Grandfathers For Golf, based in San Jacinto, CA, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to teaching underprivileged children (and all others) how to play the game of golf, which promotes fellowship, health, discipline, and sportsmanship. We work with school districts to arrange busing to participating golf courses, primarily Golden Era Golf Course in San Jacinto, and Echo Hills Golf Course in Hemet. We also work with the Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) and its Youth on Course program.
Signups for the Fall 2023 session are now closed. Please check back for info on the Winter session.

GfG is now accepting applications to our Fall 2023 program for children 7 years and up. Classes will start Thursday, August 31, from 4 pm until 5:30 pm. This will enable those kids who get out at 3:45 to continue with us. We will keep this time until the change in Daylight Savings Time will make it dark around 5 pm. Classes are held at Golden Era Golf Course in San Jacinto and run for six weeks (full schedule TBD).
Once again GfG is a completely FREE program. Each child will receive free of charge a shirt, a hat, appropriately sized golf clubs and bag and balls.
G4G never charges for its services but does accept donations. Customary donations are $25 per child per session.
For more information or to sign up by phone, call Tony Viola at 909-754-4148.
PLEASE NOTE: Children must be at least 7 years old to sign up.
