We seek to provide programs and activities that Young's is uniquely positioned to carry out exceptionally well, and that fosters positive and unique recreation and education opportunities to nurture the health and potential of children, adults and families.

GEORGE & MARGARET

The George and Margaret Young Story

We strive to stay true to the legacy of George and Margaret Young by providing year-round recreational opportunities, special events, and community-driven educational programs. Young’s is your place to gather, celebrate, relax, and play.

The Young’s 3000+ acre property was generously donated to Iron County by George and Margaret Young for the public to enjoy. An Iron County native and avid golfer, George Young designed the 18-hole course, which opened for community use in 1984. Young’s clubhouse was built in 1993 and was dedicated to George and Margaret in their memory.

George and Margaret operated the Chicago Fire Brick Company, a very successful manufacturing business owned by Margaret’s father. George and Margaret fell in love while attending college in Chicago and spent many summers in Iron County enjoying the beauty of the area. During their stays they acquired significant property and treasured all the land had to offer.

The Youngs established a Trust so that the property would remain a place for the community to enjoy and learn. Because of the Young's generosity, we can offer an affordable fee schedule which allows Iron County residents even more affordable access to all programs and services.
