All of our programs give children a safe place to grow with coaches trained to create supportive environments and who help them navigate challenges during golf lessons but more importantly, off the course. Our students take the lessons they learn in the program with them in everything they do. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see students self-confidence grow tremendously, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.
