year, the CGA is proud to have 4,942 junior members among our 84,000
members. As part of their membership,
kids enjoy access to Colorado Youth on Course.
This unique program provides $5 (or less) rounds of golf at 42 participating
courses and facilities in Colorado and 2,000 courses throughout the U.S. and
Canada. Each round is subsidized thanks to support from our generous donors and
raise awareness and financial support for this program, 12 intrepid golfers are
participating in “Golf's Ultimate Charitable Challenge” on September 25th
at CommonGround Golf Course and become “Hikers” and take on the formidable
challenge of playing (and walking!) 100 holes of golf in one day. All in an effort to help ensure young people
have affordable access to golf and the life-changing opportunities that come
with playing the sport.
Leading the CGA’s 4th 100 Hole Hike in Colorado
is Brandon Kuhl, a junior golf parent and advocate for the CGA & Youth on
Course’s commitment to create affordable golf for kids around the state. Learn more about Brandon and why everyone
should support the CGA’s annual 100 Hole Hike.
Junior golf has been a part of our families lives for the last 7 years
through my son Miles. I have watched Miles grow through the game and the people
and friends that he has met here in Colorado and across the country
because of golf will be there for a long time. I want to give back to the
golfing community and raise money so other kids can experience what we have
over the years. And this is the best way to do that as I like a good
The challenge of the day! It isn't easy to spend 10+ hours, walking 30+
miles and playing 100+ holes of golf. But when we tee it up at 6:30am, as
the sun starts to rise, there is nothing better than knowing that you are
helping to create opportunities for kids to play golf.
Around 1pm! Just as you finish eating the lunch provided, the sun is
shining directly on you, and you look down at your score sheet and realize you
still have 27 more holes to play!
This year has been a little tougher to prepare for. Normally I am training
for a race or some sort of big event but this summer we have spent time
traveling to a few of Miles golf tournaments, but I am starting to
increase my training and will be ready! I think it gets easier as I know
what to expect!
I appreciate everyone who supports this cause and would like more people to
consider doing it. The Colorado Golf Association and Youth on Course strive
to create programs developed for kids across the country to experience playing
golf, something that is often out of reach. By making golf more
accessible for kids, they will get the ability to be outside, meet new and
lasting friends and learn different lessons that can help transition them to
their adult lives.
