VIDEO: Calgary Centre making mark as Canada’s flagship junior golf facility

Golf Canada Calgary Centre

When the Golf Canada Calgary Centre was established in 2001, the strategy was very clear-cut—create a well-rounded training facility (academy, range, executive par-3 and mini golf) that delivers best-in-class programming and an inviting experience to all types of golfers.

Since its inception, the Calgary Centre has been at the forefront of quality junior programming in Canada. For Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer, Jeff Thompson, the Calgary Centre continues to push the needle when it comes to junior golf and Long-Term Player Development.

“The Calgary Centre has been our flagship facility with respect to piloting programming and coaching programs that appeal to all types of golfers—including schools in the community, women’s groups and families looking to get involved with competitive golf programs,” said Thompson. “The coaches and instructors on staff have done a tremendous job in maximizing programs available to them such as CN Future Links and Golf in Schools. It is our vision that National Junior Golf Development Centres like the Calgary Centre will lead the way when setting an example for best-in-class junior facilities.”

Seven PGA of Canada Class “A” professionals are on staff at the Calgary Centre, delivering a full suite of junior programs, including the Get Linked initiative which provides grants that connect CN Future Links facilities to nearby Golf in Schools sites.
