Pro Kids Oceanside
In 2002, Pro Kids’ founder Ernie Wright spoke with The First Tee and Callaway Golf about creating a youth golf program in North County. Finally, in 2012, Pro Kids started construction on its second facility in Oceanside.
Callaway committed $2 million to help build the 4,400 square foot Ely Callaway Golf & Learning Center, which opened on August 29, 2012. Designed by Bill Hayer, an architect, and former Pro Kids’ board member, it includes a classroom, workshop room, library, swing simulator room, and computer lab.
Another major force in the golf world, TaylorMade Golf, helped Pro Kids expand to North County by committing $1 million of support for the facility’s golf course. The Honors Course presented by TaylorMade, which opened in March 2013, is a six-hole, par-3 course with double tee boxes. Designed by Architect Gary Bye of the Rainville & Bye design firm, the course was honored by the American Society of Golf Course Architects, which recognizes the best examples of golf course architecture every year.
The Oceanside facility is open to Pro Kids’ members. The space including an outdoor patio and six-hole course is also available for special events and other public meetings. Please call the number below if you are interested in hosting an event at this site.
