Youth on Course Program
Golf teaches important social, mental, and physical skills and each round is filled with learning potential. Providing youth with access to affordable golf is the core of what YOC does. Youth on Course members play golf at hundreds of participating courses for $5 or less, a number of them right here in the Miami Valley.

Local Rule for Stroke and Distance
Your Association has put the final touches on our Local Rules and Conditions of Competition. Our competitions committee has also decided to adopt the Local Rule for a Ball that is Lost or Out of Bounds (E-5) in all but the following Events.

  • All USGA Qualifiers
  • The Metropolitan
  • The Sr and Mid Am
  • The MVTI.

This does not prevent you from playing a provisional ball and in most cases it is still wise to do so.  This local rule is not available to the first ball when you put a provisional ball into play.
Can you Post Your Scores?
