Do you want to help grow the game of golf while building a loyal customer base? Why not become a participating Youth on Course facility?
Youth on Course players pay no more than $5 for their round of golf, whether it’s 9 or 18 holes, plus your facility receives a subsidy per round from the GAM Foundation to bridge the gap between the club’s posted junior walking rate and the YOC player’s payment. The purpose of Youth on Course is to fill your tee sheet on select days during a specific time slot of your choice. Your club can now fill the traditionally unused times without the loss of revenue and while giving back to the game, providing a safe and fun environment for juniors.

How often does my facility get reimbursed? Pending the subsidy payment is more than $100, the club will receive payments every other monthly during the primary golf season beginning as early as June. The exact subsidy schedule is included within the agreement form. How does my course keep track of kids playing here so we can get the right reimbursement? There is an online check in system that is very user friendly. The club will get custom login credentials from Youth on Course National, allowing for quick, easy, and daily registration of YOC players that play at your club. How will I know if kids are Youth on Course members when they check in? Youth on Course members should have their Member# available via the YOC app, printed membership card or showing their GHIN mobile app which shows the club affiliation of ‘Youth on Course’. Membership can still be verified by providing their GHIN# which is the same number as their Youth on Course Member#. The preferred method is when the junior checks in for golf, their member # is input into the YOC online portal, which validates their membership instantly.
Can my local high school or junior group clinic use the YOC discounted rate for their course access payment?
The Youth on Course discount should not be utilized during any "organized play". This includes high school team practice, any outside/organized group instruction, etc. Each organized group is to set up their own course access, while YOC is eligible to the individuals during the off-season or non-organized play time.
What if I don’t want kids at my course during busy Sunday mornings or during tournaments? No problem! YOU (The Club) set the times that juniors can play the course using this discounted rate. It’s requested that tee times are made by the juniors within the availability set by the club. Tee times can also be required when listing your availability via the YOC app, GAM.org website or YOC.org website.
