Pro Kids City Heights
In 1994, in partnership with the City of San Diego, Pro Kids took over golf operations at the Colina Park Golf Course and started delivering golf and life skills instruction to youth in the community. Local police officers were so excited about the program that they volunteered to clear debris from the golf course, but no amount of cleaning could improve the tattered clubhouse.
In 1999, Pro Kids found a guardian angel in the Building Industry Association (BIA) through its charitable foundation, BIA Cares for Kids. The BIA built a two-story, 7,000 square foot facility with a community room and golf simulator on the first floor, and space for education programs on the second floor. When the clubhouse opened in October 2001, BIA members had donated over $960,000 in materials and labor to the $1.7 million project.
In 2012, Pro Kids expanded the clubhouse to meet increased demand for services. The remodel added 1,200 square feet of program space, including a new Teen Lounge and Scholar Center.
In 2003, with the help of the USGA, Pro Kids revitalized the par-3, 18-hole Colina Park Course, restoring fairways and greens and adding a water feature. In 2013, a multipurpose field and short driving range replaced an underutilized putting area. In 2015, disc golf was added. Colina Park Golf Course serves Pro Kids members and is open to the public.
