Ace Kids Golf Welcomes You

Make a Difference Today


Who We Are

Ace Kids Golf is the premier east bay junior golf program.


Our mission is to create positive and productive citizens in the community through youth development, life skills and educational opportunities using the game of golf.


Ace Kids Golf serves over 900 underserved youth annually from the ages of 8-18. 

Since 1998 we have introduced over 7000 Oakland youth to the world of golf.


In March of 2018, the First Tee of the East Bay abruptly shut down their doors leaving over 400 youth without the opportunity to learn essential life skills associated with the game.


Our goal for the 2019-20 school year is to add 200 displaced First Tee participants to our current roster expanding our reach to over 600 youth.


The game of golf is unique to each participant. It's challenging, frustrating and rewarding. Golf is an individual sport that differs from traditional team sports like basketball and football. Golf teaches mental discipline, eye and body coordination, and the development to swing a club that's unique to one's own ability to play. 


The game encompasses multiple attributes including honesty and integrity. Our youth learn to secure and anchor their ability to apply self-perseverance on and off the golf course. This increases their potential to commit to and attain their goals.

College scholarships for young men and women of color who play golf are readily available. HBCU's (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) recruit students from other countries to play on their golf teams because there are not enough qualified athletes in the United States.

Ace Kids Golf invites you to join us. Come and learn the great game of golf and take advantage of the opportunities that can aid in the success of our youth.

We'd like to thank the generous donors and partners who support our Youth Development, Life Skills and Educational Opportunities including:

Touchstone Golf, Olympic Club Foundation, Sticks For Kids, Lowell Berry Foundation, NCGA, Googie and Friends, Camp Sweeney, JFK University, Rotary Club of Oakland, Algorhythm, Monterey Peninsula Foundation, Special Olympics,  QUEST Foundation, The Barrios Trust Foundation and OUSD.
