Welcome to Inner City Youth Golfers, Inc. (ICYG)

ICYG, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, which was founded in the year 2000 in Riviera/West Palm Beach, Florida. We have since expanded to several other locations because of "our unique" approach of combining golf and education. ICYG, Inc. continues to expand and has already become the world's #1 inner city youth national golf program.

Youth Group at Golf Course

We provide a wonderful opportunity for all children ages 7 to 18 wishing to understand, learn, play, and enjoy the game of golf that most importantly teaches and instills life skill values that will stay with a person as they mature. This website offers you an unparalleled opportunity to see how we use the game of golf to promote academic excellence and mentoring of our youth in order to prepare them for the brighter futures of tomorrow.

We know that you will enjoy this site and hope you find the information about events and activities informative, useful, valuable, and enjoyable. If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments, please let us know by clicking the Contact Us link. Call our youth program in Riviera/West Palm Beach, Florida, about our golf instruction and golf tournaments for teens and children in our community.
