Youth on Course celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

$1 green fees available to Youth on Course members on July 10th

This July 10th, the Youth on Course program is celebrating ten years of providing young people with affordable golf. To celebrate the landmark, the program will be offering golf to Youth on Course members for $1 at participating courses on July 10th.

“The Youth on Course program has really taken off since its launch,” said Scott McNevin, Executive Director of the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA). “The $1 special anniversary rate is incredible, and the regular Youth on Course rate is right around $5. It’s truly an inexpensive way for JGAA’s Youth on Course members to get out there and play golf outside of official JGAA events.”   

Youth on Course expanded to Arizona in 2015 in partnership with the JGAA. A JGAA Competition Membership – $70 annually – automatically enrolls junior golfers into the Youth on Course program in addition to eligibility to register for JGAA tournaments and other events. Those who do not wish to compete in JGAA events may choose the Youth on Course membership only for a $10 annual fee.   

Currently, 17 facilities in Arizona are participating in Youth on Course including: Aguila Golf Course, Apache Creek, Arizona Biltmore, Cave Creek Golf Course, Dobson Ranch Golf Course, El Rio Golf Course, Encanto Golf Course, Fred Enke Golf Course, Las Colinas Golf Course, Longbow Golf Club, Palo Verde Golf Course, Papago Golf Course, Randolph Golf Center, Silverbell Golf Course, Starfire Golf Club, Sunland Springs Golf Course and Wigwam Resort. 

Plus, JGAA members may also regularly play for as little as $5 at more than 200 available courses in nine other states including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Kansas and Missouri.

Youth on Course began with the dream of making the game affordable for young people. Thanks to a generous gift by the Morton Foundation in honor of their late father, Youth on Course was born July 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association. Within five years, the program was thriving and it quickly established a national identity.

To date, Youth on Course has expanded into eleven regions, subsidized more than 450,000 rounds of golf, and has more than 15,000 members nationally. For information and a list of Youth on Course, visit, or call 831.625.4653.

Open to boys and girls age 8-18, the JGAA conducts more than 100 junior activities each year including tournaments and clinics with an underlying goal to educate, motivate and inspire Arizona’s future community leaders through the game of golf and the many life lessons it teaches. To learn more about JGAA membership and the local Youth on Course program, visit or call 602.944.6168.
