Youth on Course, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was established in 2006 to break down financial barriers and bring diversity to the world of golf. The core purpose is simple yet transformative: to provide young people with access to life-changing opportunities through golf. Youth on Course members have access to golf for $5 or less at over 2,000 golf courses across the United States, Canada and Australia.

In 2019 Alberta was the first province in Canada to pilot the program with Ontario joining for 2020. In 2019 over 1,000 rounds were played in the program across the province, in 2023 the rounds soared to almost 8,000. All junior members of Alberta Golf will automatically receive a Youth on Course membership number via email during the spring of 2024 for the 6th year of the program in Alberta.
