Youth On Course

Golf teaches important social, mental, and physical skills and each round is filled with learning potential. Golf Ontario and Golf Canada are proud to help provide youth with access to affordable golf. Youth on Course members can play golf at participating courses for $5.


All junior members of Golf Ontario/Golf Canada will automatically receive a ‘Youth on Course’ membership.

If you are not a current junior member of Golf Ontario/Golf Canada please join here and become a member today. One of the many benefits of your new membership will be access to the “Youth on Course” program.


Your GC number is also your Youth on Course number, which you can use to access your digital Youth on Course membership card when you register for the app.


  • History

    Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation – a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, the program was thriving and we expanded opportunities for our members to include a caddie program, paid high school internships and college scholarships.

    It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for what we were doing outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity. Youth on Course operates as a separate 501(c)3 that partners with state and regional golf associations across the country.

    To date, we have expanded Youth on Course to 38 regions, subsidized more than 975,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 200 interns and 735 caddies, and award $250,000+ in scholarships annually

  • FAQ

    Do I have to take a curriculum?

    Yes. After joining for the first time you will need to complete the online curriculum to activate your membership number. You will get the link via email to the online curriculum after joining, and it takes about 15 minutes to complete.


    What age do I have to be to participate in Youth on Course?

    Do I need take the curriculum before or after I pay for my membership?

    When you pay you will receive an email prompting you to take the curriculum, so pay first.


    What do I do with my membership number?

    Having an active membership number means that you paid for the year and are able to use your membership. Your number can also be used to establish a handicap to use to track your progress. The World Handicap System helps make the game of golf more enjoyable by allowing golfers of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.


    When will I get my membership number?

    After you sign-up, you will receive an email with your number and a link to complete the online curriculum. It will take up to 24 hours before your Youth on Course membership will be active and allow you to create an account in the app and book a round to play.

    If you already have a handicap number from another club be sure to sign up with that number to avoid being assigned a new one.
