“Youth on Course is proud to support our members both on and off the golf course,” says Michael Lowe, vice president of programs for Youth on Course. “Much like the game of golf, access to education should never hinge on a family's financial status, and alongside our scholarship donors, we are thrilled to be able to celebrate the successes of these 20 deserving students.”

In addition to subsidized rounds, Youth on Course puts its members' lives on a different trajectory by providing off-course growth and learning experiences including paid internships, a caddie program, and nationwide scholarships, with more than 300 students awarded with college scholarships to date totaling more than $2 million awarded through the scholarship program. | Facebook | Instagram | LinkedIn | Twitter
