Y Kids on Course

We are proud to continue our youth golf experience at the YMCA with our Y Kids on Course youth golf program.  At the YMCA, we believe that golf is more than just a game.  The program helps youth participants discover how the skills essential to success on a golf course can help them flourish in life.  The Y Kids on Course program is built on a foundation that begins with the 4 YMCA core values: Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility. Supplementing these core values we will include some other life skills from our previous years’ curriculum, such as sportsmanship, integrity and confidence.  

Although the name has changed, the approach to teaching the game of golf will remain the same.  The lesson format teaches a series of important life rules that are reinforced by teaching the game of golf.

Participants can begin the program at age 7 at the Level 1 experience.  From there, participants will be evaluated and placed at the level that best suits their age and golfing ability.
