“The OGA’s Youth on Course program has grown rapidly over the past three years, providing access and opportunity for kids to play more golf,” OGA CEO Barb Trammell said. “We are encouraged that kids from all backgrounds are taking advantage of this golf savings program. It also helps lighten the cost for parents who support their childrens' golfing activities.”
Of the nation’s 400 participating golf courses who offer Youth on Course rates, 50 reside in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
"Imperial is proud to partner with the Oregon Golf Association to raise money for its Youth on Course program," David Shaffer, director of marketing at Imperial Headwear, said. "The OGA is proactively expanding its player development programming and we are excited to support the growth of youth participation in Oregon."
