The most recent addition to Youth


on Course is the Caddie Academy, started last year. So far, seven private clubs in the Bay Area and Poppy Hills are participating, with kids ranging from eighth graders to seniors in high school. All are committed to caddie on weekends during the school year, and as often as they can during the summer. Club members pay a trained Youth on Course caddie a base fee of $25 a round. Youth on Course matches that $25 in a VISA gift card, and also puts $50 into a college fund for every loop. In the caddie program at Clare-


mont CC, 2 miles from downtown Oakland, the emphasis is on giving some 20 kids exposure to the stan- dards of the game and to the adults who play it. “The goal isn’t to produce lifetime


caddies, but individuals whose lives are enriched by the game,” says Claremont assistant professional Morgan Davies. Perhaps Youth on Course isn’t just


like a perfect golf lesson. Maybe it actually is the perfect golf lesson— one the rest of the industry should follow.
