About Youth on Course (YOC)

Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation - a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, the program was thriving and we expanded opportunities for our members to include caddie programs, paid high school internships and college scholarships.

It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for what we were doing outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity.To date, we have expanded Youth on Course to 19 regions, subsidized more than 500,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 115 interns and 362 caddies, and award $275,000+ in scholarships annually.

DALLAS, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the presenting sponsor of Hunger Action Month, global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® donated $75,000 to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), providing 225,000 nutritious meals to Texans in need. The NTFB is helping feed thousands of Houston residents displaced by Hurricane Harvey. In addition to its donation, Topgolf has been fundraising for the Houston Food Bank and Feeding America, the national network of food banks that comprises both the NTFB and the Houston Food Bank.  

 

"We are grateful to Topgolf for their support of the Feeding America network in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma," said Feeding America Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Operations Nancy Curby. "There are people struggling with hunger in every single county in the United States. However, when a disaster strikes, this need is compounded. We appreciate Topgolf for helping raise awareness of this great need."

 

The NTFB is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, providing access to more than 190,000 meals each day for hungry children, seniors and families through a network of more than 1,000 programs and 200 Partner Agencies in a 13-county service area.

 

"Raising awareness about the critical issue of hunger is especially important during September – Hunger Action Month," said President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank Trisha Cunningham. "We are so grateful to our friends at Topgolf who sponsored Hunger Action Month and helped raise food, funds and awareness for our mission. Thanks to Topgolf, we were able to put nutritious food on the table for our neighbors in need, and many more North Texans now understand how important it is to take action against hunger."

 

To combat increasing food insecurity in North Texas, the NTFB recently launched a 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025.

 

"After a devastating hurricane, a box of food or a case of water can make a person's day," said Topgolf Entertainment Group Co-Chairman and CEO Erik Anderson. "We are proud to work with Feeding America and its affiliates the North Texas Food Bank and Houston Food Bank to provide nutritious meals for communities in need."

 

Topgolf and Feeding America collaborated on a mini documentary about the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. To support Feeding America's fight against hunger, please visit www.feedingamerica.org/topgolf.
