LOOPER is committed to growing the game of golf by providing everyone, and most importantly kids, a good way to learn the game and work in the sport they love.
We know the more kids get involved in golf (playing or caddying) at a young age, the more likely they are to stick with the game when they become adults.
Through our mobile App, LOOPER encourages every customer and caddie choose a local golf related charity of their choosing. In return LOOPER donates $1+ from every loop to a local golf related charity of the customers choosing. Those charities and supporting organizations are listed below.
Youth On Course
Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation - a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, the program was thriving and we expanded opportunities for our members to include caddie programs, paid high school internships and college scholarships.
It quickly became apparent that there was huge demand for what we were doing outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity. To date, we have expanded Youth on Course to twelve regions, subsidized more than 400,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 75 interns and 237 caddies, and award $250,000+ in scholarships annually.
