Foundation Receives USGA Grant The United States Golf Association awarded $20,000 to the NCGA FOUNDATION to support its Youth on


Course program.


The Association’s charitable arm provides deserving youth the opportunity to develop life skills and values through golf. The Youth on Course initiative provides accessibility and affordability of golf by offering youth across Northern California the opportunity to play some of the area’s best courses (more than 115) for $5 or less. YOC has evolved into a full scale continuum that introduces new kids to golf through free clinics and supports personal development and introductory career opportunities for adolescent golfers within the golf industry. The USGA is pleased to continue its long-standing support of organizations working to improve the lives of young people through the game of golf,” said Ron Read, the USGA’s director of regional affairs for the Western United States. “Such activities speak highly of the enduring values of the game.”
