The Golf Mission Purpose

The Golf Mission was created to reach youth who may struggle with purpose and who need someone to help share their journey.   Today's youth are overwhelmed (like many adults are) with a massive amount of messaging through social media, culture, and television.  Many of these children have come to find themselves lost and alone to navigate this world.  While this program is not only to teach golf to those without some connection to the game, but to connect with others through the common fabric of golf.  If you know of a child who could benefit from mentoring, please contact us via the contact page.  We will put you in touch with a PGA Professional in your area who can help find volunteer mentors at their course.  You are not alone.
