The Triad Youth Golf Foundation is a non-profit organization that creates innovative programs to promote junior golf in North Carolina. The foundation is headquartered in Greensboro, NC but its reach expands into Charlotte, Winston – Salem & Raleigh.
The mission of TYGF is three fold:
- To facilitate opportunities for all junior golfers to use golf as a tool to develop their character and their golf games through programs and leagues thatare affordable to kids from all economic backgrounds.
- To promote the game of golf to the youth of the community through a five level program called the “Developmental Reward Program”. The program is designed so the participants can earn rewards such as their own set of golf clubs through their consistent participation and effort.
- To create a mass awareness about the game of golf thru Free Clinics and our Golf Fore Juniors – At School – After School Golf Enrichment Program. This program utilizes a school facility to teach a more comprehensive golf class to the schools students. The foundation links with local teaching golf professionals to provide 2 days of hands on instruction for the students and PE teachers to learn and teach the game of golf at their schools. PE teachers are then given golf equipment to teach their students the 4 basic dimensions of golf.
