About Us

We build experiences that build character. We are committed to providing programs that enable kids & teens, ages 4 through 18, to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By integrating the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, we create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids can carry to everything they do.
