Golf Canada runs a variety of programs aimed at introducing juniors to the game of golf across Canada.
These programs include:
CN Future Links
CN Future Links is Canada’s national junior golf program, designed to provide “best in class” golf programming for junior golfers across the country.
Future Links offers a full suite of programs for boys and girls ages 6-18, from first timers to those with a high degree of experience and playing ability.
The programs include: Learn to Play; Junior Skills Challenge; Junior Golf League; Golf Buddy; Girls’ Club and Mobile Clinics.
CN Future Links began in 1996 to address the need for accessible, affordable junior golf programming in Canada. Since that time, CN Future Links has engaged nearly one-million young Canadians in the game of golf. CN Future Links is committed to keeping up with the evolution of the game by aligning with the Long-Term Player Development Guide (LTPD) framework, a project that was funded and supported by Sport Canada and the Coaches Association of Canada.
CN Future Links Championships
Future Links Championships consist of six regional junior golf tournaments aimed at providing exceptional Canadian junior male and female golfers with the opportunity to develop his or her skills and showcase his or her talents at the highest level of tournament golf.
Golf in Schools
Developed by Physical and Health Education Canada, in partnership with Golf Canada and the Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association, the Golf in Schools has been designed to enable elementary school teachers — regardless of their golf knowledge, skill or background — the ability to deliver essential physical education through the sport of golf. Each school is outfitted with a full set of plastic golf clubs and equipment.
