Just for kids

  As part of a historic long-term strategic alliance, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) was announced as an “Official Youth Development Partner” of The PGA of America and United States Golf Association (USGA). 

With programming to launch in 2012, this partnership with the BGCA will impact the lives of youth across America through the introduction of the game of golf. 

Based on a successful pilot project first tested in 2010, the new partnership will feature golf programming and instruction taught by PGA Professionals, along with support from Boys & Girls Clubs' staff and community volunteers. The program is expected to roll out next year at 50 BGCA sites, hosting between 50 and 100 kids each.  The goal is to introduce golf to tens of thousands of kids nationwide. 


The bulk of the program will take place at Boys & Girls Clubs facilities, where the PGA Sports Academy curriculum and activities will be utilized to provide introductory experiences. The PGA Sports Academy combines golf skills and physical fitness in high energy activities that focus on play, as well as instruction. The Club members will enjoy field trips to local golf courses and additional programs will be developed, including low-cost course access for those kids who want to continue to take their new-found interest in golf to the next level.
