NCGA FOUNDATION YOUTH ON COURSE Youth. Golf. Philanthropy. T


he fairways of life are not always fair and giving back to the game and the local community isn’t an obliga- tion for all, but don’t tell that to the members and staff of Lake Merced Golf Club. The esteemed golf club in Daly City has been incred- ibly supportive of the NCGA, NCGA Foundation and golf in the region for years. From hosting Rules of Golf seminars to fundraisers and prestigious tournaments, there are few places in Northern California or elsewhere that have supported golf as much as Lake Merced.

Host of the inaugural NCGA Junior Championship in 1930 (the club has hosted the event dozens of times since), home of two NCGA presidents, the 2012 U.S. Junior Girls Championship and the 2009 State Amateur, the staff and members at Lake Merced simply love to give back.


Last year head professional Dan Burke and his staff of instructors taught the pilot phase of the Foundation’s Youth on Course clinics.


Burke enjoyed the program and with the support of Gen- eral Manager Donna Lowe and a generous membership, the club has agreed to host a new clinic series premiering this fall in partnership with the YMCA of San Francisco. Clinic participants will undergo a curriculum that focuses on golf fundamentals and etiquette, but also provides life skills and nutri- tion education. Progress will be tracked on an ongoing basis. The Lake Merced clinic series joins fi ve other sites in various regions of Northern California. Participants will become eligible for intern- ships and scholarships in the near future through the Foundation’s continuum of services.
