”We are thrilled to see a local company like Scratch Golf contribute to our community and the tradition of Hart Baseball, which has served the Santa Clarita Valley since 1954. We have served thousands of kids in this community through our softball and baseball programs and we hope they can enjoy the opportunities available at Scratch Golf as well”, said Jason Farrell, President of Hart Baseball.
Scratch has an 11,500 sq ft indoor golf center in Santa Clarita. Juniors come to Scratch after school and/or on weekends and practice the game of golf in the same manner that soccer, baseball and football are taught and learned. Adult programs range from beginner classes, open practice, advanced training sessions and evening leagues played on the simulators. The center features four distinct areas – putting, short game, fitness and simulator room for full swing. In addition, the center is available for corporate events, fund raisers, group outings and meetings…..scratchgolfcenters.com.

Since 2006, five teams have won either national or world championships in their divisions. Over 3,000 kids (and many of their families as coaches and volunteers) in Santa Clarita participate each year in one of many leagues. Leagues and teams are available for kids ages 4 to 18.
