"Our Children Our Future"


 

About Us
 


ICYG Students - Call our youth program in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, about our golf instruction and golf tournaments for teens and children in our community.

Golf enthusiast, Charles Anderson, an engineer with Pratt & Whitney for more than forty years, joined his first golf students sponsored by ICYG from the West Palm Beach Housing Authority in early 2000. Charles remains a loyal, dedicated member of the ICYG Advisory Board.


    Inner City Youth Golfers, Inc., is a 501, c, 3 tax-exempt organization that was started with the vision toward helping to make some of our inner cities better places to live, work, shop, and enjoy life a little bit better through the sport of golf. “Golf is the Carrot & Education is the Key” is implemented through the establishment of the “Malachi Knowles Scholarship Fund.” Its corporate office is in Riviera Beach, FL (USA) where the first program was started at John F. Kennedy Middle Magnet School, followed by West Palm Beach Housing Authority Golf & Tennis (Bear Lakes Country Club), Palm Beach County Urban League, Riviera Beach Academic Summer Camp and Indiantown Youth Club.  
    ICYG is specifically an academic excellence and golf program that uses the excitement, etiquette, rules, behavior, dress, manners, speech about golf to help inner city children focus on the positive, mold them into good citizens and make them future role models. Golf is provided on a scheduled basis after school, selected Saturdays and holidays.  School Teachers, law enforcement officials and community role models serve as mentors while professional and amateur golfers provide golf instructions as generally prescribed by the PGA, LPGA, and USGA.

    We believe that ALL parents, youth and volunteers must be on the same page: “Say No To Drugs – Say Yes To Education, Culture & Golf.”
