Grandfathers For Golf mission statement:
“Grandfathers For Golf is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to teaching children from both low-income families and financially solvent families how to play the game of golf. Grandfathers is based in San Jacinto, in the Inland Empire area of Southern California. We work with school districts to sign up students and arrange busing to and from participating golf courses. We currently have two participating golf courses, the Golden Era Golf Course and The Country Club at Soboba Springs. We also work with the Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) and its Youth on Course program.
In addition to learning the game of golf, kids learn other invaluable life skills including patience, manners, etiquette, responsibility, teamwork and so much more.”
