The Scottish Junior Golf Partnership wants to turn a former nine-hole course in Ruchill, Glasgow, into a site for coaching school golfers in the community.
Scotland's bid to host the 2009 Ryder Cup includes a pledge to put a golf club in the hand of every nine-year-old. Now schools are being asked to help reopen the course, which closed in 1997.
Colin Montgomerie is backing the project, which the partnership hopes will act as a catalyst for developing child-friendly golf facilities in Scotland.
He says: "We need to provide as many children as possible with the opportunity to understand the traditions and ideals of the game."
The course might feature junior-only practice ranges and specialised pitching and putting areas. The intention is that it would be non-threatening to beginners but fun for the more experienced.
