About Us

We enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.

About our Youth Program

We serve kids and teens throughout an 8 county metropolitan Atlanta area without restrictions for residency or socioeconomic status. Our youth program provides life skills and golf training for children ages 7-17.

Each year we conduct three programming sessions; Spring, Summer and Fall. Sessions consist of 8 weeks of golf and life skills classes. Registration is held the month prior to the start of each session. Please visit our Schedule Page for more detailed information.
