordable life-changing opportunities through golf. Youth on Course members now have access to golf for $5 or less at over 1,400 participating courses in 37 States and 2 provinces.

In 2019 Alberta was the first province in Canada to pilot the program with Ontario joining for 2020. In 2019 over 1,000 youth accessed the program across the province. All junior members of Alberta Golf will automatically receive a Youth on Course membership number via email during the spring of 2020 for the second year of the program in Alberta.
