Every month, seven Marin City elementary and middle schoolers learn the game of golf, its rules and values, and its impact on developing life skills and relationships, thanks to 2023 Giving Marin grant recipient Marin County Cooperation Team (MCCT). The group’s Donald L. Williams Golf Program is the first program of its kind for Black youth in Marin County.
Through MCCT’s partnership with the Mill Valley Golf Club, Black middle schoolers have received monthly free golf range access (including golf clubs and balls), coaching from a golf pro, instruction and mentorship. Through a curriculum that includes golf etiquette, course mastery, sportsmanship, discipline and strategic thinking, the program introduces young golfers to the fundamentals of golf, instills the love of the sport, and fosters basic skills in a structured and educational setting.
MCCT was created as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure continuation of comprehensive support services in Marin City. Living in the second most racially disparate county in California during the pandemic further exposed its inequities. MCCT has since pivoted to serve the community and is now a community-wide umbrella service coordination agency that also provides its own direct services and youth programminG.  For more information, visit
