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.
