The mission of GOLS is to enhance quality of life and personal growth through outdoor recreation and education. By providing active living opportunities, we promote wellness and lifestyle changes. GOLS offers a wide variety of programs for children and adults alike, including kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, and adventure climbing. We are located just outside Spartanburg, SC, in Glendale, a historic former mill town. We also host educational seminars and speakers series. So avoid the stress and hassle of planning an outdoor excursion. Come to GOLS instead. We provide all needed gear, safety equipment, and instruction. All you need to bring is a desire to learn. Courses and classes are open to the public, so everyone has the opportunity to participate. Whether you want a fun family activity on a Saturday afternoon or desire to master a new sport, GOLS has something for you.
