2 - Youth on Course Coming to Nebraska
The Nebraska Golf Association is proud to announce the transition of its FORE! junior access program into Youth on Course. Though the FORE! brand will go away, the principles and benefits of junior access will remain with the new program. Youth on Course is a similar junior access program that began in Northern California and has spread to nearly 30 regions in the United States over the past few years. The new program will bring improvements for both junior golfers and our participating facilities. Youth on Course members in Nebraska will now be able to play year-round for $5 or less, and can also take their cards to any YOC region. Check out the YOC website below for more on the program, and stay tuned for more information on how to sign up for your 2019 membership this spring.
