“Players from the LPGA Tour return to the Los Angeles area on September 18th to help the Urban Youth Golf Program celebrate its 20th anniversary. The program, which was founded by the LPGA Foundation in 1989, brings golf and life skills to Los Angeles area youth, with special attention to youth in underserved areas. Since 1990, the program has joined forces with the LPGA Tour players in this event to raise funds used for properly fitted equipment, instruction and access golf courses and driving ranges. Since 2007 the event has doubled its impact when it began collaborating with the Los Angeles County Junior Golf Foundation and it now raises funds for both junior golf charities.”
