“My Golf, My Community, and I” fundraiser campaign

Through the years, this event has become a fall tradition in which numerous participants celebrate the key initiatives that had positive impact on the golf season that is coming to an end. They also enjoy the opportunity to meet with athletes-golfers that are the rising stars of our golf communities.

The Fundraiser Tournament is one of the initiatives comprised in the global provincial fundraiser campaign which is adopting a new image this year under the theme “My Golf, My Community, and I”.

With the same global objective of supporting the development of golf participation, smiling children faces will invite you to contribute to the cause and help them discover the game in their community. Every year, collected funds are used to support golf discovery initiatives such as Golf in Schools, the Future Links Field Trips and in-school visits with golf professionals. The First Drive Tour implemented in every region for children of 7 to 12 years old as well as the Regional Junior Tours (RJT) are also top priorities. More than ever, this theme expresses the motivations stimulating and directing our actions aiming to introduce more children to golf and facilitate the development of the game in our respective communities.

With the help of our numerous participants, donors, and partners, over $800,000 was collected through the previous twelve editions of the Fundraiser Tournament. This is the perfect opportunity to support the Federation, regional golf associations, and golf clubs to help them pursue their mandates. Aside from activities leading to their introduction to golf in their daily environment, we also need to facilitate the transition of children to help them discover the game in their communities and golf facilities.

New playing format

In this 13th edition, a new team playing format will also be introduced; making it even more fun and exciting for participants of the Fundraiser Tournament. Of course, following the tradition, young raising stars and athletes who are emerging on the provincial and national stages will also be in attendance to meet with our participants and challenge them throughout the day.
