Her Own Words – McLane High School Senior
“My love of and dedication to golf led me to leave a destructive life behind. I now have the courage to take on the
incredible opportunities I never dreamed were possible growing up through inner-city schools where nobody played golf.”
– Josseline Garcia Morales
Josseline, who just graduated this summer, held a golf club for the first time in 2018. She credits that very moment as the catalyst which helped pull her away from unhealthy friendships which had left her distracted, unmotivated, and with slipping grades.
Her Youth on Course membership made golf affordable given her family’s limited financial means. She found friends, a support system, and quickly improved her game, eventually earning a spot on the McLane High School Girl’s Golf Team.
Josseline defied the odds and eventually was named Captain of the Golf Team and finished her Senior year with a 4.11 GPA. Her accomplishments earned her a YOC Scholarship and she will study Biology at The Master’s University this fall.
Testimonials from Coaches
Thank you very much for approving the grant request for the Campolindo High School girls. Your note was sure an uplifting moment during these trying times. We have our fingers crossed that we will be able to hold our golf season this coming March.. I share your enthusiasm for Youth On Course (and also The First Tee Organization). Youth On Course is a tremendous value for our players. Thank you again for the great news! We will put the grant to great use.
– Gary M. O’Neill, Campolindo High School Boys and Girls Golf Coach
Wow!! On behalf of Monta Vista High School and the girls golf team, thank you very much for this exciting news! We are so very grateful to the NCGA for supporting junior golf with tournaments and the Youth On Course program. YOC membership makes a real difference in reducing costs of our practice rounds
during the season as well as for player development in the off-season. Please accept our sincere gratitude once again for your most generous support! Wishing you all the best
