Turnkey Beginner Golf Experiences: No Course, No Stress.

The Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation partners with YMCAs around the country to host beginner golf experiences uniquely designed to take place away from the golf course, in open spaces like your existing ball fields or gymnasiums, making them a seamless addition to your programming.

Specialized Learning Equipment

Our oversized clubs, balls and learning targets are uniquely designed to help children aged 3-9 learn the game more effectively and develop strong motor skills.

Game-Based Play Curriculum

Golf can be challenging for young kids, but we make learning fun. Our game-based play curriculum teaches the fundamentals and helps children find success early.

Teaching Kids Critical Life Skills

Our Faith-based camps and clinics teach character-building virtues in a fun and memorable way focused on developing healthy kids for life through the fun of golf.

What Churches and Families are Saying

“My husband and I never thought our daughter would play golf. After seeing and hearing how much she loved the Payne Stewart Golf Camp we sent her to, she wants to play golf all of the time!”

Parent of Payne Stewart Golf Experience Participant

Expanding Access to Beginner Golf

Every child should have the opportunity to experience beginner golf — to learn valuable life skills, build relationships, and of course, have fun. Unfortunately, for many kids, golf isn’t an option, whether it’s the cost of equipment or the lack of access to a nearby course. We are committed to changing that.

The Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation is expanding access to beginner golf by connecting children from all backgrounds to affordable, off-course learning experiences right in their own communities. But we can’t do it without partners like you. Through these partnerships, we are able to reach even more families and children who may otherwise not get this opportunity.

We provide everything you need to teach the sport, but as an established part of the community, you are the key to making a real impact. We would love to partner with you!
