Hello and welcome once again to the Flaghunters Golf Podcast ! Today on the Pod, we have Northern California Golf Association past President and my friend Pat Quinn. Pat has been an influential part of our topic today, Youth on Course.
Youth on Course is a program created by the NCGA to have Junior Golfers have access to participating courses for the grand sum of FIVE dollars per player. So for 5 bucks, a kid can go play golf with his or her buddies. Pretty cool right ? However, YOC (Youth on Course) goes much deeper than that which Pat and I discuss.
This subject is near and dear to my heart. I had the good fortune to be able to play in the afternoons when I was growing up at Old Del Monte GC here on the Monterey Peninsula. Juniors were allowed to play for free after a certain time. If it wasn’t for that, I may have not had the opportunity to play. Maybe I wouldn’t have been exposed to the game. I am forever grateful for programs like YOC. Not only to install the values that the game teaches us, also to grow the game that we all love.
I wish to give a big thank you to my good friend Pat Quinn for coming on and his selfless involvement with programs like YOC and the NCGA. For more information, go to www.youthoncourse.org and www.ncga.org
