Ace Kids Golf

Ace Kids Golf Program introduces disadvantaged Oakland kids to the game of golf, providing instruction, STEM curriculum, equipment and transportation to and from local golf facilities. Unlike other East Bay golf organizations for youth, Ace Kids Golf exclusively serves low-income inner-city kids offering their complete programs free of charge. Their professional staff and volunteers help kids learn the basics of golf, along with many life skills. The kids take part in a sport that teaches discipline, respect and responsibility. They interact with positive role models who help them succeed in school and set goals for the future.

Thanks for the support of The Olympic Club Foundation, Touchstone Golf Foundation, Northern California Golf Association, Lowell Berry Foundation, Googie and Friends Annual Fundraiser, GCBAA Sticks for Kids Program and Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation. Ace Kids Golf's sessions are available through public schools and City of Oakland Community Centers after school and in the summer.
