The GAM Foundation supports access to affordable golf for youth — an investment in the future of the game. Our simple goal is to help more kids play more golf for $5 or less through Youth on Course. We are making golf more affordable and accessible at a local level – an effort which requires help from generous individuals like you.

Golf is one of the safest activities for kids, and YOC Michigan is growing fast, supporting over 20,000 members as they have played 56,000 rounds (and counting) since 2020!

YOC members may play 75+ participating courses in Michigan for $5 or less. The GAM Foundation provides a reimbursement to the participating courses to supplement green fees.

Youth who play golf are spending time outside, surrounded by positive mentors and successful adults. Golf is a great social activity – one that can open up new doors for friendships. Most of all, it’s fun!

The GAM Foundation partners with chapters of The First Tee in Michigan, TGA of Southeast Michigan, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf ,and other junior golf associations across the state to help those golfers get involved with Youth On Course.

The Golf Association of Michigan Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Consistent with the overall mission of the GAM to “promote, preserve and serve amateur golf in Michigan”, the foundation allows the GAM to invest in new programming to support access to the game to the broadest possible audience of Michigan residents and to provide tax benefits for contributions from our supporters.

On average, a $20 donation can support one YOC member for the entire year - no amount is too small!

Thank you for your support!
