EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – 2nd Swing Golf announces today its partnership with Youth on Course – the non-profit organization dedicated to opening doors and transforming the lives of young people through opportunities on and off the golf course – to create a golf club donation program that will benefit youth golfers in the United States.

Committed to making the game more appealing, inclusive and accessible to nurture the next generation of lifelong players and lovers of the game, Youth on Course gives its members opportunities to grow on and off the course. Offering subsidized rounds of golf, members can play at more than 1,400 courses across the country for $5 or less. In addition, Youth on Course provides off-course learning experiences through paid internships, its scholarship program and caddying opportunities.
Golf Club Donations to Youth on Course can be made in three simple steps:

The golf club donation program is powered by 2nd Swing Golf, a golf club retailer with five brick and mortar stores in the United States in addition to a robust online store at 2ndswing.com. 2nd Swing offers the highest trade-in values for golf clubs in the industry.
“We are incredibly excited for this partnership and to work with 2nd Swing Golf,” says Michael Lowe, vice president of programs for Youth on Course. “Knowing we can provide young golfers with the tools and equipment they need to succeed with 2nd Swing Golf is what we strive for – this will only provide young people with more access to the game we love.”
