Sticks for Kids
The Sticks for Kids program from the Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA) Foundation is dedicated to introducing and teaching youth the fundamentals of golf through chipping, putting, club stance, grip, etiquette, and basic rules of the game. The program is centered on the philosophy that every child, regardless of socioeconomic status, should have the opportunity to play golf.
Since its inception in 1997, 560 Sticks for Kids grants have been awarded to golf courses, park and recreation communities, and various youth serving organizations. Each grant recipient is awarded 10 sets of junior golf clubs, teaching and marketing materials.
