TESTIMONIALS

“It was a very rewarding experience for me to be a part of Thinking Outside The Tee Box. My partner and I talked about many things, mainly preparation and balance – together, we recognized that there is always time for others, but what’s most important is making time for yourself.”

Adrienne Coleman
Business Professional

“I really appreciated all the help and advice from my mentor. My favorite part of Thinking Outside The Tee Box was being able to talk to my mentor about things we are both interested in.”

Caroline Smith
Program Participant

“At Traditions of Golf Challenge I learned that golf is not just about how well you can play the game. This event taught me how to prepare for golf in the future, not only with ability but also knowing the rules, history and etiquette. These things are essential when I start thinking about high school golf or becoming a caddy.”

Levi Hanegraaf
Program Participant
South Suburban Home School & Gym Group

“The best part of Traditions is playing golf with my teammates. I love to play and course was excellent. The team was so excited when I stuck the ball  on the green on the last hole. It was fun being older and returning to Traditions of Golf Challenge so that I could help my younger teammates.”

“The program is more than kids learning the basic fundamentals of golf. The guest speakers that participate in the program provide a very positive message about making the right choices now and later in life.”

“We are extremely excited to be hosting the 2015 Palmer Cup. This event is in tune with everything we do here from our Kids Golf Foundation, caddie program, and commitment to amateur golf, as well as being the home of the Northern Illinois University Huskies Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams. Arnold Palmer’s vision for bringing together the highly talented collegiate players with the young caddies and youth in the Junior Clinic is a true culmination of what is most important – growing the game. My team and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this special event.”

FCA JUNIOR GOLF CAMP SCHOLARSHIP HAS BEEN CHANGING KIDS’ LIVES SINCE 2000!

“Thank you so much for the scholarship to attend the FCA Junior Golf Camp. I had a ton of fun and made a lot of new friends that I am still in touch with. I am hoping to participate in more upcoming events through the Kids Golf Foundation, and am glad I have participated in others because of you. I learned a lot and am very grateful.”

“At the Foundation’s Training Session, I was most excited to learn about the funding and grants that are available for the program. People often don’t get involved in these kinds of activities because of the cost – but this is really an accessible opportunity.”
